Best time to visit Western Region:

Dry Season (December to February and June to August): These months are generally drier with lower rainfall, considered the dry seasons in the Western Region. Weather during these periods is typically drier, with sunny days and lower humidity. It's an ideal time for gorilla trekking in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, exploring Queen Elizabeth National Park, and visiting the Rwenzori Mountains.

Wet Season (March to May and September to November): These months experience heavier rainfall and higher humidity. Rainfall can be intense, leading to occasional flooding and muddy roads. However, the landscapes become lush and green during this time, and it might be a good period for agricultural experiences.
