When is the best time to trek mountain gorillas?

Gorilla trekking safaris can be done anytime during the year. Most travelers often ask when is the best time to visit mountain gorillas. Well, the endangered species can be visited all year round despite the season. However, gorilla trekking safari is well done in the dry season between the months of May, June, July, August, September, early October, December, and January. Trekking through the jungle is quite easy when the grounds are less slippery and not muddy. However, the low season of February, March, April, and November has its own advantages. Hotels and lodges in Bwindi forest and other gorilla destinations normally give discounted room rates during the low season hence the best time to travel for budget travelers. Also, adventurous travelers can trek gorillas in the rainy season to get the most challenging but extraordinary gorilla encounter experience.
