Best Time to Visit Queen Elizabeth National Park
The best time is between late December to February and June to August. These are usually dry months with dry driveways.
They are the best months for game drives and wildlife viewing as for many wild animals usually converge near water bodies creating great opportunities for watching hundreds of animals.
The other months are good for butterfly and bird watching, entry and safari lodge discounts and the fact that parks are less congested.
