Weather & When To Go

Ishasha is a year-round destination and the camp is open throughout the year.  As the seasons change so do the variety and amount of game in the area.  Visibility for views is better in the wetter months – April, May and early December.  The drier months are June through to October and January through to March.

Ishasha Wilderness Camp is situated in South West of Uganda in the southern sector of Queen Elizabeth National Park. It is open all year round and is ideal to include in any safari that travels to the south west of Uganda.
