The park can be visited anytime of the year. Game viewing is spectacular all year round and the access roads are perfect. It is a smooth tarmac road all the way from Kampala and a well maintained graded murram road takes you within and across the park.
During the dry seasons of June to September and December to February, animals gather around the water points especially the lake and swamps so they are easily located and seen in numbers. Many of them also visit the water holes near the various lodges so you see them from everywhere. When it comes to the wet seasons of November to December and March to May, larger numbers can be seen in open valleys and grazing fields as the grass blossoms.
