Best Time to Fly to Entebbe Airport

Uganda experiences two distinct rainy seasons, which run from April to May and September to November, and two "dry" seasons, which typically run from December to February and June to September. The most popular times to visit the region are during the "dry" seasons. You can expect to pay much more for flights and accommodations at these times of the year than you would during the off-peak months.

Those looking to save on travel costs should consider booking their trip during the longer "wet" season (September to November). At this time of year, the days are typically sunny and dry, with rainfall mostly occurring at night or in the early morning hours. Travelling to the region during these months also allows visitors to experience the annual Mileage World Music Festival, a celebration of traditional Ugandan music. Regardless of what time of year you choose to visit Uganda, Skyscanner's Price Alert tool can help you book the cheapest available flight to Entebbe Airport. Simply enter your departure date into the tool, and you'll be notified of any fluctuations in air ticket prices.
