When Is The Best Time To See African Gorillas

?

The best time to see them is during the dry season, which runs from June through September. During this period, many of the animals come down to rivers and lakes for freshwater bathing, so you are more likely to spot them there. But on some evenings when the weather is very hot or windy they dig into their nests in search of food. This means that it’s not always possible—but should you ever be able to visit a gorilla nest up close, do not miss your chance!
