Temperatures averaging about 26°C during the day and 16°C at night. The hottest months are from December to February. The gifted landlocked destination has a climate heavily shaped by its own topography and that of surrounding regions.

High mountains like Ruwenzori and Elgon along some of its margins, an elevated plateau and plentiful lakes — including Victoria, second biggest in the world and biggest in Africa — all exert a real influence.
