Best Time to Visit Tanzania

Tanzania is one of the best safari destinations in the world. The Serengeti boasts the highest density of wildlife anywhere in Africa and the Selous has the largest population of wild dogs. The northern circuit can get quite busy, but the southern parks are relatively unknown so it’s possible to enjoy a more intimate safari experience. Peak season is July to October.

There is a chance of rain, the temperature is getting higher and the humidity is building. It’s still a good time to go as rates are lower and safari is excellent. At this time of year the migration herds are in the southeast of the Serengeti for calving season, so the Ndutu Plains are busy but it is amazing to see so many animals in one place.

Migration is still occurring in Ndutu. The weather is hot and humid with a chance of rain.

This is the green season, bringing lush grasses and bush that can make spotting game more difficult. However, this is still a wonderful time to travel – particularly for bird watchers as parks are full of migratory birds; especially in the south. Migration should be in the Grumeti area of the Serengeti heading north. See the Tour in June

 

Visiting Tanzania in July

This is also best time to visit Tanzania, this is the start of the peak season. The Migration is in the north of the Serengeti moving towards Kenya, an elephant starts to gather in Tarangire. The land is getting drier and spotting game is becoming easier. Temperatures are in the high 20°Cs to early 30°Cs and the humidity are low.

Peak season. Migration is still in the north. As the land becomes more parched, the animals’ behavior becomes more predictable. The dense bush in Ruaha is drying out so game spotting here becomes much easier.

Best time in Tarangire National Park and lake Manyara National Park

Peak season. The end of the migration is still in the north, with herds on both sides of the Kenya and Tanzania borders and high numbers of elephant in Tarangire. The northern circuit can be very busy, but it is less busy in the south, so for those who want to avoid crowds, it’s best to visit the southern parks.

Short rains. This is a great time to take advantage of low season rates and is still a popular time to travel. The rains tend to be overnight, but there is a risk of rain during the day as well.
