Best Time For Safari In Tanzania

We expect most of our guests from June to October, which is the peak season. This is one of the best times to visit Tanzania or rather a safari. The dry season allows you to easily navigate through the National Parks, unlike the wet season in April and May, when it's raining. Otherwise known as the dry season, this is also the Best Time To Visit Serengeti, where you will get to see the wildebeest migration. A dramatic season indeed to watch predators, and the famous Big 5 of Tanzania, out in the open.

Important Points To Know Regarding Best Time To Visit Tanzania

The dry season is also known as the peak season as it is very much in demand. We recommend you to book your travel three months or earlier to get your choice of lodges. The same applies for December, which is the festive season around the world

The advantage of traveling in the low season is that overall safari rates drop down and most lodges have decent availability.

Best Time For Climbing Kilimanjaro And Other Mountains 

The Best Time Of The Year To Travel To Tanzania is generally from June to October and the same applies for hiking the mountains. Most climbers prefer the dry season when it is not raining. A handful of adventure lovers would love to climb during April, May and December when the landscapes are snowy or during the full moon night.

Best Time To Relax In Zanzibar, Mafia And Pemba

If you are visiting Tanzania on a honeymoon or for a beach holiday, the best season to visit Tanzania will be from June to December. You may expect slight showers in between, but these are not continuous or heavy rainfall. During this time you will be able to do a number of activities including: 

  • Snorkelling and deep seas diving 
  • Sunset cruise 
  • Sandbank hopping 
  • Kite surfing 
  • Off road biking and cultural explorations 
Month By Month Guide To Travelling In Tanzania
