Description of Tanzania’s weather to know the best time to travel

Dry season- June to October

The dry season in Tanzania starts in June and ends in October. It is characterized with warm temperatures during the day, clear skies and cool temperatures early morning and in the evenings. The dry season is the best for wildlife viewing because vegetation is short and thin and animals can easily be spotted. Due to high temperature during the day and lack of rain, seasonal waterholes and rivers dry up and animals are forced to move to the main water sources to drink where you’ll find them in large herds. You can view the wildebeests crossing rivers in August and September.

During this period, Tanzania receives a lot of tourists since all parks are accessible, there are fewer mosquitoes and the weather is friendly for doing most adventurous activities like mountain climbing, chimp trekking nature walks and more. The coast is also enjoyable when you visit it during the dry season.

During this dry season is when you’ll see many visitors in tanazan ia especially in parks in the northern circuit; Serengeti and Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Even if the temperatures are normally high, you are encouraged to carry thick heavy clothes to use when it is cold especially early morning when going for game drives.

January to February

There is little rainfall received during this period. Grass is available for animals to feed on though it is short and animals can easily be spotted. This is the calving season for wildebeest in Serengeti national park. A lot of big cats are spotted around the areas where there are wildebeest and you may get a chance to see them hunting for the wildebeest calves. Common predators are lions, cheetah and hyena.

Wet season- March to May

Tanzanian experiences its wet season in the months of March, April and May. There is heavy rainfall, normally cloudy, grass in national parks grows tall and thick and animals can’t be easily spotted. Some trails become slippery. This makes it quite challenging to reach some areas of the park when trails get wet.

The wet season is fantastic for bird watching. Migratory birds from Europe and North Africa have arrived and the number of birds is higher.

This is also the period when wildebeests and other animals start leaving southern Serengeti towards the west to Serengeti’s western corridor. Visiting Serengeti during this period enables you to watch the initial process of the migration.

Major Destinations in Tanzania and the Best time to visit them

Major national parks in Tanzania are those in the northern circuit; Serengeti national park, Ngorongoro conservation Area, Tarangire national park, Lake Manyara national park and Arusha national park. Other parks such as Selous game reserve, Gombe stream national park, Kilimanjaro national park and more. The highly visited destinations are Serengeti and Ngorongoro Conservation area.

These two wildlife reserves record the highest number of tourists because of their exceptional great wildebeest migration and the high concentration of predators. These game parks can be visited any time of the year though the dry season is perfect. To watch the wildebeest great migration, June and July are the best months. Trekking and mountain climbing are also more interesting and easier in the dry months.

It is advisable to visit the rest of the parks especially those in the southern and western circuit during the dry season.

Generally the best time to visit Tanzania is during the dry season during the months of June, July, August, September and October. The parks have short grass and animals can easily be viewed, many animals go to water bodies since seasonal pools of water have dried up, trails are easy to drive through and no interruption of activities by rain.

The months of January and February are quite good because rain is not yet too much and it is the best time to see wildebeest calving.

It is very important to plan for your safari after clearly understanding the seasons and weather and the activities to do during the season. That’s why most travelers visit Tanzania in the dry season, that’s when Tanzania is experiencing the peak season.

Travelers who wish to enjoy discounted prices of facilities at these destinations can travel during the low season when there are fewer tourists. Parks are not overcrowded and you can view wildlife as perfectly as you wish to. It is however quite tricky to plan for a safari to Tanzania or any other safari countries in the wet season-low season but Adventure in the wild safaris can perfectly help you on this.
