Best Time For Tanzania

Best Time For Tanzania

Tanzania is an all-year destination. However, from June to October (the dry season) is usually the best time to visit. This is because the foliage is less thick and it is easier to spot wildlife. The Great Wildebeest Migration is in Tanzania (Serengeti) for 8 months of the year, and usually, the best time to see it is in June – July. If you wish to see the calving season, January to early March is the best time to visit (Ndutu area). The northern parks of Tanzania (the Northern Circuit) can be visited almost any time of the year. This includes Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Lake Manyara National Park, and Arusha National Park. Tarangire National Park is best visited in the dry season (June to October), because sightings become difficult in the wet season. The Southern Circuit (Ruaha and Selous) and the Western Circuit (Mahale, Katavi, Gombe) are better visited during the dry season. Zanzibar is best during the drier months of August to October, and is best avoided during the long rains of March to May.

Tanzania can be visited all year round, but the coolest and driest time is from June to September, which is viewed as the high season, especially for game viewing. This time is also the best trekking conditions on Mount Kilimanjaro. December until February is excellent time to view the annual migration in Serengeti National Park.
