Best Time to Travel to Tanzania

Planning your Tanzania safari will depend on your preferred activities or special interests.

The best time to Travel to Tanzania is during the dry season, from late June to October. The huge herds of animals of the Great Wildebeest Migration reach the northern Serengeti during the month of July and then make their way over the Grumeti River towards Kenya and the plains of the Masai Mara. There are no distinct seasons, such as winter and summer, in Tanzania, only the dry and wet seasons.

Dry Season in Tanzania

Between late October and December, the millions of animals slowly start making their way back to the Serengeti, with the first rains expected in January. The calving season for the wildebeest is in January and February, another safari spectacle not to be missed.

Wet Season in Tanzania

When considering booking a vacation to Tanzania, keep in mind the country’s position just south of the equator and that there are two rainy seasons. The short rains occur between late October and late December. Even though it is unpredictable, it shouldn’t hamper your safari of a lifetime to Tanzania.

The long rains in Tanzania happen between March and May and travellers can expect heavy downpours, high humidity and temperatures above 30 degrees Celsius. Your holiday to Tanzania can be impacted as some attractions, especially in Zanzibar, can be closed during this time.
