Best Time to Travel to Tanzania

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.

Tanzania Safari Tours

Whether you are a wildlife enthusiast or adventure seeker, there is a multitude of reasons to book a Tanzania safari with Jenman. Rest and relaxation are at the order of the day with the inviting Zanzibar Superior Package. The vast beauty of the underwater world of this Tanzania island is best explored with scuba and snorkeling excursions.

Make your vacation to Tanzania the best with either the unforgettable 6-day Unrivalled Tanzania experience or the 7-day Tanzania Wildlife Breakaway. Both of these safaris expose travellers to the Serengeti National Park, one of Africa’s most famous wildlife areas and home of the Great Migration. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Ngorongoro Crater is also included in the itineraries.

The best Wildebeest Migration tours in Tanzania and Kenya awaits on the 15-day East Africa Migration Discoverer. Incorporated are three nights in the Serengeti National Park, two nights in the Masai Mara National Reserve and two nights in Lake Manyara National Park.
