Best Time To Travel To Tanzania
We recommend travelling to Tanzania during the dry season as more activities will be available and the roads are less likely to be flooded in national parks. Depending on the reason for the visit, a certain time of year may be best for you in particular.
If you’re wanting to witness the great migration of over 2 million zebra and wildebeests, you’ll want to plan that for June and July and to be in the western Serengeti. If wanting to just go on a safari in general, plan on visiting during Tanzania’s longest dry season from June to October. Keep in mind safaris can book out up to a year in advance, especially during the busy season of June to September. Enjoy the northern safari circuit including Arusa national park, Rift Valley and Lake Manyara National Parks, or the southern circuit including Selous and Ruaha National Park.
If wanting to summit the tallest mountain in Africa, Kilimanjaro is best climbed anytime from January to February or June to October. If wanting to witness the large bird migration, visit during March, November or December during the rainy season. April and May are often too rainy to be able to spot wildlife.
Rainy Season: March to May, November to December
Dry Season: June to October, January to February
