What are Tanzania Safaris like?

Tanzania is famous for its annual wildebeest migration. From Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve into the Serengeti National Park. Here both animal population and variety flourish. Plan your adventure safari tour in the months of July to November to see the migration in the North of the reserve and between December and March for the Southern area of the Serengeti.

Choose either a short safari or a longer overland trip for your Tanzania experience. Explore one of Africa’s greatest regions while in Tanzania. Highlights include the Ngorongoro Crater which is a dormant volcano, home to Africa’s Big Five.

Tanzania is also known for Africa’s highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro. ‘Kili’ as it is fondly known, is sought out by adventure enthusiasts around the world. A climb to the summit of this mountain is a huge feat and tops many bucket lists.

Make the most of your Tanzania experience with a short flight to the Zanzibar Archipelago. Bathe in the crystal turquoise waters and stroll on soft white sand. Hospitable locals are friendly and happy to share their piece of paradise. Make sure to discover more about the history of Zanzibar and it’s spice route.
Add to your trip a visit to the thriving city of Dar es Salaam. Once a fishing village, the city is now a vibrant metro. You can even catch a ferry to the islands of Zanzibar or Pemba from here.

Budget Tanzania Safari Tours are available as well as luxury comfort options. Either way you will fall in love with magnificent Tanzania.

When is the best time for Tanzania Tours?

During the months of July and August the weather is cool. In the dry season parks such as Tarangire are at their prime. It is also the best time to visit the Serengeti on safari. December to mid March is the calving season in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater which is amazing game viewing.

If you are headed to Zanzibar, plan your trip around June to October as the temperature is around 28 degrees Celsius which is ideal for lazy beach days.

Weather in Tanzania

Tanzania is a typical tropical climate with humid and hot days while cool at night. The heaviest rains fall from the middle of March to May, with light rain covering the area from October to January. Heavy rains can make certain areas impassable so please check with our consultants on when to plan your trip.

The high mountain areas such as Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru can have temperatures that fall to below freezing and can be quite unbearable at night.

While the dry season can have temperatures soaring to above 35°C in Dar es Salaam. Plenty of sunscreen of factor 50 is needed when you hit the golden beaches!
