When To Travel Tanzania?

Though there is no right or wrong time for Tanzania Travel, still we recommend the dry season, starting from late June to October is the most popular and enjoyable time for Safaris Tanzania.

  • During the dry season, animals gather near water sources putting predators and their prey close. So this makes some exciting game viewing.

  • Again due to the water shortages the vegetation becomes thin causing improved visibility of animals. 

  • If you wish to avoid the huge traffic, you should consider visiting Tanzaniaduring the green season that starts from March to May or the short dry season starting from late December to February.
