While the national parks in Tanzania are accessible year-round, embarking on our safari during the dry season, from June to October, is strongly recommended. This period is considered ideal for several reasons:
Wildlife Concentration: During the dry season, the availability of water becomes limited, causing wildlife to congregate around the remaining water sources. This natural phenomenon increases your chances of spotting a wide variety of animals during game drives.
Comfortable Weather: Tanzania’s dry season offers pleasant and mild weather conditions. With less rainfall and lower humidity, you can enjoy comfortable temperatures, clear skies, and vibrant landscapes.
Clear Sightings: The drier environment means that vegetation is less dense, providing clearer sightlines and making it easier to spot and photograph animals, including the Big Five (lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros).
The wet season in Tanzania is characterized by intermittent rains. While the Great Migration herds may have moved to the southern Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area during this time, the exact timing and movement patterns of the migration can be unpredictable.
