Tanzania’s tropical climate is relatively constant all year due to the country’s proximity to the equator. Daytime temperatures usually range from 25°C to 32°C with early mornings and evenings feeling noticeably cooler. It is important to note that regional variation and altitude will also come in to play.

If you have a particular preference of what wildlife you want to see, you may want to think carefully about which parks you visit and at what time of year you travel.

We are experts in creating Tanzania safari experiences and we often get asked the same questions from people planning their adventures.

In summary, the best time to go to Tanzania is

  • December to February sees the birth of new zebra and wildebeest so you may have the opportunity to see these young take their first few steps! Certain parks in Tanzania also have a short dry period in January and February between the short rains of November/December and the long rains of March to May.
  • June to October can be a busier time of year due to the Great Migration, however, this is also the best time to see much of the wildlife gathering around remaining waterholes due to the low rainfall throughout the winter.

Here is an overview of the different safari styles available in Tanzania. We can combine many of these safari styles in a tailor-made safari or you can book some of these into a standard safari.

Travelling in a 4×4 safari vehicle with a pop-up roof is the classic safari style. Our vehicles fit a maximum of 7 guests, each will have a window seat. These vehicles are fitted with seatbelts for each passenger, a 40l fridge with water and a plug point for charging cell phones and cameras.

To access remote areas such as the game parks in South Tanzania you can opt for a fly-in safari. This saves time and reduces travel time driving on rough roads. Board an airplane on a fly-in safari to the parks of northern or southern Tanzania or if you prefer to travel in style and comfort.

A walking safari will let you get up close and personal with nature and its animals. You will be accompanied by an armed ranger who will show you tracking techniques and teach you about the fauna and flora of his country. Perfect for adventurous travelers.

A boat safari in the south of Tanzania is a great way to see birds and animals from a new perspective. A half day boat trip on the Rufiji or Ruaha Rivers in the Selous Game Reserve provides an excellent opportunity to photograph water birds and animals coming to the water for a drink – you might see hippos, crocodiles, buffalo, giraffes and with luck, even lions.

Another option for adventurers is to explore the bush on horseback. You will not be detected by wild animals and should be able to get very close to them.

Floating silently in a hot-air balloon and see the bush from the air. This is especially popular in the Serengeti where you can see the sun rise over the savanna. Often a balloon trip is followed by a champagne breakfast in the bush.
