Welcome to Tanzania’s Seasons
Experience the Beauty of Each Season
Welcome to Tanzania, a country where the beauty of each season unfolds its unique wonders. Whether you seek wildlife adventures, lush landscapes, or tranquil moments, Tanzania offers something extraordinary year-round.
Dry Season (June – October)
Adventure in Abundance and Wildlife Spectacles
During the dry season, from June to October, Tanzania showcases adventure in abundance. The weather is generally sunny and the wildlife is abundant. It’s an ideal time for thrilling game drives in parks such as the Serengeti and Tarangire. Witness predator-prey interactions, spot elusive big cats, and be mesmerized by the breathtaking spectacles of the animal kingdom.
Green Season (November – May)
Lush Landscapes and Baby Animal Encounters
In the green season, from November to May, Tanzania transforms into a lush paradise. The landscapes are vibrant and teeming with life. It’s a time of renewal, with fresh foliage, blooming flowers, and grasslands that stretch as far as the eye can see. This season brings the opportunity to witness the circle of life as baby animals make their first appearances, and birdwatching enthusiasts will be delighted by the migratory species that flock to Tanzania.
Peak Season (July – October)
Witness the Great Wildebeest Migration
The peak season, from July to October, is when the iconic Great Wildebeest Migration takes centre stage. Witness millions of wildebeest, zebras, and other herbivores as they cross the treacherous Mara River and traverse the Serengeti in search of greener pastures. This dramatic natural spectacle is a sight to behold and a must-see for wildlife enthusiasts.
Shoulder Season (June and November)
Balance of Wildlife and Lower Crowds
The shoulder season, in June and November, offers a balance of wildlife viewing and lower crowds. The weather is pleasant, and the parks are less crowded than the peak season. It’s an excellent time to experience the best of both worlds, where you can still witness remarkable wildlife encounters while enjoying a more serene and intimate safari experience.
Off-Season (April – May)
Serenity and Lower Rates
For those seeking serenity and lower rates, the off-season from April to May is the perfect time to visit. While rainfall is more frequent during this period, it brings a sense of tranquillity and rejuvenation to the landscapes. Enjoy the peace and quiet of the parks, take advantage of lower accommodation rates, and savor the untouched beauty of Tanzania without the crowds.
Tanzania – where every season unveils its magic.
Whether you prefer the thrill of wildlife spectacles, the vibrant colours of nature, or the serenity of off-peak exploration, Tanzania offers an unforgettable experience throughout the year. Choose the season that resonates with your desires and embark on a journey filled with wonder and discovery.
