Tanzania features some of Africa’s best-known national parks and game reserves, including the legendary Serengeti, which millions of wildebeest cross every year as part of the great migration. Then there’s the ‘lost world’ of the Ngorongoro Crater, an extinct volcano which shelters endangered species.

To truly get away from it all, head to southern Tanzania. The vast wilderness areas of Ruaha and the Selous receive relatively few tourists, so they feel authentically wild and remote. If elephants are your thing, seeing them alongside the iconic baobab trees of Tarangire is an unforgettable experience.

While the Great Wildebeest Migration gets a lot of the attention, you might find that it’s better to visit Tanzania at off-peak times. You won’t see the huge herds, but the year-round game-viewing of resident wildlife is also excellent.

Tanzania has a consistent climate which just varies with altitude during their two dry seasons and two wet seasons.

Based on your dates of travel, we will design the best safari itinerary for you with weather in mind. Know that wildlife viewing is good year-round in most areas.

July – October: This is the long dry season when wildlife viewing is at its best. Wildlife congregate around water sources and grass is short. Guests can expect cool mornings and evenings. This is peak travel season for visitors.

Mid-December – mid-March: The short dry season and a good time to travel with the warmest temperatures being February. Lots of babies around after the rains, especially in Ndutu for the migration!

November to mid-December, April – May: These are the two rainy seasons, when landscapes are lush and skies dramatic. Wildlife is a bit more dispersed but still plentiful. Expect showers in the morning with clearing in the afternoon before clouds roll in again for heavier rains in the evening. Many properties close during April-May and roads can be muddy and impassable, especially in the South.
