Best Time to Visit Tanzania?
Tanzania enjoys a favorable climate all year long, but depending on the activities you plan to do while you visit, we prefer certain months over others. Planning to explore the wildlife of Serengeti then we recommend June to October which is the dry season. The wildebeest migration and calving are the most mesmerizing experience to have in your lifetime. Migration takes place during June and July and the calving season is during January and February.
