When is the best time to visit Tanzania?
One of the most developed countries of Africa, Tanzania is home to numerous wild species and has lush, broad grasslands that serve as a common habitat. Tanzanians are also among the friendliest and most welcoming people in the world. Tanzania draws millions of people every year to experience wildlife tourism thanks to its highly developed tourism industry in recent years.
Tanzania is a place where you can freely view more than 430 species of flora and fauna in well-known national parks like Ruaha and Serengeti, as well as the largest freshwater lake in the world, Victoria, the deep blue pearl island of Pemba, the majestic mountain Kilimanjaro, and particularly the Zanzibar archipelago, a tourist haven at sea.
Let’s travel to Tanzania and see it all for ourselves; it will be amazing!
Depending on the wildlife you hope to see, there is no optimal time to travel to Tanzania. Depending on when you decide to visit, you’ll have a slightly different experience because the country’s seasons and wildlife populations are determined by the rainfall. The Great Migration, which occurs every year across the Serengeti, is Tanzania’s main draw. Between July and September, a lot of visitors come here to see the enormous herds of zebra and wildebeest that cross the Mara River, trying to avoid the lurking crocodiles and other predators. At this time of year, though, the park will be filled with vehicles.
Between November and March, Tanzania’s “green season,” is significantly more sedate. Although there is a potential of showers, this is a great time to go birdwatching because thousands of migrating species are arriving. Herds from the Great Migration and their just born calves are also visible.
Only between April and May, when heavy rains can interfere with animal viewing, do we typically steer clear of Tanzania.
