When to visit Tanzania?
I don’t think there is really bad time to visit Tanzania however, it merely depend on which part of Tanzania you would like to visit & your interest.
Our peak season is starting from mid-December to February for Christmas & New year and this somehow coincides with European winter. February can be good as it is the time of calving & nursing for Wildebeest Migration on the southern Serengeti at Ndutu area. Low season begins at middle March to May. Besides of May being still wet it can be the good time to watch the Wildebeest Migration when start moving to other areas of Serengeti & at this time there will be few tourist around. This is the time lodges & camps lowering their prices, so you can travel cheap.
June – August is our winter time with perfect weather (balanced weather) & it is the best time for Wildebeest Migration, they will be wondering around Serengeti plains before starting crossing Mara River on their way to Masai Mara in Kenya around middle of July to Nov. All in all Serengeti is still the best place to visit with or without the Migration of herds.
