When to visit Tanzania

Tanzania is the envy of most safari countries, as you can visit this destination all year round. However, the best time to visit for wildlife is during the dry season, between June and October, particularly for the peak of the wildebeest migration. Below, you’ll find a month-by-month guide highlighting the best time to go on safari:

The top parks to explore on your Tanzania safari

The general rule in picking the right Tanzania safari is to consider whether you want to experience the famous northern circuit or the quieter southern counterpart. The northern circuit includes the Serengeti National Park. You could combine time here with a few nights on top of the Ngorongoro Crater to witness Tanzania’s absolutely phenomenal big-game regions. Alternatively, you could head to the southern circuit on your Tanzania safari holiday to experience the country’s charming ‘off-the-beaten-track’ wildlife regions, such as Ruaha National Park. And of course, you can never go wrong with adding on some time on Zanzibar, for some R&R on those exceptional beaches.
