Tanzania in July


This month is in the middle of dry season, with guaranteed warm weather and wonderful wildlife viewing – such as chimpanzee in the Mahale Mountains, elephant in Tarangire, and the Serengeti’s Great Migration herds.

What's the weather going to be like in Tanzania in July?

  • Warm weather is guaranteed during the day, but mornings and evenings can get quite cold
  • It’s the middle of the dry season – July is the driest month of the year, with very little rainfall all month
  • Temperatures are milder than the previous six months
  • As game drives can be dusty, YZ recommends taking a light scarf and sunglasses to protect yourself

What are the highlights of visiting Tanzania in July?

  • The southern and western parks are a good option for travellers hoping to avoid the crowds, as these remain quiet year round and the wildlife viewing is just as good as in the north
  • There are fewer mosquitoes in the dry season
  • It’s the best time to see the Great Migration in the northern region of the Serengeti, as the Mara river crossings begin
  • Tarangire National Park boasts large herds of elephants
  • For those interested in seeing chimpanzees, July is the perfect month for visiting Mahale Mountains and Gombe National Park
  • The bush is drying up, so wildlife is becoming easier to spot
  • In early July the landscape is still looking beautifully green and lush after the long rainy season
  • The Zanzibar Cultural Festival brings traditional music, dance, and arts to the island’s Stone Town
  • There are loads of opportunities for really exciting wildlife photography this month

Any lowlights?

  • Availability can be limited in July, particularly in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area
  • As July is the start of peak season, property prices are at their highest
  • It’s a popular time to travel, so some areas can feel crowded
  • No rain means the ground is very dry and the air becomes filled with dust
