Tanzania by Z

The largest of the East African nations, Tanzania lies within the African Great Lakes region and is renowned for its vast savannahs, diverse wildlife and idyllic beaches. One of the greatest wildlife-watching destinations in the world, the, Serengeti National Park is a safari mecca. It is home to the “Big Five” (elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino), as well as over 1 million wildebeest and zebra who each year form the largest mass migration of animals on earth. Other Tanzanian highlights include Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak, and, Lake Manyara, world famous for its pink flamingos and tree climbing lions. The Ngorongoro Crater is also a must-see, the largest collapsed volcano in the world and now a hive of wildlife activity.

Offshore lies the tropical islands of Zanzibar, a historic melting pot infused with the atmosphere from the days of the Sultans and Mafia. The islands lie in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, known for untouched coral reefs teeming with marine life.

The best wildlife viewing months in Tanzania are during the Dry season from late June to October. The best chance of seeing the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti is during June and July and the time to see the wildebeest calving is late January to February. The southern and western circuit parks are best visited during the Dry season (June to October), unlike the more popular northern circuit parks that can be visited year-round. Tarangire is the only exception since its wildlife viewing is considerably better in the Dry season as well.

June to October (dry season)

+ June and July are the best months to see the wildebeest migration

+ Animals are easier to spot since they concentrate around waterholes and rivers and there is   less vegetation

+ There are fewer mosquitoes because there is little to no rain; skies are clear and most days   are sunny

+ Even though most tourists visit during the Dry season, the parks still don't feel crowded,   except for the Seronera area in the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater

- Mornings and nights get cold; it's recommended to bring warm clothing for morning game drives   in open vehicles during the months of June, July and August

November to May (wet season)

+ Late January to February is the time to see the calving in the southern Serengeti, and an excellent time to see predator action

+ The scenery is green and beautiful; it's low season, meaning lower rates and less crowded parks

+ Although wildlife is easier to spot in the Dry season, you'll still see plenty and most northern circuit parks offer good year-round wildlife viewing

+ Migratory birds are present, and bird watching is at its best

+ Except for March, April and May, rains are mostly short afternoon showers and seldom have a negative impact on your trip

- March to May is the peak of the Wet season

- Most big wildlife has migrated out of Tarangire NP, and wildlife viewing in Katavi, Selous and Ruaha is clearly better during the Dry season
