Tanzania is a jewel of East Africa, boasting a treasure trove of natural wonders. The majestic Mount Kilimanjaro, the mesmerizing Ngorongoro Crater, and the vast Serengeti National Park are just a few of the country’s iconic destinations. Tanzania’s wildlife-filled plains, pristine beaches, and welcoming locals create an immersive and awe-inspiring experience for travelers seeking an authentic African safari.
Tanzania’s climate varies due to its size, but the best time to visit is during the dry season from June to October when wildlife gathers around water sources, providing superb game viewing opportunities in Serengeti (Especially the Grumeti) and Ngorongoro Crater. This period also aligns with the Great Wildebeest Migration, an iconic event that occurs in Serengeti around July to September. For those interested in trekking Mount Kilimanjaro, January to February and September are favorable months.
