Like many other travellers you are out to have the best experience on your vacation and great timing does the trick, so you now have this question in your mind “when is the best time to visit Tanzania?” The best time to visit is largely dependent on what you want to visit & how you want your visit to be. All this can be largely influenced by the weather on your time of visit Throughout the year you can visit Tanzania attractions but it is during the dry season (June to October) that is regarded by many as the best time to visit Tanzania

Why June to October is the best time to visit Tanzania?

  • -Secondly, animals are easier to spot as with water shortages the vegetation weakens thus improving visibility of animals who will be concentrated at water sources
  • -Furthermore, this period will cover the two highlights of the migration “The Grumeti river crossing” and “The Mara river crossing”
  • -Easy mobility, moving around is easier when it is dry unlike rainy season
  • -Moreover, it is the perfect time to hike The Kilimanjaro as it’s a favourable weather and more summit chances
  • -fewer mosquitoes unlike the rainy season which is favourable condition for mosquitoes
  • -easier to do group tours, group activities and greater parties
  • -lastly, there is plenty and more options of activities to do on the dry season
