Tanzania is located in the tropics so you can expect temperatures of 25 degrees C + throughout the year. It is possible to visit all year round, but the best time for weather is technically from July - September when the weather is dry and the wildlife is prominent. The only time of year we would not recommend if you are looking at beach time on your honeymoon is in April and May when Tanzania experiences its main rainy season... Not very good for an Indian Ocean honeymoon!
However, if you are just looking at safari, are adventerous and on a tight budget, then rainy season can be extraordinary. Lots of new life roam the parks, the bushes are luscious green and it is a beautiful time to be in Tanzania... And the prices of amazing lodges are seriously slashed. However, there is a reason the prices are less - the wildlife is more dispersed so less easy to spot, it is raining and chances of getting stuck in the mud are increased! But for some, Tanzania's green season is an adventure like no other.
Our preferred time of year is in the shoulder season months or October and June. Here, you get reduced rates from high season as well as some fantastic special offers. In some cases, you can get exactly the same high season experience a few days into shoulder season and pay half the price! The wildlife is fantastic in these months and the parks quieter as it is just outside school holidays.
Each time of year has pros and cons for each location, so the best option is to contact us and chat with one of our Tanzania experts.
