Tanzania & Zanzibar Weather; When To Go

Tanzania and Zanzibar is a great destination for most of the year.  The rainy months of April and May are are worth avoiding.  Zanzibar follows a similar pattern to the mainland Tanzania 
The wildlife, however, doesn't leave the country, so if a safari is your priority then it can be a great time to travel just off-season - the animal viewing is just as good, there are far fewer tourists around and there are some excellent special offers from the camps. However it's vital to choose your camp carefully for your specific travel dates in order to optimise your wildlife viewing.

So it is possible to travel to Tanzania and Zanzibar from June to March...Our safari experts can advise you on where is best to travel in Tanzania at different times of the year. It is worth looking at the 'green season' special offers which can offer excellent value for money.

We don't just know Tanzania!
