When To Go
Most of Tanzania is close to the equator and does not have seasons although it is cooler June to August. The variations in altitude and terrain can create significant contrasts in climate so important to get timing right. Long and heavier rains in April and May with a shorter wet season in November. Significantly hotter on the coast.
Tanzania has the full tapestry. Outstanding, vast and varied national and private game parks, the magnificent Mount Kilimanjaro with its special challenge, beautiful lakes, dense tropical forests and stunning beaches. Combined with a highly diverse culture, the country is a superb destination.
