When is the best time to go on the Tanzania safari?

Tanzania Safari Holidays are good all-year-round activities. Because of such proximity to the equator, Tanzania undergoes two distinct dry and wet seasons. But the best time depends on the type of Tanzania Safari Activity you choose. However, the dry season of June to October is considered to be the best time to go on the Tanzania Safari.

When is the best time to see the great wildebeest migration in Tanzania?

During the period between December and March, the large herds forming the Serengeti Migration congregate in large groups in an area around Lake Ndutu in the Ngorongoro Conservation area bordering the southern parts of Serengeti National Park. This is the perfect time to come and see the wildebeest calving and all the predators lurking around for some easy food. They start to move in March first towards the Central Serengeti area before heading to Western Corridor late in May or early June before moving further on heading to the North Serengeti area in July. This is also another great time to come and see the Migration due to the interaction of the big number of migrating and resident wildlife plus the expected river crossing sightings which are phenomenal to watch. They will then be expected to cross the Mara River into Kenya and stay there till October before starting migrating back to South Serengeti to be there in December again.
