When is the best time to travel to Tanzania? This is a good question, and like most good questions, it’s difficult to answer, especially since different parts of Tanzania offer different attractions at different times of the year. There really isn’t a right or wrong time to visit this popular country, but as a general rule, the dry season (late June to October) is the most popular time for a full safari in Tanzania.

During this dry season, animals congregate near water sources, getting close to predators and prey and allowing for exciting views of game. As a byproduct of water scarcity, vegetation thins, improving wildlife visibility. However, one important thing to keep in mind is the overcrowding that can occur on some reservations during these favorable times. If you want to avoid other tourists, you should visit Tanzania during the green season, usually from March to May, or even during the short dry season from late December to February.
