Tanzania has a big advantage: it can be visited all year round.


Tanzania has roughly two distinct climatic zones: the interior, with the highlands (above 1500 m) undergoing a moderate tropical climate, and the coast, flat, humid equatorial climate.


The higher you go, the higher the temperature decreases. As you go down (to the Indian Ocean) and the hotter it gets (sometimes very hot).

Les saisons Seasons

- The dry season from May to October. Then the warmest months are December to February. Sun, blue sky, dry landscapes, thirsty animals.

- The rainy season: the "long rains" from mid-March to early May, but most of the rainfall is concentrated in April (although everything is relative, given the size of the country). Evenings can be cool or cold. On the rim of the Ngorongoro crater, it can get really chilly at night, and then the thermometer may drop below 10 ° C.

The "short rains" lasts from November to mid-December. During this period, it does not rain all day, only at certain times, and it is not unpleasant: animals are more and more rare visitors. Photographers like wet periods because of the exceptional brightness. Savannah, huge and yellow, is re-gilded by the light after the storm, under skies gray charcoal.


Advantage of this low season travel prices and services on site are lower than in high season.
