THE BEST TIME TO VISIT TANZANIA
The long dry season, which lasts from June to October, and the short one, which lasts from January to February, are said to offer the best chances to see wildlife in Tanzania. People typically stay away from the March through May long wet season. Late January to early February offer the best chances to witness the wildebeest calving and June and July offer the best chances to witness the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti.
