This is still a good month to travel. Like January and February, this is a quiet month making it one of the best times to travel for people who like fewer tourist crowds. It is on this month when the wildebeest Calving season end and the herds slowly start to move toward western Serengeti through the Central part of the park.

The weather condition this month is still hot but there is a high chance of experiencing heavy rains, especially at the end of the month. This is the month that heavy rains. In summary, the best time to travel this month is at the beginning of the month, and Wildlife Safaris, Mountain trekking, and Zanzibar Vacations are some of the experiences that you should consider adding to your bucket list.

It is not advised to travel on this month unless you have something that needs you to go.

Late June is referred to as the best time to go on safari. This month may still receive a few drops but this depends on the lengths of the rain season which sometimes ends in late May. June is a winter season in most parts of the country and it is colder in the Northern and Southern Highlands of Tanzania.

The migration this month is almost on the western part of Serengeti, approaching the Grumeti river. At the beginning of June, the grass is still stalled making it difficult for wildlife sightings, but it is much better than in May and April.

June is the perfect month for Nature photographers, birdwatchers,s and wildebeest Migration experiences in western Serengeti. We advise you to plan your trip starting in late June so you can increase your chances of sighting more wild animals.

Short rains are expected to fall at the end of October and this month. This is a great time to take advantage of low season rates and is still a popular time to travel. The rains tend to be overnight, but there is a risk of rain during the day as well. Migrating herds are starting to travel south from Kenya, so crossings can be seen in the north of the Serengeti. November is the start of Tanzania’s Green Season. It offers superb birdwatching opportunities, with migratory birds arriving in their thousands.

December falls in the midst of the short rains so except some rain and wet weather. Tourist numbers are low for the first half of the month, but for two weeks over Christmas and New Year everything is choc-a-block, so it’s best to avoid the last-minute rush and book well in advance.

December is a great time for bird watchers as many migratory birds arrive. This is particularly good in southern parks such as Selous and Tarangire National Park in the north is a birdwatchers’ paradise. Look out for red-necked spurfowl, purple grenadier and cinnamon-breasted buntings to name just a few.

By now the migrant birds have arrived in full force, which makes for some superb birding opportunities. The wildebeest have returned to the short grass plains of the southern Serengeti to calve. With their more limited infrastructure, the wild parks of the southern safari circuit become more challenging during December and for the duration of the wet season.
