When is the Best Time to Visit Tanzania?

Although you can go to Tanzania anytime of the year, the best time to visit Tanzania for wildlife is during the dry season. If you are planning to be a part of the Serengeti Migration, its advisable to do so during June and July. Best months for wildebeest calving is late January to February. Late June to October applies for all other game drives seeing as this is the time when most of the grass has thinned out making it easy to spot the animals and to navigate through the reserves.
