Tanzania is  also a fantastic destination for bird lovers with a myriad of colourful species. The Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and Tarangire national parks are all within easy reach of Kilimanjaro Airport and can be combined into a fantastic safari lasting from just 2 days up to as long as you have.

When to go on safari

January to March
sun icon
A dry spell between the short and long rains and the very best time to see the wildebeest migration in the Southern Serengeti. Dry and excellent game viewing
April and May
rain icon
Typically the long rains begin at the end of March and carry on steadily until the end of May when warmer drier weather returns. Parks are quiet and the wildebeest are still in the South of the Serengeti Wet weather but excellent game viewing
June to October
sun icon
Afternoon temperatures are usually around 27°C/81°F and most days have a fine, clear sky and sunny weather. As the parks dry out the animals crowd towards water sources making Tarangire Park a great choice as well as Grumeti and Ngorongoro Hot, dry conditions
November and December
Mid and high season for Aconcagua mountaineering
An unpredictable period of about a month of rains occurs between late October and December. The rains will be unlikely to interfere with your safari and it is rare for it to rain continuously throughout the day. Another excellent time for game viewing
