The East African country of Tanzania is known for its beautiful and abundant wildlife so it is no wonder that it is a prime place to take a safari trip. Among the animals that can be seen on a safari in this country are wildebeests, giraffes, gazelles, elephants, lions, wild dogs, and rhinoceros. Even though the country is beautiful year round, there are definitely some better times of year to take a tanzania safari. And the time of year to go on a safari in this country will really depend on what one would like to see on their once in a lifetime adventure.
Heading to Tanzania in the months from June to November provides a great chance to see the cheetahs and the lions. Since it rains a good amount of the month of April and May, the flowers will be blooming and abundant during these months of the year when going for a visit. And most of the animals will be available for viewing pleasure on a safari during these months of the year in Tanzania!
Probably the least recommended time to visit Tanzania for a safari is during April and May. April and May are the rainiest times of the year in this country and that means the animals don’t have to travel far to get their water to live on. In addition since the water is so abundant, some of the wildlife parks are closed during these months of the year.
November to March is the prime time for a Tanzania safari, especially for bird lovers. Tanzania has over 1,000 species of birds and bird watchers flock to the country during these months to catch sight of them. And for people who would like to make a trip to Mt. Kilimanjaro, it’s the best time of year to visit.
