Other FAQs:

Q: Is Tanzania safe?

A: Most tourist holidays in Tanzania are trouble-free, however the country does often have violent crimes take place, with reports of British nationals being victims of muggings, especially in Dar es Salaam. Please take precautions such as only using licensed taxis, walking far from the road in public, avoiding carrying valuables, and generally being vigilant at all times.  

Q: What is the best time for safari in Tanzania?

A: Tanzania is famed for being the site of the Great Migration – a once-in-a-lifetime safari experience that is best witnessed between July and September. However, because of this popular event, there could be crowds. If you’d prefer a quieter wildlife viewing experience, visit between November and March; this is the rainy season which makes the country’s landscapes beautiful and green and offers prime bird-watching conditions, and you’ll also still be likely to witness the herds of the Great Migration.  

Top Things to do in Tanzania

Other awesome things to do in Zanzibar include exploring local spice plantations, visiting some of the best beaches in Zanzibar including Jambiani Beach and Nungwi Beach, and admiring nature at its finest at the Jozani Forest. 

Tanzania Weather 

Tanzania is blessed with a year-round pleasant climate with plenty of warm sunshine to enjoy. The best time to visit Tanzania, however, is between June and October, as the weather is not too hot but mild enough to enjoy the outdoors, and rainfall is at a minimum. There is a higher chance of rainfall in between the months of March-May and November-December.
