The best time to do a safari in Tanzania is during the dry season, which falls between June and October. The animals tend to gather around water sources during this time, making it easier for visitors to spot them. Additionally, the vegetation is not as dense as it is during the rainy season, which makes it easier to see the wildlife. The weather during the dry season is also more pleasant. The weather is sunny and warm days, minimizing any disruptions to the safari activities due to rain or muddy roads. However, it is advisable to book your safari six months in advance to ensure availability and the best rates. This is because many visitors are coming to the northern circuit area for the Tanzania safari holiday. Dry season safari season is very famous and also termed as the high or peak season. 
From around mid-January to March the main spectacle is the visit to the southern Ngorongoro and Serengeti(the world’s richest natural grasslands WHY?  They support up to 4 million hoofed animals for a period of 4 to 5 months) to witness the wildebeest calving season. Over 400,000 calves are born annually, and a great chance to witness it and follow the predators in action. Also, new life coming in and taking “the circle of life’ our main advantage is being able to off-road and witness it all at very close encounters. In addition to safari seasons, the best time for safari is also fit for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. The main factor for the Kilimanjaro safari season is rain, so just avoid rain seasons. Now, get tips for best time to go for the Kilimanjaro trips. 
April and May are also regarded as a green seasons because there is a lot of rain. Vegetations flourish, and become dense as well, making it difficult for safari-goers to see wildlife animals. Safari vacations during April, and May may be good opportunities for some vacation seekers due to some unique benefits. First of all, the Tanzania safari package prices become low, whereby tourists can save up to 40%. Second, Landscape scenery is greenish and hence attractive to some photographers. This is a reason, why April, and May, are also known as low season because only a few travelers go for Tanzania safari in these months. 
Furthermore, we now, introduce the shoulder season months, when safari prices are more affordable than high season. In the months of March and November, the number of safari goers drops, hence safari lodges and camps drop room rates, to compete for visitors. We have discounted Tanzania safari packages, and budget lodge safari prices in the shoulder season. Browse here, and look at November, safari price offers.
