Lovely location outside of the hustle and bustle of Arusha and Moshi. Staff was really welcoming and rooms were lovely. The pizza oven offers comfort food and carb loading for climbers.

A very comfortable Inn in a lovely setting. Unfortunately we arrived late in the evening and left early in the morning so we didn't have any time to enjoy the property fully.

A haven of cool verdant peacefulness after the excitement, rigors and dry dustiness of safari in the dry season. The rooms are superb, with large canopied beds and beamed ceilings, plus good hot showers. The staff are friendly and... Read More

When is the best time to go on a safari holiday in Tanzania?
There are advantages throughout the year, depending on what you’d like to do and see as the climate varies between the national parks and reserves in the north and south of the country.

The Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park in the north and Ruaha National Park are all relatively high above sea level, so make sure you pack for cool mornings and evenings, with temperatures on the Crater rim dropping very low in the winter months. Selous Game Reserve and the coast are warmer throughout the year.

January to March
While the northern hemisphere has its winter Tanzania is basking in the hot sunny days that accompany East Africa’s summer months. Wildlife viewing is good in these months with the wildebeest relatively static in the south of the Serengeti in their calving grounds. 

Temperatures on the coast between January and March are perfect for a beach holiday.

April and May
As these are the months when the ‘long rains’ traditionally come to Tanzania, visitor numbers drop dramatically. Travel by road can be difficult and animals can be harder to find as their access to water improves, but lower prices, lush flora, and few other people on safari in the national parks and reserves, can mean excellent game viewing. 

June to October
These months are Tanzania’s high season and wildlife viewing is thought to be at its best. Areas dry up and animals are more concentrated around the water that is available, with the wildebeest migration travelling through the northern reaches of the Serengeti and into Kenya’s Masai Mara. The winter months do mean that leaves drop from trees while shrubs and grass die, but days are sunny and hot with pleasantly cool nights.

On the coast the weather gets warmer during these months with July onwards being a high season for holidays to Tanzania’s beaches. 

November
A low season with low prices to encourage visitors, November can be an excellent time for both safari and beach. There can be rain, but if it comes it tends to be in short sharp showers.

December
Tanzania is in high demand for safari and beach holidays over Christmas and New Year since wildlife viewing is good throughout the country and the temperatures on the coast are perfect for a beach holiday.
