SEASON

JANUARY - MARCH: SECRET SEASON
We love this time of the year in Tanzania. Between the short rains in November and the long rains in April/May, it is the warmest time of the year with beautiful days. This was traditionally the high season before the 'migration fixation' and now offers great value and wonderful weather. The wildebeest are in the southern parts of the Serengeti to give birth to their young and Lake Manyara is full of flamingoes.

APRIL - JUNE: RAINY SEASON
Too often travellers want a guarantee of no rain! But for those who are not afraid of a few showers, this is a lovely time to travel. Please note that many camps are closed during April and May.
Little Chem Chem is closed 1 April - 30 May | Chem Chem Lodge is closed 1 April - 30 May

JULY - SEPTEMBER: PEAK SAFARI SEASON
We are aware this time of the year fits in with many annual holidays, especially families with school children, and it combines perfectly with a wonderful time to be on safari. Days are lovely and warm with cooler nights and normally very little rain. This makes for our peak safari season and therefore we do suggest making your bookings well in advance. Safaris in private concessions such as Mwiba and Chem Chem are highly sought after as other areas become overcrowded.

OCTOBER - DECEMBER: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
One of our best seasons to visit Tanzania and it is the perfect time for travellers who are not bound by school holidays. These are wonderful months and can be getting hot and dry before the November short rains.
