What is the best time of the year for a safari in Tanzania?

The rainy season in Tanzania is from the end of March till June; some parts of the parks will be less accessible then. If you let us know when you've planned your trip, we will let you know the special details of that season.

What is the best time of the year to climb Mount Kilimanjaro or Mount Meru?

Kilimanjaro:

  • January-mid March: not too cold, mainly dry, not many climbers, a good time to climb

  • April- mid June: rainy season

  • June-August: dry and clear but the nights will be cold

  • August-October: peak season! Good weather and warmer than June/July

  • October-November: the weather will be more unstable and there will be less climbers

  • November-mid December: this is the small rainy season, not the best time to climb

  • Mid December-mid January: peak climbing season on Kilimanjaro with a good chance on rainfall and thick clouds in the lower regions. Not the best time to choose

 

Mount Meru:

The best time to climb Mount Meru is from June till February with occasional rains in November. The dry season is from July till March. December to February offer the best view of Kilimanjaro which can often be seen and most places in Arusha National Park.
