When to go to Tanzania + Zanzibar

Tanzania has a warm equatorial climate all year round.
 
The best time to visit Tanzania for game viewing is during the cooler and drier months from June to October. The 'short rains' fall from mid-November to mid-December, with the sun coming out again after short bursts of rain, so don’t let this stop you travelling then. December to March is again high season, although much hotter.
 
Wildebeest calving occurs around Ndutu in the southern Serengeti from mid-January to mid- March, after which the migration slowly moves northwards reaching the Grumeti River in June/July, before moving into the Masai Mara in Kenya in August, although the exact timing depends on the rains. In November the wildebeest migrate southwards once again.
 
Birding is best from November to March, as this is when the migrants visit.
 
The best time for diving is from October to March, when waters are at their clearest. November to March is the best time for deep sea fishing for marlin. Sept/Oct is also good for tuna & other species. Most boats do not operate in May and June (the end of the rainy season, when the sea is very rough).
 
The best months to climb Mount Kilimanjaro are January, February and September. You should summit as close to full moon as possible.
 
The 'long rains' fall during April and May, when heavy downpours can affect game viewing and make road travel difficult.
