Although it is truly not an exaggeration to say that wildlife viewing in Tanzania is great year-round, if it is The Great Migration you want, then we suggest going in June or July. And if you wish to witness the birthing of the wildebeest, then late January to March are your best bets.
Dancing Zebra focuses its safaris on Tanzania because Tanzania offers the best and most consistent wildlife viewing opportunities year-round. The dry season (June to October) is generally considered the best time overall for game viewing. However, even the wet season in Tanzania (November to May) has an amazing amount to offer in terms of wildlife viewing. April and May are probably the least optimal months to go since many camps close during the long rains. However, there are still enough places open for us to put together a magnificent itinerary for you if those months are your only option. And, since it is the low season, you will enjoy the benefits of a less crowded and less expensive journey!!
Yes. Check with your airline regarding whether you need to obtain your visa prior to departure, but usually, you can simply purchase your visa in the customs area of the airport upon arrival to Tanzania. The cost for US Citizens is $100 USD for multiple entry for one year. It’s best to have the exact amount in USD available for the number of members of your party.
