You will see a great deal of animals year round. Because the climate tends to be mostly dry through out the year, animals gather near and around watering holes and tend to stick together. During the rainy season, April to mid-May, the animals disperse because water is easy to find.
Facts on Tanzania

Shortly after independence, Tanganyika and Zanzibar merged to form the nation of Tanzania in 1964. One-party rule came to an end in 1995 with the first democratic elections held in the country since the 1970s. With an estimated population of 37,187,939, Tanzania continues to be one of the most peaceful nations in Africa. And it has done so by maintaining good relations between government officials in high and lower positions.

Although Kiswahili is the most spoken language in Tanzania, English is the official primary language of commerce, administration, and higher education. Kiswahili is the mother tongue of the Bantu people living in Zanzibar and nearby coastal Tanzania; although Kiswahili is Bantu in structure and origin, its vocabulary draws on a variety of sources, including Arabic and English, and it has become the most widely used in central and eastern Africa; the first language of most people is one of the local languages.

Tanzania Overview

Tanzania has the greatest wildlife experience in the world. Tanzania devotes 25% of its land to conservation and it has the highest concentration of animals anywhere in the world. On a typical safari in Tanzania you can expect to see the "Big 5" many times over. Much more than just seeing the big five and enjoying some scenery is the fact that you’ll be getting a lesson from our incredibly knowledgeable guides. Their ability to spot animals coupled with their keen knowledge of the game ranging from eating habits to migratory patterns truly makes this experience unique.
The Weather
The majority of our safaris take place in Northern Tanzania. The area is about 5,000 feet above sea level. Mount Kilimanjaro is due east of where most safaris take place. We're also inland from the coast so there's really not that much humidity. When it gets hot, it's usually a dry heat. As you can see by the average temperatures below, it's typically in and around the 80's.
