Tanzania is great to visit any time of year., Most people avoid the rainy months of April, May, and November. Some people like to go during peak migration season.,

The migration in East Africa is world-renowned. Millions of wildebeests participate in the migration through Tanzania and Kenya. Hundreds of thousands of zebra join them. Although lions and other carnivores do not migrate with the grazing animals, they feast on them when their paths cross.

The best time to see the migration in Tanzania is often January-March and June-August. In the Kenya, it is often best September-October. These are also the most popular times to go, so you will need to book well in advance. You will see an abundance of wildlife all year round.

Lodges and tented camps serve breakfast and dinner, typically buffet-style., Lunches are often a box lunch eaten while on your game drive.

We use 4 or 6 passenger 4-wheel-drive Land Cruisers, all with viewing roofs for the safaris.

They are licensed, trained, friendly, and have years of experience!

You can buy any drinks along your way to the safari. There will be mini-markets in town.
