Best time to visit Tanzania

The best months for a Tanzania safari are from June to October, June and July for the wildebeest migration and January to February for calving season. In terms of the islandlife at Zanzibar then February is the hottest month when temperature rises to 28°C and July being the coldest when temperatures drop to around 24 °C. Pretty.

Zimbabwe’s Wildlife and National Parks

The Serengeti hosts the second largest terrestrial mammal migration in the world, which is why it has secured a spot in the list of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa, and as one of the ten natural travel wonders of the world.
The Serengeti is also renowned for its large lion population and is one of the best places to observe prides in their natural environment. Approximately 70 large mammal and 500 bird species are found there. Each year around the same time, the circular great wildebeest migration begins in the Ngorongoro Conservation area of southern Serengeti in Tanzania and loops in a clockwise direction through the Serengeti National Park and north towards the Masai Mara reserve in Kenya.

Tanzania travel tips
Language

The official language of Tanzania is Swahili, though it is a multilingual nation, with many natives speaking English.

Currency

The official currency of Tanzania is the Tanzanian shilling (TZS). 1 USD is equivalent to 2299 TZS. Credit Cards & ATMs: Credit cards (mainly Visa) are widely accepted in Tanzania. You’ll be able to use your card at park entrances, upscale hotels, and some tour operators. If you’re looking to book something with a credit card, call in advance to make sure it is accepted. If you need some money, ATMs are widespread in major towns and are open 24-hours a day. If you’re in remote spots, an ATM will be harder to find so be sure to get cash before you head out.

Plugs

In Tanzania, the plugs are type D and G, the standard voltage is 230 V, and the standard frequency is 50 Hz. I recommend buying a universal adapter (make sure it has surge protection) and using a converter for hairdryers and hot tools.

Safety

Tanzania is an overall safe country to visit, especially if your visit mainly consists of an organized safari/tour. Almost a million tourists visit the country every year without any issues.
