During June through to October the game viewing is excellent in Tanzania. The rains come in March to May with a second smaller rainy season in November and December when the game viewing isn’t as good. The Serengeti has excellent game viewing in September through to May and good game viewing in June through to August. In general Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro and Tarangire have excellent game viewing from July to March and then good game viewing in April to June. The best time for trekking Kilimanjaro is in the dry season from June to October when the rains have finished and, from late December to February. It’s important to note that even during dry season there is a chance of rain.
