When to Go

Best time: December – March (green season); June – October (dry season)

  • February – March: The Great Migration is in the eastern and southern Serengeti around Ndutu and also Ngorongoro.  Newborn wildebeest can be seen as this is calving season.  This is also a great time to view predators.
  • June – September: The Migration reaches the western Serengeti where the wildebeest and zebra must cross the Grumeti River as they head north toward Kenya.  Predators are always close by.
  • During the dry season there is little to no rain and animals are easier to spot due to less dense vegetation.  There are also more tourists at this time, and prices are higher.
  • During the green/rainy season there are short afternoon showers and animals can be a bit harder to find but the green backdrops and dramatic skies make for beautiful contrasting colors and great photography.  There are also fewer visitors and lower prices.


Dry season (June – October):

  • Daytime temperatures are comfortable but vary due to altitude
  • Cooler temperatures at night (keep in mind that the seasons are reversed in the southern hemisphere)

Green/Rainy season (November –  December (short rains); March – May (sustained rains)

  • Daytime temperatures are hot but are cooler in higher altitude areas.
  • Always have a jacket as morning and nighttime temps are colder in higher altitude areas.
