Best Time for 4 Day Wildlife Safari in Tanzania

The Best Season for 4 4-day Wildlife Safari in Tanzania would be during the dry season, spanning from June to October. This period offers excellent wildlife viewing opportunities as animals gather around water sources, making them easier to spot. The weather is generally clear, with comfortable temperatures, creating perfect conditions for outdoor activities and photography.

However, it's essential to note that this is the peak tourist season, so accommodations may be pricier, and some areas might get crowded. If you prefer a quieter experience with more affordable options, the shoulder season (November to March) can also be an excellent choice, although it may come with occasional rains and lush landscapes.
