when to visit tarangire

The migrant wildlife of Tarangire National Park gathers around the swamps of the Tarangire Valley during the dry season (from June to October), making it the Best Time To Visit Tarangire. In the wet season (from November to May) most of the wildlife moves to other regions outside the park, so wildlife viewing is less productive. Although one major advantage is exemplary birdwatching in the wet season.

when to visit tarangire information

Tarangire National Park experiences a dry season from the months of June to October. If the question is on your mind about When To Go To Tarangire, then you can’t go wrong by picking this period. The weather is sunny and cool, making safaris a pleasant adventure.

The short rains in Tarangire National Park fall during the months of November and December. There are occasional rain pours in the afternoon and evenings, but they won’t interfere with your Tanzania Game Drives in the park.

The short dry season (in January and February) is also considered the Best Time to Visit Tarangire. Tarangire wildlife viewing experience is still some of the best and many animals gather around different water sources because of the lack of water around the park.

The period of long rains in the park occurs from the middle of March to the end of May, and sometimes still sprinkles in early March and June. And, this is a great time for Tanzania Photographic Safaris as the surroundings turn a vibrant green. Though, some antelopes and herbivores migrate out of the park during this time.

The dry season (from June to October) creates the perfect conditions for wildlife viewing and is widely regarded as the Best Time to Visit Tarangire. These months have thinner vegetation that makes spotting animals more convenient. Also, several herds of animals gather around the Tarangire River, creating opportunities for some great photographic shots.

The wet season (from November to May) marks the beginning of the long and short rains. The landscapes of the park are reincarnated during this period and are a magical sight to behold.

If you want some splendid birdwatching during Tanzania Safari Holidays, then the wet season is the Best Time of Year to Visit Tarangire. The park is home to more than 500 species of sedentary and migratory birds so avid birdwatchers simply need a pair of binoculars to explore. Another added advantage during this season is the lower costs plus fewer crowds. Thus, value for money plus exclusivity is guaranteed.
