When is climate and weather best in Serengeti?
- During the dry season (June-October) visitors will experience perfect weather conditions with bright, blue skies. Dry season is usually the best time to visit Serengeti and Zanzibar for a beach safari or a Big Five safari.
- The rainy seasons are from March to May (the “long rains”) and from November to December (the “short rains”). Travellers might experience cloudy skies and some rain during the day (sometimes even a thunderstorm) but the wet seasons don’t mean all-day rain.
Pro tip: Travellers visiting Serengeti during the wet season might have a very pleasant time due to the fact that the park has fewer visitors and accommodations usually have lower prices.
