Best Time To Go
All Year Round
Tanzania is superb for families with the opportunity to witness the Great Migration in the Serengeti, and prolific game viewing, all year round. If you are able, we would recommend avoiding travel in April and May as it can be rainy during these months.
Ideal Length
From 10-14 days
Take time together to explore each location and the journeys in between. Whether privately guided by vehicle or scenically by air, you will want to soak it all in!
