East Africa is equatorial so the climate is fairly constant and it is a year-round destination. Tanzania has a light rain season from November to March. This period is known as the ‘short rains’, often no more than a quick downpour each day, followed by clear sunshine.
From December to March the weather becomes increasingly warmer with the ‘long rains’ occurring between April and May.
Your safari suitcase, packed properly, will ensure that you have everything you need for the ultimate African bush experience.

Ample indoor and outdoor lounging, with uninterrupted views, provide relaxing spaces for you to truly immerse yourself in one of Africa’s most beautiful locations.
And especially for the kids!
