Your tailor-made safari holiday to Tanzania

This summer season from December to March offers the visitor the chance to see Tanzania at its greenest, alive with young animals and migrant birds. In response to the summer rains starting in November the wildebeest and zebra herds will have started moving from Kenya down towards the short grass plains of the southern Serengeti. This is the calving season. You may be lucky enough to witness a birth and there's a high probability of witnessing a kill by one of the predators of the area, lions, cheetahs, leopards or hyenas.

There's generally a short dry period in January and February between the short rains of November and December and the long rains of March to May. The rain normally comes in afternoon tropical showers and shouldn't be a deterrent from visiting Tanzania during this rewarding, and reasonably priced time of year.

Also included in this itinerary is a visit to the famous Ngorongoro Crater which offers spectacular views and wonderful up-close sightings of Tanzania's abundant wildlife.
