Tanzania is one of the best safari destinations in the world. The Serengeti boasts the highest density of wildlife anywhere in Africa and the Selous has the largest population of wild dogs. The northern circuit can get quite busy, but the southern parks are relatively unknown so it's possible to enjoy a more intimate safari experience. Peak season is July to October.

Month-by-month guide to traveling in Tanzania

Visiting Tanzania in June

This is the green season, bringing lush grasses and bush that can make spotting game more difficult. However, this is still a wonderful time to travel - particularly for bird watchers as parks are full of migratory birds; especially in the south. Migration should be in the Grumeti area of the Serengeti heading north.
