Which month is the best to visit Tanzanian Game & Zanzibar

Thank you so much for your info...you response was SO helpful regarding the game in Tanzania.

If you were to pick a month to spend 7 days viewing game and 5 days sitting on the beach...and snorkeling which would it be?

Aloha and Mahalo,

Hi

Jan is migration time in the Serengeti and if lucky you might catch the calving of the wilderbeest.

Followed up by Zanzibar :-)

having done 23 days in august '06, we encountered absolutely perfect weather in northern circuit, selous and ended gloriuosly in Zanzibar, so i can recommend August for its crispness, 70s days and 50s/60s nights and then 80s/90s in zanzibar, low humidity and NO BUGS, ie. mosquitos, tse tses which really amazed us. i would think july and september might be near the same. good luck

You are correct, except for September the migration will most likely be back in the Mara.
