Safari Holiday Activities in Tanzania With Best time to visit and enjoy them

With the unrivaled experiences in Tanzania, just know that there is more you can do, engage and experience. You can combine these experiences and do them once, or you can plan and schedule them on different dates of the year for your convenience.

  1. Mt. Kilimanjaro Hiking and Summitting:- To summit the highest peak in Africa, Mt. Kilimanjaro, you will need a minimum of 7 days, for a comfortable hike. The best time to hike this mountain is any time of the year. But again, your budget and other preferences matter. If you are on a budget and just need to climb the mountain, you can visit between March and July. If you will combine it with a Safari, the best would be from Jan to March and July to October.
  2. Coffee Farm Tours in Karatu:- Are you a farm and coffee fanatic? A tour to Karatu coffee farms would do you justice. But when is the best time to visit? Between October and February every year, farmers in Karatu Tanzania prepare to harvest coffee. This would be the best time to visit and experience the harvesting process and make coffee from the farm.
  3. Wildebeest Migration and Crossings:- A phenomenal event that happens between the greatest ecosystems in Africa, the Serengeti National Park, and Masai Mara National Reserve. You can experience this world wonder throughout the year, but the most fascinating and most wanted sightings are during the months of Jan to march, during their calving season, and the months of June to October, during the river crossings in Northern Serengeti and in Masai Mara.
  4. Spend with the Hadzabe Tribe:- One of the indigenous communities and tribes in Tanzania, the Hadzabe. They practise the best traditional activities such as hunting and gathering. They are the only community in Tanzania allowed hunting certain types of wildlife species such as the hare. They are located around Lake Eyasi and you can visit them any time of the year.
