WHEN TO GO
With a year-round tropical climate, Tanzania is a country for all seasons. There’s excellent game viewing in most months – but, if you want to watch the migrating wildebeest head to the Serengeti between November and July. The rainy seasons are generally March to May and November when the landscape turns emerald green. In contrast, December to March are the warmest months and the landscape’s at its most arid.
If you can tear yourself away from Zanzibar’s pristine white beaches, take in the aromas of cinnamon, cloves and vanilla on a plantation spice tour
