December weather and where to go
The short rains may continue into December but are unlikely to last the whole month and vary again depending on where you visit. Please ask our specialists and they will be able to advise on the best places to visit during December. The chart below shows the averages for the Serengeti throughout the month and the comparative average rainfall in Zanzibar
Tanzania is very popular over Christmas and New Year so it is important to book well in advance to secure the parks and accommodation you want. This also means that lodges charge peak season prices and there will be numerous safari vehicles around when out on game drives.
Of course, our guides will try and put you in the right place at the right time but we cannot guarantee an intimate wildlife experience in certain parks when they are so busy.
