June weather and where to go
On the whole June sees the start of the best season to visit all areas of Tanzania. The dry season begins and clear skies and sunshine perpetuate. Flora is still in bloom during this time too so you don’t have the dry, barren landscapes of the later months. This pleasant climate does mean however, that prices rise significantly too. The chart below shows the averages for the Serengeti throughout the month and the comparative average rainfall in Zanzibar
Wildebeest stop at Grumeti River to build up numbers before they attempt the river crossing in their thousands. Safety in numbers mean many traverse the crossing successfully, however, if you’re in the right place at the right time you may spot a crocodile attempting to take down a wildebeest that it has set its sights on.
June is probably the best time of year to visit the Serengeti as is has great game viewing all over the park, however, the best sights can be seen in the northernmost parts.
