Of course, as with all rainy seasons, lush green landscapes are abundant and flowers are blooming creating fantastic backdrops for your safari drives. This does make wildlife more difficult to spot though so you should have your binoculars at the ready and listen to your guide’s advice on where to look for the best viewing. Birdlife in Lake Manyara is a particular favourite of birdwatchers from March to May so this could be worth taking in to consideration. Plenty of water birds reside by the wetlands and streams and the park is also well known for numerous hornbills perching in the trees.
Overall, March can be a good, quiet time to visit Tanzania. The ground is fertile and the wildlife is abundant, but there is a high chance of rain and animals can be harder to spot.
