October weather and where to go
Temperatures rise again slightly in October making mornings and nights more comfortable. Tanzania is coming into spring throughout the month making it a lovely time to visit. Lake Tanganyika is at its warmest at this time of year and with Mahale still being fully accessible it is a great time to see the chimpanzees and get to know BigBird the pelican at Greystoke Mahale. The chart below shows the averages for the Serengeti throughout the month and the comparative average rainfall in Zanzibar. Although average rainfall has begun to rise in comparison to the earlier months of the dry season, it is still not up to the significant levels of November and December.
as long as you take a waterproof coat you should be alright during the few showers that may occur in October!
