Weather in Tanzania and Zanzibar


Hello everyone.

I am looking to plan to visit Tanzania and Zanzibar for wildlife safari and the beaches in the first week of April 2021 for around 10 days.I have been told that it will be peak rainy season and it is not the best time.

Can you please guide me as to what kind of weather can I expect in April and will it be a good time to visit the Serengeti and Zanzibar?

Thank you.

  1. Hello!

    April is rain season in tanzania, but you can still do and enjoy your trip but just keep in mind that you are doing it in rain season and when you see some of the time its raining, then your are not surprised. April is one of our rain month but honestly as am typing we are all loosing control, nobody can predict how much it will rain in April.

    Who knows, you might experience short time rains or serious raining, though it is normally rain and stop so you can still enjoy some game drives. If you are flexible with time, I would suggest you travel from 10th May whereby it starts to dry and also you can still win the low season rates too.

    If time is an issue, go ahead with your plans in April, am sure you will be still enjoying the trip.
