Meals Aloft
Tanzania is located close to the Equator. The temperature, therefore, does not vary too much. During our summer months – their winter (June through August) it is about 10 degrees cooler, but days will be warm and can reach the 80’s and evenings can be cool and can drop to the 40’s in the higher elevations. Most programs include some high elevation spots – the rim of the crater is at 7,500 feet. The rainy season is in April/May (long rains) and November (short rains). However, it does not rain every day, or all day, and rainstorms are quickly followed by brilliant sunshine which makes for incredible photographic opportunities. Wildlife viewing is good year-round, however the migration of zebra and wildebeest follow this cycle:

  • January-March – southern sector of the Serengeti and the animals are massing and giving birth to their young
  • April-June – central Serengeti and the animals begin to move
  • July – western corridor of the Serengeti and on the move towards Kenya
  • August-October – northern Serengeti and mostly into Maasai Mara in Kenya
  • November-December – returning back to the Serengeti and making their way to the southern sector
