The month of June in Tanzania marks the beginning of winter and the long dry season, even if temperatures are pleasant.
This month also marks the beginning of the high tourist season, without however the concentrations that are usually found in the following months, especially in August.
The parks live on past rains, but as the days pass, the grass becomes drier and the colors gradually change from green to beige. It is the ideal time to plan a safari and be fascinated by the beauty of the characteristics of each park.Back to top
The Great Migration in the Serengeti sees a passionate moment. First of all, the herds are in the Western Corridor and are about to face the first of the two most difficult moments of the entire journey, the crossing of the Grumeti River.
This crossing is very different from that of the Mara river to the north, where the banks can be high and the passage must be studied meticulously.
The Grumeti has low banks, so the characteristic of the passages is that of being able to see enormous herds standing still and waiting. When the number becomes too high and the space too narrow, then they begin to enter the water.
Naturally, the Grumeti is populated by ferocious crocodiles like the Mara river and this makes the crossings a heart-pounding experience.Back to top
LOVE AND MATING
June, however, is also the mating season for wildebeests, who mate in this area. It is possible to see males fighting, although more to show off than to hurt each other. The pregnancy will end between January and February, when around half a million puppies will be born in the southern plains.Back to top
SEA AND WATER SPORTS
In Zanzibar the climate is dry and sunny and particularly suitable for those who want to relax on the beaches or do water activities. Naturally, since we cannot control the climate according to our needs, some scattered rain may occur, but the great advantage of the month of June in Zanzibar is the low tourist concentration.
OPTIMAL SEASON: The Charm of June between Safari and Zanzibar
In short, planning a safari in the month of June with an extension to Zanzibar can prove to be an excellent choice and above all the opportunity for a splendid trip, with optimal temperatures and lower tourist concentration.
