December in Tanzania means occasional light rains with thunderstorms, but they are short-lived, and temperatures gradually rise as the days go by.
It’s an ideal month to take a break and spend a few days in the magnificent Tanzanian parks, especially during the Christmas season to escape the cold winter temperatures and fully enjoy the holidays with ideal temperatures.
Why is it ideal to travel to Tanzania in December? Let’s find out together!
VAST HERDS OF UNGULATES
During this month, the vegetation is as lush as always during the wet seasons, and the herds of ungulates of the Great Migration in the Serengeti are vast in the Ndutu and Masek lake areas, south of the park. Thousands of zebras and wildebeest as far as the eye can see. An extraordinary panorama and spectacle.
This is just one of the many reasons why we recommend visiting Tanzania in December. Let’s discover the others.Back to top
DECEMBER IN TANZANIA: ACCOMPANIED BY PREDATORS
And with the herds naturally come the predators, hungrily following their every move, alert and wary, waiting for the right moment to strike. The tall grasses provide better cover, allowing them to study the best time to attack.
During Jeep tours, you might witness such moments, which, in our opinion, are some of the most unforgettable moments of the trip.

THE WORLD’S FASTEST FELINES
In the Serengeti, all the big cats are present, and the southern plains are teeming with cheetahs, finding their ideal territory, flat, where they can easily chase their prey at the extraordinary speeds for which they are famous.
Regarding safaris, all parks are lush, the fauna always amazing, and the rains remove some dust from the paths and tracks.
But… when we talk about holidays, we can’t forget the sea and relaxation, right?Back to top
PLANNING AND BOOKING: ISLANDS, SEA, AND RELAXATION
It’s high season, especially in the latter part of the month, during the Christmas period, with planning and international flight bookings to be made well in advance.
The first part of the month is less problematic in this sense, with easier accommodation availability and the same seasonal characteristics as the rest of the month.
The islands, moreover, are wonderful in December, with warm temperatures and dream beaches. Zanzibar offers a myriad of opportunities to relax on fine white sandy beaches, take various excursions, and engage in excellent marine activities.
In Mafia, it’s the season when you can swim with whale sharks, dive into some of the most beautiful seabeds on the entire eastern African coast, and visit the other small islands of the archipelago, where nature and culture blend, and the territory is an integral part of daily life.Back to top
