Just about any time of year (see the information on climate in the About Tanzania section). However, the most popular seasons are mid December to mid March and July to mid September. This is because of the demand for Christmas and winter holidays and the summer school breaks. An increasing number of visitors are realising that June and October are ideal, benefiting from lower visitor numbers.WHEN AND WHERE CAN I SEE THE GREAT MIGRATION?
The millions of wildebeest and zebras are always somewhere, but they are not always in large herds and on the move. Their location is largely dependent on the weather, which can vary considerably from year to year. In general the herds assemble south of the Serengeti during January and February, the season in which they give birth to their young. Starting around March they begin moving north and west in search of fresh grazing through the Serengeti Park.
They can move in enormously long single file lines or in huge herds. The bulk of the animals reach the Maasai Mara in Kenya, where they tend to remain during July and August, before starting their return trek southward, back through the Serengeti in November.
If you are arranging an exclusive vehicle (custom) safari, then you are free to arrange whatever itinerary you choose, within logistical constraints. Rangers Safaris presents a small selection of proven itinerary favourites in this website. We can arrange any required itinerary subject to practical and logistical considerations and will be pleased to discuss and quote for your special requirements.
Coming to Africa Adventures provides luxury mobile camping. Both of these options are more expensive for groups less than four. Luxury mobile camping works out to be almost twice the price of regular lodge - based safaris. However, there is a popular option combining top lodges with permanent tented campsites in an exclusive vehicle safari which works out at a very competitive price.ARE SAFARIS SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN?
A safari is a wonderful trip for any child old enough to enjoy and appreciate the experience. On most safaris there are quite long trips on rough roads, and these cannot really be recommended for babies and very young children.
Children under 12 will benefit from reduced fares on scheduled airlines, and many lodges will provide an additional bed for a child sharing a room with parents at a reduced cost. Sopa Lodges all have large rooms with two double beds as standard. Some luxury small capacity tented camps do not allow children younger than 12 years old.

Kilimanjaro trekking Marangu Route
The Marangu route is one of the most popular routes to the summit of Kilimanjaro. This could partly be as a result of the fact that the Marangu is the least expensive route, but more so, perhaps the fact that it is possible to do the Marangu route in 5 days, thereby getting to the summit one day earlier.

This cultural experience is one of the most sensitive cultural encounters available in the world today. The essence of Hadzabe & Maasai culture can be summed up in one word: Harmony.
