WEATHER & CLIMATE OF TANZANIA
Tanzania is situated in East Africa. It lies South of Kenya and is characterised by a coastline, a sizable section of the Great Rift Valley, a handful of mountains and by a central plateau that levels out at about 1,500m.
While old hands will tell you that Tanzania can be visited at any time of the year, choosing when to travel will be dictated by climate, area and interest. Climate-wise, Tanzania has a tropical climate, an average daytime temperature of around 25°C, and receives an annual average of 892mm per year.
Finally, in terms of understanding the different areas of travel, Tanzania is best broken down into zones : the Northern, Western and Southern safari circuits, and the Coast, which in effect means the Zanzibar archipelago and one or two mainland spots.
The Tanzanian Northern Circuit proper stretches from the eastern shores of Lake Victoria to Arusha Maswa Game Reserve, lakes Eyasi and Manyara and by Tarangire National Park, it includes Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.
The South proper includes the South Coast, the Southern Coast, Rungwa and Selous game reserves, and the National Parks Mikimu, Ruaha and Udzungwa.
Climatically, the mainland Coast, the Zanzibar archipelago and Mafia Island are all influenced by the Kaskazi and Kuzi monsoons. The first of these, the Kaskazi blows in from the North-East during the months of November to March inclusive.
The Western safari Circuit takes place against the backdrop of Lake Tanganyika. It includes Mahale Mountains National Park, Gombe Stream National Park and Katavi National Park.
