BEST TIME TO VISIT UDZUNGWA FOR A SOUTHERN TANZANIA SAFARI

In addition to the AfricanMecca Safaris Tier rating, you should also consider the time of year that you plan your Udzungwa Mountains National Park safari, as weather patterns also influence the experience you will have during your visit. No matter what time of year you visit, though, you are sure to be enthralled with the biodiversity, lush green landscape and ancient cultures of the area (read more on where to stay in Udzungwa). The year-round temperature at the national park is pleasant, with the higher temperatures occurring around October to March and the coolest temperatures occurring around May to July. Depending on the month of travel, the average high temperature range from 77-86 F (25-30 C), but at times, it has also peaked close to 95 F (35 C) during the humid, short rain season. The average low temperature of about 69-74 F (17-23 C), but the temperatures have previously dropped to about 55 F (12 C).

Like other locations in Tanzania, Udzungwa Mountains Park has a rainy season and dry seasons. Most of the long rainfall occurs from March to May and the precipitation can make the roads and trails quite slippery. During the rainy season is also when you may see some of the many delightful butterflies that thrive within the park. Because of the effects of heavy rainfall on the woodland and highlands terrain, your activities may be impacted, though, it is recommended to plan any AfricanMecca wilderness vacation to Tanzania’s National Park during the dry season, which runs from the cooler June to the warmer October, and we consider this time of year to be the best. When you pack for your nature holidays in Africa, be sure to bring a variety of clothing to ensure your comfort during the day and in the evenings. You should bring a light jacket or sweater, comfortable shoes and hiking boots and rain gear, especially if you will be visiting during the rainy season. Also bring a hat to protect your eyes and face from the sun, as well as sunscreen, and don’t forget your swimming suit should you choose to swim in a lovely natural plunge pool of refreshing water underneath the Sanje waterfalls.
