Shoulder season which runs from October till February gives a chance to have a great vacation in Tanzania for a reasonable price. This period is marked by a short rainy season as well as a short dry season, but this is only true for some areas of the country, so check the regional weather when choosing a time for your trip. The weather is hot and humid, especially from December till February. Light rains and cloudy weather are waiting for you from November till December. During the short dry season, you will mostly find high-season prices. February is also calving season, which is quite an interesting experience.
