Climate

Just south of the equator, Tanzania is vast and its sheer range means that the climate varies considerably within it. Its climate is generally dived into three parts- the long rains, dry season and short rains.

 

The main rainy season,the 'long rains', run through March, April and May. During this time, it is not uncommon for it to rain quite heavily in the afternoons. These rains are heavier and more predictable in coastal areas. The humidity is high and daily temperatures reach the low-mid 30°s.

 

The long dry season lasts from June to October, when rainfall is infrequent, even on the islands. Temperatures vary with altitude and location, but this period is usually characterised by clear skies and sunny weather.

During November and December the second monsoon pays a visit. The 'short rains' are much lighter than the main rains and less reliable.

 

If it has rained during the short rains, it normally dries up for a few months for Tanzania's 'short dry season', before starting the long rains start up again in March.

Visas, Travel Documents and Special Permits
