The climate continues to be dry and warm and the pleasant temperatures enhance your experience; although wildebeest and zebra are likely to have moved on to Kenya during this time, other animals and predators will still be present in Tanzania and the parks remain relatively quiet.

Landscapes become arid waterholes start to dwindle, foliage becomes sparse which makes game viewing even easier than in previous months and many of the plains’ grasses will have been grazed down by herds of buffalo and antelope over the summer.

If you want a variety of activities while on safari, head to Selous and Ruaha in August which offer combinations of walking and boating safaris as well as day and night game drives. You can enjoy snorkeling and sunbathing on the picturesque idyllic coastal destination of Zanzibar with bright blue skies and warm white sands.
