September remains dry with low levels of humidity, daytime temperatures sit around 28°C and only really drop to 15°C in the evenings, so you will only need fairly lightweight layers on morning and evening game drives.

In September, it is possible to catch wildebeest and zebra crossing the river and Masai Mara as they head back south from Kenya, depending on water levels and rainfall.

The latter end of the dry season also sees the beginning of better sea visibility off the coast of Zanzibar making it an excellent time to snorkel and dive. The East Coast hosts the Bagamoyo Arts Festival in September celebrating with traditional dance, music, and performances as well as art exhibitions and workshops.
