Heavy rains tend to begin in March, bringing with them much more cloud coverage and even higher humidity. Although the rains are unlikely to last all day, they can be frequent and are likely to occur most days throughout the month. Some roads may become inaccessible during this time and some lodges and camps may even close down during this time, please ask our experts for their advice on the best parks to visit. Lush green landscapes are abundant and flowers are blooming, creating fantastic backdrops for your safari drives and photographs.

There is a high chance of rain in March and wildlife can be more difficult to spot. For birdwatchers, March can be a good, quiet time to visit Tanzania.

Plenty of water birds reside by the fertile wetlands and streams in Lake Manyara, which is also well known for numerous hornbills perching in the trees.
