May can be surprisingly dry, especially towards the end of the month, you may be fortunate enough to have numerous dry days. There is notably less dust as the ground remains damp, significantly fewer visitors, and possibly lower prices.

May is a great time to head to Moru Kopjes in the Serengeti as many wildebeest are passing through before heading north, but most wildlife has left Tarangire National Park.

Still, avoid Zanzibar at this time as it is possible for rain to pour every day for weeks on end.
