An overview of the climate of Tanzania< /h2>
Tanzania is worth your attention, if only because here you can combine swimming in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and participate in the most real African safari. Do you know that if you have the desire, physical fitness and about $ 2,000 in your pocket, you will have the opportunity to participate in climbing Mount Kilimanjaro? It remains to figure out when it is better to fly to Tanzania to rest for all these purposes.
Tanzania has a subequatorial climate. Translated into ordinary language, this means that the temperature here is the same all year round. Closer to the ocean, the thermometer readings do not fall below 25 ° C, on average the temperature fluctuates in the range of 20 & ndash; 35 ° C. On the coast, the atmosphere is humid and hot, on the mainland of the state dry air prevails.
In the north, east and west, there are 2 dry and 2 rainy seasons. There is only one rainy season in the south — this is the period from November to April.
In different parts of the country, these periods are felt differently. The warmest months are February and March, when the temperature is around 35 °C. The coolest, as far as possible, near the equator, — July and August.
The short rainy season falls between October and November. At the end of the year, the so-called “mango” it rains every day. However, short rains will not interfere with you. At this time, you can also organize a busy vacation: swim in the ocean, go diving and other types of water activities, go on excursions to national reserves.
The long rainy season reigns throughout the spring, from March to May. Moreover, in February and March, the rains erode the soil so much that it is impossible to drive. Therefore, the tourist life in the country freezes. The hunting season is also closed from April 1 to June 30, you can not go on a safari during this period.
After the monsoons, from early summer to mid-autumn, the dry season lasts 5-7 months. At this time of the year, the country is hot, bright and sunny, with little rainfall. Perhaps the best time to fly with a child to Tanzania.
If you decide to conquer Mount Kilimanjaro, this event is also better to plan for the periods from August to October and from January to March.
The second dry season does not last long, only 2 months — January and February. This is a great time in sunny Tanzania, and only high prices in hotels and the cost of tours overshadow it.
