Due to the fact that Tanzania is situated below the equator-crossing, the coldest months happen throughout the summer of the northern hemisphere, and all through the year the weather continues to be pleasant as well as comfortable. From June up to October, the temperatures vary from approximately 10°C within the northern highlands to approximately 23°C around the coast. Around the plains as well as the lower-altitude wildlife reserves, normally temperatures between June and October are generally warm and moderate. Along the coast, these very month are among the very pleasant to travel, with warm, sunny weather most of the day as well as cool ocean breezes through the night.
Starting December up to March, generally the days are sunny and also hot with usually no clouds in the sky. The Temperatures are between the mid-twenties to low thirties all over the country whilst visitors travel to the parks as well as beaches to flee the dullness of the late winter in cooler places. Very clear sunny-days are the tradition within the northern highlands and also the mid-day heat is interfered by the golden-light in the late afternoon as well as the specifically striking sunsets. Within the game parks plus central plains, the stunning weather offers ideal opportunities for unconstrained game viewing, plus clear night-skies provide best possibilities for star-gazing in addition to romantic evenings within the bush. Along the shores of this Swahili Coast, the stunning Indian Ocean gets to its maximum temperatures and it is suitable for swimming any time in the night or day.
The equatorial climate of Tanzania provides 2 rain seasons every year: the masika – the long rains which fall from the middle of March to the finish of May; as well as the mvuli -the short rains, which come occasionally during November and in portions of December, and at times extend into the beginning January. Throughout the long rains, hefty showers are experienced during the early mornings although generally clear-up by mid-day, and the weather usually remains clear, bright and sunny until the late afternoon. When it comes to the evening, cloud formations assemble, breaking a little after dark and this rain usually continues all night. Throughout the short rains, there are light showers in the early mornings as well as late afternoons are interspersed with extends of clear weather plus stunning sunlight rays . The start of the two rainy seasons is notable by a alternation in the winds that historically, designated the time for buying and selling boats to begin trips across the vast Indian Ocean or come back to their local lands.
