Tanzania is blessed with an exotic climate and two very specific seasons; the dry season and the wet season. Both take pride in flaunting their beauty and what they have to offer. Ranging from migration season to rich colors spread over the horizon, to mud baths and high animal count, each represents an unforgettable experience in their own right. Let’s look at 5 reasons why the wet season might be what you are looking for.
Vibrant colors against the green
The dry season harbors its spectacular landscape with animals camouflaged cleverly in the shades of umber and browns cascading across the land. With herbivores slowly striding through the dry grassland, it feels like the typical safari scene, but the experience turns tables during the wet season. Because who doesn’t love the refreshing shades of green densely packed with animals of all sizes and colors grazing, running, and hiding in it? The visual dream the game reserves leave imprinted in your mind forever during the wet season includes lush greenery chewed on lazily by some of the world’s most exotic creatures known to man. Some of the most spectacular times to visit the national parks are during the season that brings the animals together to drink, mate, and birth their adorable offspring close to the swelling rivers and tall savannah grass.
The dry season is usually when a lot of people visit Tanzania’s spectacular parks to enjoy the bright sun and drylands, meaning that during the wet season, there are fewer people you will see, and hence a greater experience with the wild. This allows you to connect with the wildlife better and have the experience to yourself over the vast green horizons.
Because most tourists book safaris during the dry season, prices are also usually much higher during that season. Save a few pennies with your safari during the wet season, and you can still enjoy an unforgettable safari in Tanzania. This, by the way, also goes for international travel and hotel bookings!
Birds and baby animals everywhere
The wet season is dedicated to the beautiful flock of birds reigning the African skies and spotting the green trees and shrubs. If you are a bird-fanatic, this season is made for you. If you are fascinated by baby animals, this is also your ideal season, as it’s the time most babies are born in the wilderness, like the wildebeest who calf during this season on the short grass plains of the Serengeti.
The Best Pictures
Needless to say, that the photos that are taken during the wet season are remarkable, with vigorous color, animal interaction, and exotic scenery. As a photographer, you are bound to be mesmerized by the vast possibilities you can capture with your camera during this season.
