Best Time to visit Serengeti National Park
April-September The early and late months in Serengeti’s dry season offer ample opportunities to spot big five animals. Limited water and vegetation result in fewer viewing obstructions, and animals will typically congregate around what little water can be found in the park.

The season’s middle months are also great for game viewing, as long as the area does not have an uncharacteristically dry year. Rain showers are few and far between, so plan on leaving your umbrella at home. Mosquitoes won’t be as much of a nuisance during the day, but travelers should still wear insect repellent with DEET as a precaution.

October-March As its name implies, Serengeti’s rainy season is filled with subtropical rainstorms. Though the park’s landscape will be beautiful to photograph at this time, more foliage and poor visibility from the rain will make it harder to see animals. Plus, mosquitoes are more prevalent during wet periods, and many safari vehicles are open to the elements, so bush walks and game drives can be a bit uncomfortable in the rain.
