When is the best time to visit Arusha National Park?


The best time to visit Arusha National Park is from June to October, during the dry season. It is easier to spot the wildlife - since they normally gather around the waterholes, rainfall is minimal, vegetation is not too thick and mosquitos levels are reduced. However, when you’re visiting make sure you carry warm clothes for the morning game drives, since the early mornings of June all through August are cold. From November to December and March through May - the rains transform the landscape as lush, green grasses emerge and this is also the best time to witness the migratory birds.
