When to go for solo Tanzania safaris

You can go for solo Tanzania safaris any time of the year, with the best time being the dry season when wild game viewing is more rewarding as they can easily be seen in almost one place, at the few waterholes still with water in the dry season as many animals in the park congregate to have a drink, with predators like lions and hyenas hunting down their prey unsuspectingly quenching their thirst and having a dip in the cool waters. The dry season is also a great time for a Tanzania safari traveller to visit as you shall be in the company of a number of other travellers touring Tanzania, and not be literally the only one during the wet season which has way fewer tourists in the parks and lodges. Irrespective of the season however, you are guaranteed of great animal views because all the animals in the various parks and game reserves of Tanzania are residents, meaning they can be seen anytime of the year.
