FAQs for Tanzania in July

1. What are the typical temperatures during July in Tanzania? The temperatures around this time will range between 14°C / 57°F to 28°C / 82°F.

So it generally remains pleasant. Clothing items such as regular T-shirts, shirts, jeans, and trousers would be sufficient. However, the temperatures drop during night so you might require some warmer clothing like a fleece jacket or a pullover depending upon your tolerance.

2. Is July an ideal month for me? As a part of the Dry Season, July is one of the popular months during which tourists visit. The conditions will be dry, roads will be dusty, vegetation will be receding, and there will be fewer watering holes greatly improving the wildlife visibility. In addition, you will be able to enjoy almost every activity that you wish to. However, since July is a part of the peak season, accommodations and services will cost higher. Further, since a lot of schools and universities across the world close down during this period, the tourist influx increases and the parks are generally crowded at this time.

So, July is ideal for those who wish to have excellent wildlife visibility, dry roads, engage in multiple activities, and do not mind paying higher costs and dealing with crowds.

3. How do the reduced watering holes and receding vegetation impact wildlife visibility during July? Reduced watering holes compel animals to come out and look for the remaining water bodies. As a result, more animals collect in the same area. This ensures that you will be able to spot a higher number of animals during your drive. Similarly, as the vegetation dries out, there is not enough foliage behind which animals can hide. Hence, you will not have to spend a lot of time looking for animals, due to the reduced vegetation cover, the animals will automatically become visible to you.

4. I’m on a budget, but I wish to visit Tanzania in July. Is there a way for me to reduce trip costs? Yes, one of the best ways to reduce overall costs of the tour is going for a Group Safari instead of a Private Safari. In a Group Safari, you will be required to share your vehicle and guide services with other parties and the costs will be divided between all the tourists. Therefore, you would not be required to pay for the vehicle as much as you would have to in a Private Safari. To understand better how Group and Private Safaris differ, please check out our page here. Although, please note that a group safari is suitable for solo travellers and couples. If you’re a large party of about 5 to 6 people, the costs will apply per person per day, and the overall cost for an individual will come down automatically.

In addition, you can opt for accommodations or lodging services that charge less. There are mid range lodges, tented camps, and budget camps that suit the needs of those who are on a budget. To understand how the accommodations are classified, please check out our page here.

Similarly, you can also reduce costs by reducing the number of activities that you take part in. Activities such as walking safari, hot air balloon ride, night game drives, canoeing have a significant impact on the overall costs. So, by simply choosing to not engage in activities you will be able to save up.

5. I’m interested in Birding. Will I be able to spot any birds during my safari in July? Yes, while a lot of migratory birds leave, hundreds of species still stay back in the Northern region of Tanzania. You will come across birds such as Flamingoes, Ostriches, Kori Bustards, Turacos, Marabou Storks, Spoonbills, Herons, Francons, Vultures, Lilac Breasted Rollers, and so many more.

6. How far in advance should I book my safari if I wish to visit in July? July is a part of the peak season and lodges and camps seldom have free rooms during this month. Hence, we recommend booking at least 10 to 12 months in advance, especially if you’re a large party. However, people do make their bookings 4 to 6 months in advance as well and manage to get accommodations and flights of their choice.

7. Will I be able to watch the Wildebeest river crossing? Certainly, if you wish to view the famous wildebeest river crossing, you may choose an itinerary that includes staying in the Western corridor of Serengeti, and you will be driven to the banks of the river to try and catch the crossing. Your experienced guide will be collecting information with the help of other guides and park rangers inside Serengeti and find out the best spot for watching the river crossing during your tour. You should be able to catch the river crossing at least 3 to 4 times.
