Best Time to Do a Safari in Tanzania

Best-time-to-do-a-safari-in-tanzania

Most of people ask themselves when is the best time to do a Safari in Tanzania. My best answer would be, well it depends on what you are interested in doing in Tanzania. If you want to see the wildebeest migration, Which most travelers are dying to experience this Tanzania’s biggest attraction is the natural movement of mega-herds – wildebeest, zebra and gazelle – following the summer rains and sweet grasses in an annual pilgrimage. Depending on when your Tanzania Safari takes place, you may witness the life-and-death struggles of the Mara River crossings or dramatic encounters with Africa’s top predators on the open plains : In this article i will only explain in details the best  time to see the wildebeest migration. 

The short October/November and March/April rainy seasons notwithstanding, the Serengeti’s temperate and mostly dry climate plus abundant resident wildlife makes for a great game viewing experience all year round – the question of exactly when to go to the Serengeti really revolves around whether you want to see the wildebeest migration or just wildlife.

If so, then the best time to visit the Serengeti is Between October and July before the wildebeest return to Kenya’s Masai Mara around August. Note however that the migration is a fluid affair: not only is its precise timing subject to each year’s rainfall pattern but the herds move around the Serengeti depending on the time of year.

This is an interesting story about the wildebeest…. some of you will be wondering where do clients sleep during the safari in Serengeti or even where is this Serengeti National Park ? Well this link talks more about the Serengeti National park information, what to do where to sleep and more

With their prominent size, long trunks, and tusks you wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of, elephants are truly magnificent creatures. But how much do you actually know about them? Read on to find out some little-known facts about these amazing animals!

1. They’re Big. Really Big.

facts-about-elephantsElephants are the largest land animals in the world. African elephants can grow from 8.2- 13 feet, and weigh between 5,000 and 14,000 lbs. The largest elephant ever recorded was a male African elephant at San Diego Zoo. He was 13 feet tall from feet to shoulders, and weight 24,000 lbs! Their brains are 3 or 4 times the size of a human brain and their skin is an inch thick. The huge size of elephants means that they are the only mammals who can’t jump.

2. They Have The Longest Pregnancies

Elephants can reproduce from around 13-20 years old, but they rarely have more than 4 children in a lifetime. Male elephants are called bulls, female elephants are called cows, and the children are called calves. Elephants have the longest pregnancies of any animal in the world- around 22 months! When the calf is born, it will be around 3 feet tall and weight around 200lbs. Elephants also spend the longest time feeding from their mothers; they are not ready to be weaned until they are 2-3 years old.

3. Their Tusks Are Incredibly Useful…

Elephants’ tusks act as their incisor teeth, however they also have other uses. They can be used for defense, lifting, digging for water, digging for roots in the ground, and pulling bark of trees to heat. Like humans, who can be left- or right-handed, elephants also prefer to use one tusk over the other.

4. …And So Are Their Trunks!

An elephant’s trunk can grow up to 6.5 feet long, and is thought by some scientists to contain 100,000 muscles! In addition to lifting food and drinking water, elephant trunks can sense the size, shape, and temperature of an object. Elephants’ trunks also have another use. Elephants can swim, and in deep water they use their trunk to breathe, similar to snorkels used by humans.

5. They Are Social And Sensitive Creatures

Elephants are highly intelligent animals, and can express compassion, self-awareness, and grief. Elephants often play together and sometimes show affection through a “hug”- wrapping their trunks together. When a friend has been away for some time returns, they hold “greeting” ceremonies to welcome them back to the group. Elephants are also extremely caring creatures. If a baby elephant complains, the entire family will go over to touch and caress it. Elephants also pay homage to their dead, gently touching their skulls and tusks with their trunks and feet, and will stand still for several minutes when passing a place where a loved one has died.
