So be sure to include a couple of national parks in your itinerary. It goes without saying that Serengeti National Park should be on your priority list of places to visit while in Tanzania.

  • Fun at the beach: Tanzania in June is always perfect for a beach vacation. Soak up the sun and enjoy the cool, inviting waters and calming breeze at Nakupenda Beach, Jambiani Beach, Kendwa Beach, or Nungwi Beach.
  • Festivals: Participate in the Karibu Travel and Tourism Fair, hosted close to Tanzania’s prime attractions—Mount Kilimanjaro, Lake Manyara, Tarangire, and the Serengeti. The event brings tourism-related exhibits and activities. Bujora's Bulabo Dance Festival and Zanzibar International Film Festival are other events that you do not want to miss while visiting Tanzania in June.

Have you ever fantasized about getting up the tallest mountain in Africa? You have a chance of turning this fantasy into reality by visiting Tanzania in June. Include Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru in your itinerary, for the weather, is exceedingly clement during this time, not just for the hike itself but also for the views. Take a trip to the Western Serengeti to witness the spectacle put on by the wildebeest in their hundreds of thousands migrating across the plains of the Grumeti. There are fewer opportunities to see a wildlife migration of this proportion elsewhere in the world. If you are curious about the culture and history of Tanzania, you will find a wealth of fascinating destinations. Some places to see are Zanzibar and Dar es Salaam, which have many historical sites and museums. 

June offers ideal outdoor weather in Tanzania. This is the time when many travelers make their plans to visit the country to explore its stunning wilderness and natural attractions. The start of the peak tourist season in Tanzania means the tour and accommodation rates could be higher. Then again, this is one of the best times to see the country.
