Best time to Visit the Park:

The best time to visit the western Kilimanjaro park plains on your northern safari of Tanzania with Kuhe Tours will vary according to your interests. Because of the vulnerability of the Amboseli ecosystem to changes in rainfall and temperature and of the varied climate zones as you ascend Kilimanjaro, there is a great variation in conditions, not only from month to month but from area to area.

In general, animals are easier to spot when foliage is sparse and dry from July to October, especially in the vicinity of the camps, where there are often attractive waterholes. There is minimal rainfall, low humidity, mosquitoes are not generally a problem, and if you feel chilly in the morning or at night, there is always a cheerful campfire or a welcome hot-water bottle and plenty of blankets. Bring long trousers and a light fleece for an early trip to Kilimanjaro or an evening drive.
