Kilimanjaro Trip via Marangu Route I hiked Kilimanjaro in December 2022 and it was an awesome experience thanks to the good organization of the trip from George! I had the best Crew and guide with me, helping to reach the Uhuru peak! I will never forget this adventure. Also the day trip to the Materuni waterfalls included in my package was very nice and I really enjoyed. I can recommend to visit Materuni villages and see how coffee is locally produced!

Amazing Experience with Nyamera Treks and Safaris!!! I had the pleasure of climbing Kilimanjaro with Nyamera Treks and Safaris a few weeks ago. George and his team are true professionals. They ensured we were moving at an appropriate pace to make the summit. George's guides and porters were amazing. Their attentiveness made our experience even more special. I would definitely book a trip with Nyamera again!

Best Time to Travel

The best time for a Tanzania safari largely depends on what you hope to experience. If witnessing the Great Migration in the Serengeti is your goal, then the dry season from late June to October is ideal, as the animals gather in search of water. However, if you’re interested in birdwatching or avoiding crowds, the wet season from November to May might be more appealing.

During this time, the landscapes are lush and green, and you may catch the birthing season, witnessing adorable baby animals taking their first steps. Ultimately, the best time for a Tanzania safari is when it aligns with your interests and preferences, as each season offers its unique charms and wildlife experiences.
