When to Travel to Oliver's Camp

The best months to visit Tarangire are September and October, when the peak season crowds have thinned and the dry conditions are still excellent for wildlife spotting. That said, Oliver’s is a year-round camp, where the wet seasons are great for photography and birding.

Why travel at this time

There’s usually a break in the rains in January and February before the long rains begin in March. Migratory birds are in the region and photographic conditions are great, with lush landscapes and clear skies. There are also fewer tourists travelling to the region at this time.


This is the hottest time of year, with an average high of 29°C/84°F. The average dips to about 16°C/61°F. Expect some showers in January and February. The long rains begin in March.
