Climate and Weather

The Ngorongoro Conservation Area, which includes the Ngorongoro Crater, has a climate that is similar to the Serengeti due to its proximity in northern Tanzania. The region experiences distinct wet and dry seasons. Here is an overview of the climate and weather in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

Dry Season (June to October)

  • This is the primary dry season in the Serengeti. It is characterized by sunny and warm weather with little to no rainfall.
  • Daytime temperatures during this period typically range from 70°F to 80°F (21°C to 27°C).
  • The dry season is an excellent time for wildlife viewing as animals gather around water sources, and the vegetation is less dense, making it easier to spot them.

Short Rainy Season (November to December)

  • The short rainy season is a transitional period with sporadic rainfall. While it’s not as heavy as the long rainy season, there may be brief afternoon showers.
  • Daytime temperatures remain relatively warm, with averages similar to the dry season.

Long Rainy Season (March to May)

  • This is the main rainy season in the Serengeti. It is characterized by more consistent and heavy rainfall.
  • During the long rainy season, the park becomes lush and green, providing a different perspective of the landscape.
  • Wildlife tends to disperse during this time, as water and food sources become abundant.
