intro

If there is a perfect climate in the world, surely it is in East Africa. Although it can be hot and sticky by the sea, inland the, air is dry and even at midday the temperatures are equitable. Due to the proximity of the equator, sunrise occurs daily between 0600hrs and 0630hrs while sunset takes place 12 hours later. It can get quite chilly in the early morning and evening hence visitors should pack a sweater.


There are two main rainy seasons – usually mid-April to the end of May and November to mid-December. Even during the rains, the weather can be pleasant with rain occurring in the early morning and late in afternoons or evening. The general temperatures currently in Arusha, the Parks, Zanzibar and Dar es Salaam range between 27 and 34 degrees celcius.


Clothing


Safari clothing should be casual and comfortable. Cotton slacks and shirts, with skirts and culottes for ladies and a light sweater or jacket, during the day. Evening wear in game lodge and safari camps can be very casual. At high altitudes (like Ngorongoro), where early morning and evenings can very chilly, warm sweaters, socks and comfortable shoes are recommended. Pack suntan lotion, swimwear (to be reserved for the beach and pool only), a small first aid kit, a flash light and alarm clock. Local customs and modesty should be respected. The cultures of the Zanzibar coast do not allow almost nude dressing, particularly on the beaches. The dressing should be modest.
