June marks the opening of the dry season in Tanzania. Unsurprisingly, the weather in the dry season is exactly what you might expect – warm (but not hot) temperatures, low humidity, and very little, if any, precipitation. June temperatures range from 15°C to 27°C on the mainland with typically chilly mornings and evenings (pack a jacket!).
During the dry season, the landscape becomes drained of colour. The lush, verdant land of the wet season gives way to a variety of beiges and browns of the dry season. While this often allows for the best game viewing, it can sometimes get dusty, particularly when there are crowds and more game vehicles.
