In general, wildlife is easier to spot in October. Early October is the end of the dry season in Tanzania, meaning for the first weeks of the month, the land is dry, brown, and dusty. However, this lack of moisture leads to animals congregating around rivers and watering holes – the only sources of water.
The dryness of the land makes the animals sluggish, meaning this is one of your best opportunities to see hunting predators in action like cheetahs, leopards, and lions. October is also one of the best times to visit Arusha National Park, Tarangire National Park, and Mount Meru!
