May is the green season in Tanzania, when the plains of many areas are carpeted by wildflowers. This is the most economical season for a Tanzania African safari when it comes to price.  Not to worry though, your wildlife sightings are just as good as any other season.

While you may experience rain on your journey, in fifteen years, it has not ever hampered our safaris.  Typically, it rains during the night, early mornings and clears up for a beautiful day, sometimes with scattered rain showers.

Departing May 1-10, 2019* 

Elephants love rain, and watching them in the rain, is a beautiful sight, so don’t be put off if you hear someone talk of the rainy season (May).  We’ve got you covered.

Please note:  Trip is based on six travelers for ‘Safari’ Kay to escort.  Pricing may change if less and group would be met on arrival by your driver-guide.

Spend some time in Zanzibar

Option 5 nights in Zanzibar on the Indian Ocean, (may not be escorted by Safari Kay, but transfers, meet and greet will be arranged), estimated at $3775 pp

If spending time on the beach, or visiting the historical slave quarters or Prison Island which houses tortoises at 150 lbs, is important to you , then you might want to consider this option.  Zanzibar is about an hour and a half flight from Tanzania.

It is part of Tanzania, but has its own government.  Zanzibar is 95% muslim, and offers an array of foods, and shopping possibilities to rival any other location.  Please note not all stores or properties serve alcohol, but wine is usually always available.

Areas visited (Arusha – 2 nights), Tarangire (2 nights), Manyara (2 nights), Serengeti (2 nights), Karatu (1 night).
