Weather

Seasons in the Serengeti

East Africa is equatorial so the climate is fairly constant and it is a year-round destination. Tanzania has a light rain season from November to March. This period is known as the ‘short rains’, often no more than a quick downpour each day, followed by clear sunshine. From December to March the weather becomes increasingly warmer with the ‘long rains’ occurring between April and May.

To ensure your comfort you may want to tailor your clothing choices to the time of year:

October – April:

Casual summer clothing (shorts and lightweight shirts) with a warm jersey or sweater for the cooler morning and evening temperatures.

May – September:

Casual lightweight clothing with a very warm parka or windbreaker jacket for the very cold mornings and nights.

ACCOMODATION

An intimate setting in an untouched wilderness

Functional design elements and airy spaces encourage guests to continuously connect with nature, allowing for complete relaxation and an authentic sense of calm. The epitome of sustainable tourism, the camp operates off the grid and relies entirely on a custom-designed solar system for its power and the use of recycled and natural materials wherever possible.

Inside the camp, contemporary chic sets the tone for cool relaxation; raw leather blends, Maasai colours and elegant art by young African designers and craftsmen.
