Best time to Visit Mwanza

Your Tanzania expedition safari planning in Mwanza – Lake Victoria should consider the time of year that you strategize to visit. Two factors that change over the course of the year are the number of tourists and the weather conditions, both of which may be influenced by your personal preferences. During the low tourist season correlated to the wet spring season, there are not only fewer crowds, but you also have greater senses of isolation and personal connection with the landscape and the local peoples. Hotel prices are generally the same throughout the year with little or no variance. 

The average temperature in Mwanza ranges from lows and highs of 66-80 F (19-27 C) depending on the month of travel. Humidity in town is averagely dry due to its altitude augmented with the cool-off from the lake breeze as most of the hot air moisture is limited to the forested regions in the outskirts of the town. During the dry season, the area has parched vegetation and the roads can be dusty. Despite this, temperatures are most comfortable from June through September and also October. When the short and long rains respectively begin to come into the area in November and December and March through May, green grasses sprout from what seemed only arid land, and the area can be quite spectacular.
