It is advisable to carry insect repellents along with you while travelling to Tanzania.
The most attractive activity in Tanzania is the Great Wildebeest Migration which is an annual migration of giant herds of grazers across Northern Tanzania and Kenya.
On an average over two million wildebeests, zebras and gazelles move through the Serengeti and Masai Mara networks in search food and water.
This Great Migration in Tanzania can be witnessed all year round as the wildlife migrates in a circular motion around the Serengeti National Park.
Casual clothing is expected in Tanzania so you do not need to pack any extravagant clothes. Loose-fitting and lightweight clothes are the best choices in Tanzanian safari that they keep you cool and even dry quickly in case you get caught in a rain shower. Carry a good fleece or jacket for warding off the chilly cold mornings of game drive activities. You can wear long sleeves at night as there will usually be a campfire to keep you warm but you will need to protect yourself from mosquitoes.
