The climate of the Serengeti (Tanzania)
The Serengeti consists of the Serengeti National Park and is situated
in the northern part of Tanzania and the southern part of Kenya.
Serengeti literally means: Endless Plains. With a surface area of
30,000 square kilometers this is a very appropriate name. the
Ngorongoro crater can be found in the Serengeti, this is the oldest
volcanic crater in the world. A well-known phenomenon in the Serengeti
is the largest mammal migration in the world. During this migration
mainly wildebeest, zebras and gazelles roam the plains in their
hundreds of thousands causing spectacular scenes. Especially when
these large herds cross a river beautiful pictures can be taken, the
best way to do so is from a hot air balloon. The Serengeti has a
tropical savannah climate with most precipitation from November till
April. During the rest of the year showers are not uncommon. However,
precipitation figures are much lower than during the rainy period.
Temperatures are pleasant all year round. Daytime temperature are just
below 30 degrees (86.0 degrees Fahrenheit). These high temperatures in
combination with high precipitation figures may cause humidity figures
to be high as well.
