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.

Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures donít always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
