The Climate

The climate in Tanzania is tropical and there is not much difference between winter and summer temperatures (seasons are the opposite of what they are in Italy.). Average temperatures range from 20 to 30 degrees, higher in the coastal areas and Zanzibar, while lower in the mountains. On Mount Kilimanjaro temperatures can even drop as low as zero degrees.

There aretwo dry seasons: the driest period is winter between May and October, which is the most bearable time of the year. January and February are also quite rainy months.

The main rainy periods, however, are between December and April in the south, and between October and December and March and April in the north. The climate in this period is more humid and hotter.
