Default safari in early august: kenia or tanzania?


Months of July and August are the winter seasons in Tanzania /
Kenya...however it is advisable to carry with you sweaters and warm
clothing's. At Zanzibar, the temperatures don't get all that low
compared to the northern parts of Tanzania. Generally, the cold isn't
terribly bad as many people survive it. Additionally, it's the dry
season and animals can easily be spotted without driving much distances
in search for them so I suggest you go ahead with your plans. I did a
safari with Time Warner Safaris (Tanzania) and they were amazing.
Their services were all excellent including their very knowledgeable
driver guide. I highly recommend them to organize everything for you.
Get in touch with them on and they will be
of great help in arranging everything...

All the best.

Filgga, all,

I'd label that an enormous exaggeration.

At the coast, the temperatures still remain near 30C (86F)
through day and night. In Nairobi, there are still sunny days
with temperatures getting close to that.

Only in the morning the temperatures in Maasai Mara or Nairobi
(i.e. at altitudes above 5,000 ft) occasionally get as low as
12C (53F), but after 8 am temperatures rise quickly. It
doesn't get cooler than that. No ice on the lakes. (:-)

In short, you need one warm jacket or sweater for the cool
mornings, otherwise you only need the same normal summer clothes
you wear in central Europe or north America.

See http://www.michna.com/kenya.htm for check lists and safari
background information.
