Is it all closed due to rain in May?

Hi,

We were planning to visit TNZ mainly for Serengeti and Zanibar (beaches) in May this year. The early indication is that it is a bad time to go there.

Is it true that this is the time for rains?

Will some/most of the lodges be closed?

Will be not get to see the wildlife?

Thanks

May is actually one of the best times to be in the Serengeti. Rains would normally not be a problem. Land is green, the migrating herds of wildebeest & zebras are there. Predators looking for them.

Some of the camps will be closed during the rains but the lodges will remain open.

Like I said on your other post.

don't leave the booking too late!

You will find the rates reasonable as it is quiet but not closed.

the wildlife does not get time off either!
