The wet season has many advantages too. Everyone loves baby animals, and between January and February is perfect to see the wildebeest calves. Unfortunately for the wildebeest, this is also an excellent time to see one of the 2,500 lions in action.
The wet season offers luscious vegetation and is a great opportunity to see a green Serengeti with far fewer tourists. You may also enjoy lower rates.
Keen birdwatchers love the wet season, as there are lots of migratory birds passing through, adding to the myriad of species that live on the plains all year round. Over 500 species of birds can be seen on the Serengeti over the wet season; they’re generally best viewed during dawn and dusk.
Many people are put off travelling during the rainy season, imagining that their holiday will be ruined by constant rain. However, the rainy season mainly consists of short bursts of intense rain, after which you’ll be able to go about your safari adventures. March to May is the peak of the rainy season, and rains can be a little heavier during this time.
