The Best Time of Year to go on Safari in Tanzania

by Dave Burns | Posted in News | Tags: , , , , , , ,

Since I schedule safaris at different times during the year, one of the questions I’m frequently asked is, which time of year is best to go?

Honestly, there’s no bad time to go but things will be different depending on when you choose: sometimes there are greener landscapes, sometimes cooler temperatures, etc. Here is more detail:

Announcing My 2019 Safaris!

Lion and Wildebeest in the Crater

Amazing Price on My 2019 Safaris!

See the Serengeti in 2019

If you’ve always been excited about a trip to Africa but the price has been out of reach, I have great news. I am able to keep my 2019 safari prices low again with the same high quality guides and lodging. An 11-day safari to Tanzania’s best wildlife spots is just $5,880 in February and $6,075 in July and October. That’s more than 30% off the typical price for safaris of this quality.

You don’t need to be a hardcore photographer to join us on this special safari experience; you just need to want to experience the excitement of watching wildlife up close.

On my February safari, we’ll spend 2 nights in Tarangire, 2 nights at the Ngorongoro Crater, 3 nights in the southern Serengeti, and finish with 2 nights in the central Serengeti. Highlights in February will be new zebra foals and wildebeest calves. Click here for details.

On my July and October safaris, we’ll spend 2 nights in Tarangire, 2 nights at the Ngorongoro Crater, 3 nights in the central Serengeti, and wrap up with 2 nights in the Serengeti’s north. Highlights in July are cooler temperatures and a chance to see the wildebeest herds cross the Mara River. In October, the dry season means the wildlife in Tarangire must come down to drink at the Tarangire River, the only water source in the park which makes it easier for us – and predators – to see them. Click here for details on the July safari and click here for details on the October safari.

If you are at all interested in joining us for an incredible experience, contact me asap at info@daveburnsphoto.com.

New Photo Safari to the Serengeti in March 2017

Elephant and Photographers in Ngorongoro Crater

Last week’s gallery opening in Arlington, MA was a big success. For those of you who aren’t local or couldn’t make it, I’ll post the images of Paris that I’m showing there over the coming weeks on my Facebook page – be sure to follow me there.

In Photo Tour news, my March 2017 photo safari is now ready and listed on this site and I’m excited that I can offer it at the same price as my 2016 tour. It’s an amazing 11-day, 10-night safari where you will stay at exclusive camps right in the parks. I’ve designed it to put you right in the middle of the action so you can come home with great images.

March is at the end of the foaling season in the Serengeti: you will see young zebras and wildebeest among the herds. The Ngorongoro Crater is lush and green and Tarangire is full of amazing baobabs and elephants for us to photograph. You can find all of the details about this safari here.

Contact me soon if you would like to join the group on this great photographic opportunity!
