Best Time to Book a Flight to Lake Manyara

Though Tanzania sits quite close to the Earth's equator, the average temperatures at Lake Manyara National Park are actually mild. Daytime temperatures are consistently comfortable year-round while night-time temperatures can be rather cold. The park does also have a long rainy season, ranging from October to March. Visiting from June to September, the park's dry season, is therefore preferable for tourists. This is also the season in which animals are easier to spot within the park.

When planning a trip to Lake Manyara, be sure to consult with the Canadian government's travel guide before finalizing your flight plans. Currently, Canadian officials advise extreme caution when visiting Tanzania due to unsafe conditions for tourists. If you do visit, you will need a valid visa in addition to your passport.
