Our departure dates coincide with the dry seasons of East Africa. Temperatures are typically in the 70s - 80s during the day, cooling off to the 50s - 60s in the evening. Departures from December through February can expect daytime temperatures to be about 10 degrees higher on average. The Ngorongoro Crater is over 7,500'+ high, so expect cool mornings and evenings regardless of the season.
