North Tanzania during the Green Season (Photo highlights)

In May of this year I travelled to north Tanzania for 2 weeks, exploring the classic northern circuit safari route as well as Lake Natron and the Maasai territories around Ol Doinyo Lengai. Though ostensibly Tanzania’s low season, I found May to be a wonderful time to travel in the country. Tarangire proved especially beautiful, its usually dry and dusty northern plains turned lush and green after the rains, while the central Seronera region of the Serengeti offered stunning game viewing without the heavy vehicle traffic usually associated with this region of the park. Only in the Ngorongoro Highlands and around Karatu did we feel the impact of the rains.

Below is a selection of photos taken during my stay which I hope highlight the appeal of travelling to Tanzania during this often-overlooked season:
