The Tanzania climate is generally tropical but temperate in highlands. The Central plateau which lies 900-1,500 meters above the Sea level is dry and arid with hot days and cool nights; this gives Tanzania a nice tropical climate with temperatures averages between 21 - 27 degrees Celsius during the day and between 12 and 18 degrees Celsius at night.

June and September is the cool season.

The "long rains" are from March to May and the "the short rains" from October to December.

The hottest moths are between October and February. Along the Coastal regions with its neighbouring Islands of Zanzibar, it rains in November and December and from March to May.

In Dar es Salaam city with the Coastal regions and Islands can be hot and humid although Sea breezes cool the area pleasantly between June and September.

Although Tanzania has no winter as such and summer clothing will normally suffice, some light woollen clothing should be taken for the higher altitudes!
