It is difficult to give accurate information on rainfall in Tanzania.
TThe Guides merely copy, most of the time, the same sentence:
Â«Early rainy season from November to December and long rainy season between April and JuneÂ».
The reality is much more complex.
- The country is vast and the climate varies greatly from one region to another and sometimes over short distances.
- On the other hand, it is difficult to collect accurate weather information on each region.
Zanzibar is a tropical island: with a hot and humid climate.
Legend has it that the rainy season arrives on March 15 at 15 o'clock.
It is also worth to note that the rainfall is very uneven between the West Island (3 times wettest) and the East (a much drier region).
