Summer Holiday for Students in Tanzania 2024 / 2025 / 2026 : Summer in Europe vs. Summer in Tanzania : Europe is a stunning and attractive place to visit throughout the year, depending on the weather and destination you choose to embark on, while Tanzania is a beautiful country dotted with stunning safari attractions that are superb to visit any time of the year; the country also is best for students cultural tours, small and big hikes such as Kilimanjaro Mountain and paradise beaches of Zanzibar island.

Summer in Europe is commonly from June to August; however, this can differ according to the destination; the regular temperature in summer is about 30°C.

The Mediterranean coastline may get very sizzling, but other countries like Italy and Spain have mild weather, while summer in Tanzanian overlaps with the rainy season between November and March. January and February is the dry season. During the daytime, the temperature is generally over 30°C (86°F), and upland regions are much more relaxed. Cold clothes for the cooler temperatures in the mornings and evenings are highly recommended. The drizzly season begins in the first weeks of February, so rain gear and boots are a must-pack.

Student’s group safari in Tanzania for summer is recommended from the end of May until September because the student summer holiday in Europe differs; for example, in France, summer for students is from July 6th to September 2nd, while in Spain starts on June 23rd and ends on September 15th.

Advantage of students to spend European summer holiday in Tanzania

  1. Students Cultural Exchange Tour

Due to the quick expansion of technology around the globe in East Africa, Safari Guides finds it crucial to organize cultural exchange tours between Western students and the local people of Tanzania. Doing so will leverage the cultural differences and answer the questions international students might have. During this inter-cultural Tanzania safari tour, students will have time to explore and tour around the interior villages in Tanzania; they will participate in a Maasai Cultural tour in western Kilimanjaro where they will learn the way of Maasai life, how they eat traditional foods, drink raw animal blood, dance and taught the meaning of each dancing style and its rhythms. Maasai tribal is also famous for the traditional herbal medicine, which is given by Laigwanan, a senior leader of the Maasai tribe who’s believed to have healing power; you can also practice spear throwing competitions, enter their houses, which are built by women from animal dung and much more.

  1. Best safari prices during the summer in Europe

Since the summer holiday in Europe falls at the end of May, that’s a good time for the best safari offers in Tanzania because it is considered the low season on a safari tour in Tanzania. During this period, students can explore Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, and Serengeti National Park on an affordable student Serengeti camping safari. Accommodations such as small lodges, hotels, cabins, and homestays offer the best rates students can afford.

  1. Local life exchange experience

At East Africa Safari Guides, we organize multiple local life experience exchanges where Western students can interact with local children to learn about their daily activities and how they conduct their daily routine, which is quite different from how Western children do. There are many activities they can engage in this summer holiday in Tanzania for a student tour. I know back home you do wash dishes, but here in Africa it is quite different from how you perform it, also washing clothes in Europe people use a machine but here in Africa people use their hands to clean bell of clothes, cooking style, and ingredients are different from western cultures, there is so much to learn in Africa.

  1. Visit local government schools.

This is another way of learning the way of life of Africans; you will visit local government schools and see how the teaching program is conducted. Everything in Africa is carried out manually but is slowly changing into a digital world; the teachers still use chalks to write on the blackboard, while in Europe, teachers use projectors and laptops, which are essential to experience and learn.
