Tanzania is located in Africa. The country is washed by the Indian Ocean. Tanzania - has a fairly long coastline. To determine the temperature of the water in it, we track 14 settlements and resorts.

Equatorial monsoon. The mountainous regions and the southeastern part of the country have all the signs of a tropical climate, which is due to the characteristics of the relief. The temperature regime in Tanzania is quite uniform - the average winter temperature is around + 22°C (in the mountains - + 12-20°C), the average monthly summer temperature ranges from + 25°C in the south of the country to + 27°C in the north (up to + 24°C in mountainous areas). The amount of precipitation is very heterogeneous. In the mountainous central part of the country, up to 1000 mm of rain falls annually, mainly from November to May. The rest of the time here is very dry. In the area of ​​Lake Victoria, up to 200 mm of precipitation falls, and there is no clearly defined rainy season. In the north-east of the country, up to 1,400 mm of rain falls annually, with wet seasons (March-May and October-December) alternating with dry periods (from June to September and from January to February). On the slopes of the volcanoes of the Great Fault zone, up to 2000 mm of rain per year falls relatively evenly. On islands, in the marine climate zone, the average temperature is about 27°C with 1500-2000 mm of precipitation.
