When to Visit Kenya


The best months to view wildlife in Kenya are June to October also known as the dry season. The wildebeest migration has been recognized one of the 7 wonders of the world and a lot of people travel to Masai Mara between mid July to early October for this spectacular parade. Usually by Early October the wildebeest migrate back to Serengeti in Tanzania.


The Dry Season is also known as the high season (June to October).

Even thought he parks can get very busy and crowded the weather is perfect sunny high 80's with a cool breeze in the morning and evening. Since there is no rain the chances of encountering mosquitos is very low. The animals are always thirsty and it's easier to spot them at every watering hole. They don't have a lot of places to hide because the bushes and shrubs are dried out.

The wet season is also known as the low season  (November to May)

A lot of people choose this time to visit Kenya because It's more affordable.

Everything is green  and food is in plenty  and so there is a lot of wildlife You are sure to also spot  a lot of new born baby animals.

The lodges are less crowded and though mosquitos might also be liking the wet season the lodges provide mosquito nets and you can enjoy your night without these unwelcome night visitors.

I have gone to kenya during every season and they never dissapoint.
