When to visit Kenya

Kenya is within the tropics and the equator cuts through the country. It is thus a  year-round safari  holiday  tourist  destination becoming busier during the summer season from June to October.

Due to the sparsity of browsing  vegetation in Tanzania , wildebeest migrate from the famous Serengeti game reserve in Tanzania to the cross border extension of Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya.  The best and most rewarding wildlife viewing period to safari in Kenya  is from the mid-July  to October, when the Great wildebeest Migration is usually at its most active.. Safari tour package prices may be relatively high during this time due to the inevitable dictates of demand and supply!

The main tourist circuits of  Kenya are  busy especially the ‘great’  Masai Mara game reserve hub. Other national parks which are well during this peak season are Lake Nakuru National Park, Lake Naivasha & surrounding rift valley areas, Olpejeta Conservancy, Aberdares National park, Samburu National reserve , Tsavo East National Park and Amboseli National park.

A combined Kenya and Tanzania holiday safari is also worth considering for a more diverse experience of East Africa.
