There’s great wildlife watching all year in Kenya. Days are warm year-round, but it gets chilly on early morning and evening game drives.Learn more about Kenya
JANUARY TO MARCH
Great game viewing at cheaper prices. This is the dry season, so animals are easier to spot in the shorter grasses and around waterholes.
APRIL TO JUNE
April to May is peak rainy season – a good time to escape the crowds and get the best value. With these long rains, vehicle access can be more difficult so be prepared for adventures in the mud!
JULY TO SEPTEMBER
The most popular time to go on safari in Kenya, as the Great Wildebeest Migration herds are usually in the Maasai Mara. It’s the most expensive time to travel and crowds gather in the hope of seeing the famous river crossings. We’d recommend booking far in advance to get your first-choice camps or lodges.
OCTOBER TO DECEMBER
November to December is the short rainy season – a good time to see new-born animals. Also the best months to see migratory birds, especially at the lakes.
