Kenya safari holidays are one of the most sought-after experiences in the world, and for good reason. Boasting over 50 national parks and game reserves, Kenya is known as the birthplace of safari, famous for its big cats and even bigger elephants. The diversity of wildlife, culture and ecosystems means that no two experiences are the same on a tailor-made Kenya safari – yet all are magical, appealing to first-timers and veterans alike.
When to go
One of the best times to visit Kenya is during the dry season between June and October, when animals congregate around permanent water sources and are easier to spot. The Great Migration in Kenya usually occurs from mid-July to mid-October, which is peak season so booking well in advance is advised.
The weather in Kenya between the months of November and March is still good, with the short rains that bring life to the plains making this an excellent time for wildlife viewing. The parks will be less crowded and you’ll have the chance to see new-born animals and migratory birds.
Wildlife viewing is more difficult between April and May as the season of ‘long rains’ makes animal sightings difficult and travel can become trickier.
