Kenya

Kenya is rightfully described as “All of Africa in One Country”. At the heart of East Africa it straddles the equator and offers immense diversity: snow-capped mountains, savannah, flamingo-rich lakes and colourful tribes.

Perhaps most synonymous with The Great Wildebeest Migration in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, it is also home to the “Big 5” (lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and elephant) and a stunning palm-fringed coastline.

Gallop amongst the herds of the Maasai Mara or take in views of the panoramic plains dotted with game, as you float above in a hot-air balloon.   Meet the Maasai and get a glimpse of their authentic culture and their ancient way of life, or simply sit back and relax on pristine beaches at one of the idyllic coastal resorts.

Best Time to Visit

Bird-Watching:  October to January
Wildlife Viewing:  All year round
Great Maasai Mara Migration:  July to October
Whale Sharks:  February and March

Kenya’s wildlife can be enjoyed all year round, but the long dry season is from July to October, which coincides with the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra in the Maasai Mara.   There is little rain and low humidity and, since the bush is at its thinnest, game is easiest to view around this time of year.   January to February brings the calving season - also a popular time of year to visit.   It’s a good time of year for snorkelling and diving too.

Kenya’s rainy season runs from March to May, April being the wettest month.   The heavy rains bring run-off into the rivers which, in turn, reduce visibility in the sea - so diving is best avoided at this time of year.
