    Best time to visit Kenya

    Kenya is open all-year-long, the best wildlife viewing months in Kenya are during the Dry season from late June to October.

    The wildebeest migration usually reaches the Masai Mara in August and remains until October when they move back to the Serengeti in Tanzania.

     June to October –Dry Season. Wildlife is easier to spot.

    July to October are the best months to see the wildebeest migration It gets very busy and crowded in the most popular parks.

    November to May –Wet Season

    The scenery is beautiful and green Rates drop because it’s the low season.
