Kenya travel

Venture into the heart of Africa, where wilderness safaris originated. This unique destination boasts culture, adventure and wildlife experiences that are unique in comparison to any other African or global destination. Float over the savannah plains in a hot air balloon or witness the Great Migration in its earth shuddering trek through the Maasai Mara, skydive at Diani beach or track Wild Dogs through the Laikipia Wilderness - the list of wild and adventurous experiences in this East African wildlife mecca is long and glorious.

Good to know Wildlife When to visit

Wildlife

Kenya boasts volumes of giraffe, zebra and wildebeest grazing in the expansive plains and hippo are commonly seen wallowing in the waters. Expect to encounter a hyena mischievously sniffing about a lion’s kill. Look out for the endemic and eccentric gerenuk as well as the rare fringe-eared oryx. There have been over 1100 bird species recorded in Kenya, including the ground hornbill, white-bellied go-away-bird and hartlaub’s bustard.

Good to know Wildlife When to visit

Best time to visit

  • Best time to go and why?
    Kenya is best experienced during the dry months between June and October. During this time, vegetation is less and animals gather around water sources, making wildlife easier to spot.
  • When is high season?
    Between June and November as well as January and February, you are likely to experience some phenomenal wildlife encounters. January and February promise picturesque green landscapes, while June to November provides clear skies and fewer mosquitoes.
  • When is low season?
    From March to May Kenya is an eden of greenery. Although fewer camps and lodges are open, parks are less crowded and your safari will feel more exclusive.
  • When is the best weather?
    Kenya experiences the best weather between June and October when there is very little rainfall. The parks are cool and dry, providing you with great game viewing opportunities.
