Title: What is the best time for a safari in Kenya?


1
What is the Best Time for a Safari in Kenya
  • You plan and save for 5 years to take a trip to
    Africa and manage to get the cheapest packages
    online. Everything is great until you find out
    that you have landed smack in the middle of the
    rainy season and your beach wear is not going to
    help you. That is the problem of taking safari
    packages with no information about the best time
    for a Safari in Kenya.

2
  • The beauty of an African adventure is that you
    never know what to expect even when you take into
    account everything you have ever read. The only
    constant with East African Adventure is that you
    either come in the right season, or you hate the
    place. Being home to several wildlife species
    also means that you have to plan ahead.

3
Avoid the Long Rain Seasons
  • To get you started follow the following rule of
    thumb. Avoid the rainy seasons and you will
    surely have a great time.
  • The great news is that there are only two rainy
    seasons in Kenya. The short rains and the long
    rains. What you want to do is avoid planning for
    a beach holiday during the long rains. Even the
    animals are hiding behind thick bushes during the
    long rains.

4
  • To make things worse, some of the best lodges and
    camping seasons are closed. Unless you are a hard
    core backpacker, the truth is that you will
    spending most of your times indoors hiding from
    the rains than actually seeing the grevys zebra
    you came to see.
  • The long rains are usually between the months of
    March to May/June.

5
  • The interesting thing though is that should you
    come during this time, take the time to see the
    Safari Rally. There was a time Kenya safaris were
    not complete without watching the rally. You
    could also try to visit the northern part of
    Kenya which is dry even during this period.

6
  • Homestays to Kenya holidays are also a great
    activity during this period as you stay on the
    cheap in the country. Who knows, your homestay
    family may actually have a great adventure
    customized just for you.

7
January to March is Beach Holiday
  • If you are really looking to get the best holiday
    deals in Kenya, this is probably the only time
    when you can truly get a cheap holiday. Also take
    into account that you shouldnt expect 5 Star
    services.

8
Time
  • Probably the driest months in the country and dry
    is what you want. To be very honest with you,
    dont plan on finding any rooms during this
    period of you had not booked earlier. The Kenyan
    beaches are often at capacity.

9
  • For those who would love to have a wildlife
    safari where the predators rule the world, this
    is the time to come. This is the ultimate time
    for men in shorts as the sun is out during this
    time and the parks lodges hotels are in all
    open.

10
  • After your wildlife safari, in one of national
    parks, a trip to Chyulu hills and a balloon
    safari, you need to finish in style near water
    sandy beaches of Diani. If the beaches arent
    your style, then finish your Kenyan safari at a
    game reserve on Mt. Kenya or the Aberdares. A
    trip to the Ark is always one that you will never
    forget.

11
  • In other words, the Kenya tourism season is open
    for business and you shall love every second of
    it.

12
October to December Short Rains Season
  • We said avoid the rainy seasons, but this season
    is best suited for those who wish to see the best
    of the country, at reasonable prices, without the
    crowds. It is not like the long rain seasons of
    March to June.

13
  • There is a little rain but you will find some of
    the best Kenya safari packages you can only dream
    about. You may be lucky to even get the tail end
    of the Wildbeast migration especially if there
    was a delay of any kind. Hotels are not
    exorbitant.

14
  • Infact, a lot of visitors are found in Amboseli
    avoiding all the crowding experienced in the peak
    seasons. Camping safaris are excellent during
    this time. If you are seeking the complete africa
    safari, then take a quick trip to the rift valley
    and visit Lake Nakuru and learn more about Kenya.
    Savannah areas such as the samburu game reserve
    are excellent for group journeys.

15
My Favorite Time to for Safaris in Kenya
  • I may be a bit prejudiced but its great all the
    time. But surely, you cant come to Kenya without
    visiting the maasai mara. The mara is great most
    of the year, but during the months of July to
    November, it is paradise.

16
  • If you are seeking that excusite luxury travel
    safari to Africa, just visit the wildbeast
    migration during this season. There is nothing
    like it in the world. The big five are out in
    their glory, the land is rich with life and the
    masai mara is rebuilding.

17
  • If you decide to go the rift valley or the ark,
    you will come as close to the animals as you will
    ever get. Its a truly wonderful time to visit
    Kenya.
