Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

The only time to avoid Kenya is during the long rainy season in April and May. November is considered the short rainy season, however, these are less predictable and are much lighter. The best time of year to visit the Maasai Mara is during the Great Wildebeest Migration which tends to pass through the Mara between mid July to late October.

Itinerary

Combining incredible wildlife experiences, plenty of sporting activities, a mix of safari and time relaxing and enjoying watersports by the beach, this is a great combination for families with teenagers looking for an unforgettable adventure in Kenya.

  1. Fly into Nairobi

  2. Days 1-4: Laikipia

    Fly by private Charter from Nairobi and start your safari adventure in Kenya on the Laikipia plateau. Expore the stunning Lewa Wildlife Conservancy by camel, horseback, safari vehicle and even from the skies, flying in a bright yellow bi-plane (extra cost). Wildlife here is diverse and includes good numbers of rhino, lion, wild dog and elephant as well as more unusual species such as the reticulated giraffe and Grevy's zebra. Your lodge, Lewa Wilderness, is where the conservancy began, and the owners Will and Emma Craig are passionate about wildlife conservation, adding interesting and personal side to your safari here. For those that are interested, you can meet some of the rangers and anti-poaching patrol teams.

    Accommodation: Lewa Wilderness (3 nights)

  3. Days 4-7: Maasai Mara and Southern Kenya

    Fly to the Maasai Mara and begin the second part of your safari. The Masai Mara is home to some of the best wildlife viewing in Africa. If you are here in August or September, you may catch sight of the Great Migration, where two million wildebeest and zebra flood the grassy savannah plains, and big cats lie in wait for the perfect moment to pounce. Year-round the wildlife here is incredible, though, with pods of hippos wallowing in the mud, herds of elephants, prides of lazy lions lounging on the top of the rocky kopjes and cheetah who have even been known to sit on the roof of a safari vehicle as a vantage point. For a real treat, take to the skies in a hot air balloon to get an aerial perspective. Serian adds to your traditional safari experience by offering warrior training, great for teens - going jogging with the Maasai, learning to throw spears and earning your place in the tribe.

    Accommodation: Serian Camp (3 nights)

  4. Days 7-13: Lamu and the coast

    After this, some beach time is in order, and where better than the Kenya coast, just a short hop away by plane. Relax and unwind and indulge at the spa, whilst the teenagers head to the beach to play football or volleyball, or try their hand at kitesurfing, sailing or doing an introductory dive course.

    Accommodation: Almanara Villas (6 nights)

  5. Fly home from Diani Beach

Experiences

    Explore this beautiful area of Kenya with your professional safari guide in search of some of the fantastic wildlife of Laikipia. Enjoy the opportunity to track and view some of the critically endangered white and black rhino of the conservancy.

    Experience a different kind of safari and take a pack trip out into the Lewa Conservancy on the back of a camel.

  • Maasai Mara Balloon Safari
