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. Game viewing in Samburu is great year-round. 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 but the wildlife is present year-round, and there is always plenty to see here. The weather on the Kenya coast is typically sunny and calm from July until October, with trade winds bringing cooler breezes throughout the rest of the year. January til March can be quite hot and humid.

Itinerary

A luxurious safari combining some of Kenya's most amazing wildlife areas, Samburu, wild and remote Sera and the Maasai Mara, enjoying game drives as well as learning about the local culture, before flying out for some beach time on the Kenyan coast to unwind.

  1. Fly to Nairobi

  2. Days 1-3: Laikipia and Northern Kenya

    Next travel to wild Northern Kenya and Saruni Rhino located within the Sera Conservancy. At Saruni Rhino you will have the remarkable opportunity of embarking on one of the first rhino tracking experiences in East Africa. Join highly trained rangers equipped with GPS transmitters in their search for the endangered black rhino, a truly unforgettable experience. Using the GPS you will drive through the reserve in a 4x4 with the trained tracker and guide, when the monitor indicates a close proximity to the rhino guests will follow the signal on foot and have the adrenaline fuelled opportunity to see these amazing animals in their natural habitat.

    Accommodation: Saruni Rhino (3 nights)

  3. Days 4-7: Laikipia and Northern Kenya

    Begin your safari in a concession bordering the Samburu Reserve, home to vast herds of elephants which are colored red from the rusty earth of this area. Look for the unusual Northern Kenya species including gerenuk antelope, Grevy's zebra and oryx, as well as big cats aplenty. Your lodge is perched on the top of a hill, to enjoy breath-taking views wherever you look. As well as wildlife activities, you can spend time with the Samburu tribe, learning about their traditions and culture.

    Accommodation: Saruni Samburu (3 nights)

  4. Days 7-10: Mara North Conservancy, Kenya

    Fly from here into the Maasai Mara to continue your safari in the Mara North Conservancy. Here you can enjoy all the wildlife of the world-famous reserve with none of the crowds, as well as heading off on walking safaris to experience the wildlife from a different perspective. In August and September, head into the main reserve to search for the million-strong Great Migration herds of wildebeest, gazelles and zebras which flood the Mara, much to the delight of lion, leopard and cheetah which lie in wait.

    Accommodation: Saruni Mara (3 nights)
