Best Time to Visit Kenya

Kenya’s seasons are shaped by the rains. The annual deluge falls in April and May (which can make travel difficult and many camps close), with the dry or safari season running from July to October. When is the best time to visit Kenya? This is a question often posed to our experts and the honest answer is that there is no truly “bad” time, and each season reaps its own rewards.

Best time to visit

Our experts will guide you as to the best time to visit Kenya, based on what is most important to you. Have you long daydreamed of witnessing the Wildebeest Migration? The main spectacle is typically best viewed between mid-July and October, with river crossings common in this period, and the drama at its zenith. Prices will be at their peak and accommodation can book out a year in advance, so let’s get planning! For those seeking a more exclusive experience, have you heard of the secret season? Between November and March (and also in June) dramatic skies and tempting offers make this spell truly rewarding.
