Best Safaris Times
Home

This is one question that pops up all the times, and the answer is very simple: it depends on when you can afford to travel.

The months between July and October are when the famous Wildebeest Migration takes place and thousands of tourists from all over the world scramble to come and witness this.

This migration often looks like a huge, brown wave of animals moving in one direction. About two million wildebeest migrate from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya.

This Wildebeest Migration actually includes zebras, which migrate between the Maasai Mara Game Reserve and the Loita hills. It is a phenomenon that causes a lot of excitement worldwide, so it is most expensive time to take a Safari to Kenya.

The good news is, it is not the only time you can come to Kenya. There are all kinds of wildlife to see in Kenya, which you can view all year round on a Safari so you can visit the country at cheaper tourist seasons and still enjoy yourself immensely.

The only season to avoid for a Safari is the rainy one that takes place between April and May. Due to global warming, seasons are not as predictable as they used to be. During a hot season for example, you might find unexpected light rain showers, so prepare for the weather surprises during your Safari to Kenya.

If you are a wildlife photographer, nature enthusiast, or even travel writer, avoid the peak season as there will be large number of people in the parks.

Your job requires serenity and calm when wildlife is in its most natural state, and when you can think most clearly. You can still make time to come for a Safari during the more boisterous Wildebeest Migration as it is a magnificent site that everyone should have an opportunity to see.
