Best Time to Visit/Recommendations

The wildebeest migration Safari is nothing short of amazing. It is one of the must do add to your bucket list. Best time to be in Kenya on safari for it is June – October although a Kenya safari is a great year-round destination.

While Masai Mara has its own technicalities and is an all year around safari Destination, The dry season (June till October) is great for the wild beast migration and recommended to use destination management company tour guides for seeing the wild beast migration and much more wildlife as they know where and how to spot spectacular wildlife.

The Rainy seasons are so perfect with great weather some days but a little slippery roads and limited tracks, but the beautiful part of the rainy season is less crowds both in the game drive area and in the Masai Mara safari Lodges. Since there is a variety of water, The wildlife is scattered and not concentrated, this needs experience driver guides to help maneuver you around to find the wildlife in the Masai mara
