Best Time To Visit Kenya

The Best Time To Visit Kenya is during the Dry season from late June to October (these are the best wildlife viewing months). The wildebeest migration usually reaches the Masai Mara in August and remains until October when they move back to the Serengeti in Tanzania. Wildlife viewing is good year-round, but this can differ for some parks. See below to learn when to visit which park.


  1. Best Time – June to October, January to February (All parks)
  2. High Season – July to November, January and February (Some of the parks get very crowded especially the Masai Mara, Amboseli and Lake Nakuru)
  3. Low Season – March to May (Some lodges and camps in high rainfall areas close down)
  4. Best Weather – June to October (Little to no rainfall)
  5. Worst Weather – March, April and May (Peak of Wet season)


June to October –Dry Season

  1. Wildlife is easier to spot because the bush is thin and animals gather around water
  2. It’s unlikely to rain, the days are sunny with clear skies
  3. There are fewer mosquitoes
  4. July to October are the best months to see the wildebeest migration
  5. It gets very busy and crowded in the most popular parks


November to May –Wet Season

  1. The scenery is beautiful and green
  2. Rates drop because it’s the low season
  3. Newborn animals can be seen
  4. Migratory birds are present from September to April
