KENYA SAFARI INFORMATION
Kenya is an all year round safari destination, offering outstanding game viewing, each season has its particular benefits.
The best time to visit Kenya is when the Migration is in the Masai Mara from July to October. Kenya is based on the equator and so the temperature is good all year round. The main rainy season, consisting mainly of afternoon thundershowers is from March to May although travelling during this time is real value for money.
The best times for viewing animals are in the cool hours of the early morning and late afternoon. The usual safari routine in Kenya will be to rise early to a cup of tea or coffee before leaving camp. You will then either return for breakfast or have a ‘bush breakfast’ and return to your ‘home’ just before or in the heat of the day.
Guests usually return to have lunch in camp followed by a siesta or just relaxing around the camp. You then head out on safari again after tea in the afternoon. You then return to camp for dinner. Your guide will be with you to plan your day, tell you about Kenya, our history, traditions, the area you are visiting, what you see; he will take you to the loveliest places; he will look after any formalities or negotiations with the local people, and take care of your safety and comfort.
All the guides we recommend speak English, their tribal language and Kiswahili, the common language in Kenya; they are all proficient in bush craft, and can tell you about the animals, identify the birds and help you learn more about the world around you.
