This amazing safari destination can be visited year round and works really well with combining a few days in Tanzania (Serengeti / Ngorongoro Crater). Kenya is an amazing year round safari destination and offers a great combined safari with Tanzania (Serengeti / Ngorongoro Crater) or trekking the gorillas in Rwanda / Uganda.
When is the best time to visit this amazing area….if you want to experience the famous ‘’migration’’ then you need to visit between June and October. However, this is high season and this comes with high prices. If you are a little more budget conscious then November, April and May will give you an excellent value for money safari.
What is the draw card to visit Kenya or Tanzania during June and October? ‘’The Migration’’. It is the largest movement of animals in the world and it only happens in East Africa. Just imagine…. the grasslands of the Masai Mara in Kenya or the Serengeti Plains of Tanzania covered by millions of moving wildebeest, zebra and topi as far as the eye can see; and then followed by the predators. There are amazing wildife encounters and photographic opportunities.
What other encounters can you experience ..... Kenya is a birdwatchers dream destination, with more than 1000 species recorded, Lake Nakuru is a breeding ground for flamingo with up to two million birds found on mass – quite incredible sight, Mount Kenya is the second highest mountain in Africa and features a number of permanent glaciers, plus the best views of Mount Kilimanjaro are from Amboseli National Park.
Don't miss this exciting safari destination!
