Kenya is the original home of ‘safari’. It is here in Kenya that safaris were born, the root of safari expeditions. The term safari is a Kiswahili word,
a Bantu language spoken in east Africa, which means ‘to travel’ or journey.
The best Kenya safaris as they are known today has a long history, that continue to amaze many.
Karen Blixen said: ‘If there was one more thing I could do, It would be to go on safari once again’’.
It is here in Kenya that Earnest Hemingways enjoyed a Kenya safari and composed his famous book,
‘Green Hills of Africa’’ in 1933.
A safari in Kenya is an adventure of a lifetime, that everyone should have a chance to experience it.

What is the best time to go on safari? The answer to this question is varied. This is because all the seasons have their advantages and disadvantages. Each traveler will find a time that fits them, and it will be actually wrong to say that one season is not good. Having said that, let’s look at the various seasons and what each is better for or vice versa.
January-March: this is a relatively dry season. The abundance of Kenya wildlife is there, but in the drier times, they are more concentrated along water ways, rivers and swamps. It is important to understand that the cycles of wildlife move with food availability, and this season is one of the best times for game drives.
However, be ready for some dust, although this has been changing with shifted weather patterns. Lately we have had showers coming in as early as January and February.
This is one of the best Kenya safaris time. The advantages of this period, you see a lot of wildlife, the lodges have fewer guests, and even in the parks you have fewer vehicles at each sighting. It could be very dusty, and the sun could be very hot to spend the whole day out. Make sure not to miss the early morning game drives.
April-June: From the end of March, (sometimes midway), we have heavy rains. Wildlife is abundant all over. The places are a lush-green carpet and such a wonderful sight to behold. You have the advantage of being almost alone at a sighting.
Temperatures are relatively cool, and most cats do not take too much cover. However, your game drives could be limited to main roads only, because it could be soggy and swampy. Hotels and lodges are usually near empty, so here again you have their full attention. Be ready for heavy afternoon showers, although days you can have the rains in morning too, but not too often.
July-September: This is both the best Kenya safaris season, and the worst. Let me explain….It is the time that almost all work places and schools are on holiday. So almost all household can afford to go on a planned family holiday. It is a time that everyone is yearning for some fresh air, on a holiday.
Interestingly, it is the same time that we have wildebeest migration from Serengeti in Tanzania, to Masai Mara. This is what I meant by it’s the best time, because this migration is such a beautiful thing to see. Millions and millions of wildebeests and Zebras fill almost every spot in the Mara. It is such a nice time to do a hot air balloon over Masai Mara.
The negative of this season is that every place is full of tourist. The parks are full of safari vehicles, while the hotels are also quite crowded.
October-December: It is a great time too. With luck you can have some wildebeests still around, though that depends on the weather. For example, if there is more showers, the wildebeest could delay.
If it gets dry fast, or if there are more rains in Tanzania side, they could leave a bit earlier. Remember, their cycle is dependent on food availability. The advantage is that you have less vehicles on sightings, less crowded hotels.
There is almost no disadvantage in this season, especially if you are out to spend time with the wildlife. It is important to that its only the Wildebeest and Zebras that migrate. Furthermore, there are resident wildebeest and resident zebras that do not migrate. Also note, migration takes place only in Masai Mara-Serengeti, not all Kenya safari parks.
Masai Mara safari is a trip to Masai Mara national reserve, located in Narok County. ‘’Masai Mara’’ are two words that refer to the ‘’spotted’’ Land of the ‘’Masai’’ community. This is a community in both Kenya and Tanzania. Masai Mara is the land belonging to the Maasai community in Narok County, in Kenya.
The Masai people have been living in harmony with the wildlife. Years back, you could see Masai cows being grazed inside the park. But the aspect of conservation came in and this had to stop. But in addition to that, the community population has grown a lot and in same measure, their wildlife has multiplied over the years.
Masai Mara is one of the best Kenya safaris destinations. Basically the reserve belongs to the Masai community of Narok county, Kenya. It is a communal land that has been defined as a National reserve. Though it belongs to them, it is a national heritage that hosts a myriad of wildlife species. They do feel and have great attachment to the land as a general rule, even the lands that borders the reserve cannot be sold to outsiders except to their fellow community members.
So a safari to Masai Mara is journey to this special National reserve in Masai land. It is one of the most famous wildlife areas, not only in Kenya, but worldwide. It has been said that it is the best place to see lions in the wilds, in their natural habitat. But here you don’t see lions only; you see such a big variation of species, from glazers, browsers, and carnivores. Others are nocturnal and rarely seen especially because some areas night drives are strictly forbidden.
Almost all safaris in Kenya end up touching Masai Mara in the national reserve, and rightly so. Furthermore, it is one of the parks in Kenya that has the biggest concentration of wildlife. Be ready to count more than 20 different species in just one hour of game drives. It is also the park that cats can been seen with relative each and concentration.
The Masai community, who share this park with the wildlife, have such a rich culture, and you cannot talk of Masai Mara and leave the community out. They are one of the smaller communities in Kenya. But because of their long term resistance to change, they have become the most famous tribes of all, especially in the tourism sector. Their attachment to livestock is one that is admirable, because they value their livestock more than anything else.
The annual Masai Mara safari for the wildebeest migration takes place in Masai Mara. Masai Mara borders Serengeti national reserve in Tanzania. This migration has been one of the most famous aspects of Masai Mara. The phenomenon has made Kenya safaris stand tall as many visitors flock to Kenya to witness the migration. The masses fill the savannas giving it such a beautiful scene.
It is usually one of the best hunting times for all the cats as it is easy to hunt and make wildebeest kills. The savannas of Masai Mara by then have very high grass, making sure that the masses have more than enough to eat as they move.
It is important to note that it is a time for masses of clients to the reserve, so it is highly recommended to make your bookings much in advance. It is one of the best Kenya safaris time, so plan in advance.
Fortunately also, they main Mara river that serves both Kenya and Tanzania sides is usually overflowing with water. The water wildlife, hippos and crocodiles can be watched with much ease as they bask on the river banks.
All our safaris are eco-friendly holidays. Your travel companions and guides are professionally trained nature enthusiast. You will definitely learn so much from them. And all we ask from you is if you have to do anything in the nature reserves and parks, do it ONLY with your camera.
