The Best Time for a Safari to Kenya

Kenya Wildebeest Migration

The best time for a safari to Kenya is all through the year, while the most preferred period to visit is during the dry season which is split into two periods – January to March and July to October.

One of the most popular wildlife events in Kenya is the Serengeti Wildebeest Migration, which happens around July to October. During the migration, millions of zebra, antelope, and wildebeest storm their way en masse through Kenya and Tanzania. This is one of the most amazing wildlife experiences in the world. The specific time for the migration cannot be predicted as the animal’s migration is dependent on the rain.
