Best time to travel to Kenya

Located on the equator, Kenya is warm year-round, however expect it to be cool in the early morning and at night — particularly if you are on a safari.

There are two rainy seasons — from April to June and from October to December; it is typically dry and hot the rest of the year. The annual wildebeest migration in the Masai Mara occurs between July and October, depending on the timing of the rainy seasons.
