A Diverse Tapestry of Wildlife
Beyond the Big Five, Kenya is home to a diverse tapestry of wildlife that populates its varied ecosystems. You can expect to encounter giraffes gracefully browsing the treetops, cheetahs sprinting across the plains in pursuit of prey, and hippos wallowing in serene waterholes. The country’s national parks and reserves are teeming with an array of antelope species, zebras, wildebeests, hyenas, and an impressive variety of birdlife. Our guides are not only experts at tracking and spotting these animals but also passionate about sharing their knowledge and insights with you, enhancing your safari experience.
Great Wildebeest Migration
One of the most awe-inspiring natural spectacles on Earth, the Great Wildebeest Migration, takes place in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve. This annual migration sees millions of wildebeests, zebras, and other herbivores traveling in search of fresh grazing lands, attracting predators like lions and crocodiles. Witnessing this dramatic event is a bucket-list experience, and our safari itineraries are thoughtfully designed to coincide with the migration’s movements, ensuring you have a front-row seat to this remarkable wildlife phenomenon. Whether you’re a seasoned wildlife enthusiast or a first-time safari-goer, Kenya’s astounding biodiversity promises unforgettable encounters and photographic opportunities.
Choosing the best time for your Kenyan safari largely depends on your preferences and what you hope to experience. Kenya offers excellent safari opportunities year-round, but understanding the seasons can help you tailor your trip to match your interests.
Dry Season – June to October
For many travellers, the dry season, which spans from June to October, is the preferred time for a Kenyan safari. During this period, wildlife congregates around water sources, making it easier to spot animals. The weather is typically dry and cool, with sunny days and cool nights, making for comfortable game drives and outdoor activities. This season also aligns with the Great Wildebeest Migration in the Masai Mara, a spectacle you won’t want to miss.
Green Season – November to May
The green season, also known as the rainy season, runs from November to May. While it may not be the driest time to visit, the lush landscapes, vibrant flora, and the birth of newborn animals make this a unique and beautiful time for safaris. Bird enthusiasts will find this season particularly appealing as migratory bird species visit Kenya. Additionally, accommodation rates are often more budget-friendly during the green season, making it an attractive option for travellers looking for value without compromising on wildlife experiences. Ultimately, the best time for your Kenyan safari depends on your preferences, whether you seek prime game-viewing opportunities or wish to witness Kenya’s natural beauty at its greenest.
At Africa Kenya Safaris, we are deeply committed to wildlife conservation and sustainable tourism practices. Our mission is to not only provide unforgettable safari experiences but also to actively contribute to the preservation of Kenya’s incredible biodiversity and ecosystems.

We work closely with local and international NGOs that are dedicated to protecting Kenya’s wildlife and natural habitats. These partnerships enable us to channel funds and resources into critical projects aimed at safeguarding endangered species, conserving vital ecosystems, and combatting poaching and habitat degradation.
We firmly believe that education is key to fostering a culture of conservation. That’s why we actively engage in educational initiatives for both tourists and local communities. During our safaris, our expert guides provide valuable insights into the behaviour and conservation status of the wildlife you encounter. We also collaborate with local schools and communities to raise awareness about the importance of wildlife conservation and environmental stewardship. By supporting education, we hope to inspire future generations to become passionate advocates for Kenya’s wildlife and natural heritage.
