Why go to Kenya

Kenya is one of the African countries which most people desire to see and with reason, Kenya is Africa in a nutshell.

Much of Kenya falls within the Great Rift Valley, but this is only one of its many attractions. This country has many world famous national parks (most boasting the Big 5), fertile highlands, scorching deserts, mountains, pristine beaches and marine parks too. It also boasts a variety of ethnic groups of which the Masai with their intricate beadwork and striking red robes are probably the most well known. The great migration is probably the most graphic example of Kenya’s fame. Annually literally hundreds of thousands of Wildebeest, Zebra and other plains game migrate across the great savannah’s of the Serengeti and cross into the Mara in a seemingly never ending stream of wildlife. This exceptional natural phenomenon is world renowned and the sight is absolutely awe-inspiring.

When to go to Kenya

Kenya has an extremely temperate climate despite its close proximity to the equator. It generally has daytime temperatures of about 20 – 25 degrees Celsius (68 – 77 degrees Fahrenheit), but the mountainous regions can be a lot cooler, while the coastal areas quite humid.

There are two rainy seasons in Kenya, the long rains of March and April and the short rains of October through to December. During both rainy seasons, the park roads can become fairly impassable and of course the mosquitoes will be out in full force. For game viewing the dry season is the best as this forces the animals to congregate at waterholes, which ensures that sightings during certain times of the day will be guaranteed. From June to October the annual wildebeest migration takes place , with thousands of animals streaming into the Masai Mara National Reserve from the Serengeti in July and October . During the long rains from March – end of May , the low season things are much quieter and you can get some good deals , this is also true during the short rains from October to December.  For updated weather forecasts across Africa, please visit www.africanweather.net .
