A diverse geography means a variable climate across the country but Kenya is considered a year-round destination for both safaris and beach holidays. Between January and March and between June and October, the weather is dry meaning the bush is less dense and wildlife gather at waterholes and rivers.

Between July and October, over two million animals – mostly zebra and wildebeest – migrate from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the greener pastures of the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya. The annual migration is one of the greatest spectacles in the natural world.

Absolutely, many of our guests do this. Kenya is unique in this respect: just an hour’s flight from the heart of the Maasai Mara and you can be enjoying a sundowner looking out over the Indian Ocean.

We recommend that you take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance before you travel. These details should be sent to us before you arrive so we can add your name to our AMREF cover which provides emergency airlift evacuation from remote areas.

Yes. There have been terrorist incidents in Nairobi and near the Somali border, but not in areas frequented by tourists such as the Maasai Mara. The threat of terrorism is global and Kenya, like Europe and the US, has stepped up its internal security accordingly. Lodges and camps are extremely well guarded.
