Our Kenya family tours are available as part of our Kenya safari packages or can be customized to your needs.
Wildlife Safaris - Game Viewing
Above all it's the wildlife like the big five elephants, rhino, lion, leopard and buffalo that attracts the safari traveler to some of Kenya's best-known national parks, including the Masai Mara, Tsavo National Park, Amboseli National Park, and Lake Nakuru National Park - and naturally it's the incredible Great Wildebeest Migration that is the biggest attraction of them all. Others the likes of Samburu National Reserve are unique wildlife conservation areas offering unique and rare species of animals such as the Grevy Zebra, Somali Ostrich and Reticulated giraffe.
The flow of hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra from the Serengeti in Tanzania, to Kenya's Masai Mara and back is a phenomenon, once-in-a-lifetime sight - and well worth the effort to witness with predators following close by and vultures waiting to scavenge scraps from the predator's kill.
Kenya Safaris - Accommodation Choices
So, what to expect on a Kenya safari holiday? Well, you'll have the choice of staying in a range of accommodation in Kenya - anything from mobile safari tented camps to fine old lodges steeped in tradition the likes of Ngerende Island Lodge, Kichwa Tembo Tented Camp, or Finch Hattons in Tsavo National Park, private and exclusive Kenya Villas to spanking new, state-of-the-art hotels.
As for actually seeing the country, taking a Kenya safari tour is the best way to get a good overview of what this big, diverse country has to offer.
Kenya Safaris Best Time to Go
Understanding the natural cycle of wet and dry seasons in Kenya will help you plan your Kenya safaris, coastal explorations or cultural tours.
The best wildlife viewing months in Kenya are during the Dry season from late June to October. The wildebeest migration usually reaches the Masai Mara in July and remains until October when they move back to the Serengeti in Tanzania. Wildlife viewing is good year-round, but this can differ for some parks.
The beginning of January right the way through to the end of February signals the warmest period to visit Kenya with higher concentrations of animals congregating in popular tourist destinations, such as the Masai Mara, Lake Nakuru and Amboseli. This is a great time of year for divers to go to Kenya as visibility in the Indian Ocean is much clearer thanks to the lack of surface run off.
Early March still has some blue skies, although animals will already be in shorter supply due to the start of the rainy season which runs right through April and into May. Flooded roads, an abundance of vegetation and generally wet weather at this time makes for poor wildlife watching and slippery summits to Mount Kenya however, if you're looking to bag a bargain then this is certainly a time of year worth bearing in mind.
June sees the start of Kenya's dry season with waterholes and river banks teeming with animals and although prices will go up during July and August, being able to observe the wildebeest migration crossing the Masai Mara is well-worth it.
With the school holidays out of the way in September you'll find fewer visiting families and October through to November is a great time to go to Kenya if you're not tied to the kids.
