Best time to have Budget Kenya Safaris
Kenya is a great safari destination where millions of tourists visit every single year. The best time to visit Kenya for the safari holidays is during the dry season months.
Choosing when to visit Kenya is a great decision for tourists to make, however, there is no definite time that is best suitable for visiting Kenya.
This is because one person’s ideal weather can be another person’s disappointments. The dry season is generally the best time since there are very many days with high temperatures and low chances of rain.
During the dry season, the roads are also very passable making the parks easily reachable. The grass in the parks is also short which makes viewing easy, photography clear and therefore great memories on a wildlife game drive.
In the rainy season, the rain totals are high which makes it a less preferred time to visit Kenya, however, it is also a good time to visit since there are fewer visitors in the parks allowing you to enjoy the beauty with fewer interruptions. This is a great time to visit for budget travelers. The peak months with heavy rains are in March, April, and May.
From July to November is the best time to see the wildebeest in Masai Mara Game Reserve.
