Best months for Wildlife Viewing in Kenya:
If you wish to witness the annual Wildebeest migration then the best time to go on safari in Kenya, specifically the Masai Mara, is from July to October, . You should be aware that this is also the time when there will be most tourists, therefore lodges will get booked up early in the year and there are more safari vehicles on the roads, which in turn causes more disturbance to the wildlife.

The dry seasons January to March and July to October are also an excellent times for wildlife viewing, as the animals gather in huge numbers round water holes, rivers and lakes and the vegetation is less dense which makes for easier viewing of the wildlife from a distance.
