Kenya is a “year-round destination” that may be visited at any time because it is located on the equator. The warmest months are late January through March, while July and August are the coolest. There are two rainy seasons: “the long rains,” which last for ten weeks from early April to early June, and “the short rains,” which last for six weeks from late November to early December. As the world’s weather patterns change, there may be periods of drought or heavy rainfall outside of the typical rainy season in some parts of Kenya when the rains completely fail to fall. But because it usually rains at night or in the morning instead of during the day, there may still be sunny days in between.

In most parks / conservancies you can normally guarantee that you will see the more common grazing animals such as buffalo, zebra, wildebeest, eland, giraffe, gazelles, impala and waterbuck. In addition lions, leopards and cheetahs are present in most parks, but are most easily seen in the Mara and the Mara Conservancies. Elephants are best seen in Amboseli and Rhino are often sighted in Nairobi National Park, Ol Pejeta Conservancy and Lake Nakuru Park.

If you are booking a road safari in Kenya you can choose between a 6 seater safari minivan or a closed-sided 4×4 safari landcruiser – both have pop-up roofs giving passengers great photo opportunities.

Generally safaris follow a typical pattern each day. Activities are mainly game drives in a pop up roof safari vehicle. In some destinations, you may undertake guided walks. The morning begins with a great breakfast before the first drive / activity which starts at or just after sunrise. There are great opportunities to see wildlife at this time since it is still fairly cool and animals are most active. Typically depending on the safari destination, you may choose to do a full day game drive or split the game drives into morning and evening game drive.The morning activity usually ends by late morning with guests returning to the camp / lodge for breakfast / brunch. Guests generally relax at the camp / lodge for the middle of the day. This is because the animals are quite inactive during the heat of the day – seeking shelter in the shade. Guests have lunch and enjoy the camp or lodge facilities (lounge / hammocks / swimming pool etc) or some properties offer short walks or visits to a hide.

The second main activity will be in the late afternoon and perhaps end at a scenic point to view the sunset (depending on safari destination). Some camps offer night drives after this. Guests later return to the camp / lodge for drinks and dinner.
