Best time to visit Kenya

Kenya is a country which you can visit all year if you wish, though most people tend to avoid the long rains in the months of April and May. As for when the best time is to visit, well that is dependant on your reason for coming, and hopefully the information below will help you decide.
On the whole though, if wildlife is your main reason for visiting Kenya, the peak dry season months of July to October is the very best time, not least because this is when the wildebeest migration is in the Masai Mara.
