Kenya is one of the most popular safari destinations in the world, and with good reason.

The country is home to some of the best national parks and reserves in the world, including the Masai Mara which is a haven for Africa’s big cats and Amboseli National Park, home to one of the largest populations of elephants in the world.

Best Time to Visit Kenya: The summer months between June and September are best for both weather and game viewing. This is the country’s dry season so days are warm and sunny. The famous great migration also takes place at this time of year.

Even so, between October and February is also a lovely time to visit. The short rains occur around October, turning the grass a lush green.
