WHEN TO GO
Kenya enjoys pleasant climates throughout the year; days are comfortable while evenings can be cooling depending on geographical location.
Dry season from June to October and January to February is also the high season for wildebeest migration.
Midseason with short rains take place in Oct and Nov while March to May is low season with long rains.
A local guide and driver is recommended for experiencing its vast and stunning landscapes at leisure whilst being able to interact more intimately with the local community.
Internal domestic flights are also available and can help cut travelling time.
LOCAL INSIDER TIP
We love Rock and Sea, a unique hideaway located on the Kenyan coast. Offering a rustic yet private experience, get there by boat across Mida Creek.
Kenya’s commitment to wildlife conservation and anti-poaching practices has placed it as one of the world’s best places to view wildlife in their natural habitats. Explore the wilderness with spectacular safari drives through the vast savannah landscapes of Masai Mara. View the beautiful dancing pink flamingos at Lake Nakuru or marvel at herds of elephants sweeping across a dusty plain below the snow-capped peak of Kilimanjaro at Amboseli National Park. For a more intimate experience with nature, base yourself at one of the private reserves or conservancies dotted throughout the country.
CULTURE, TRADITIONS, PEOPLE
Meet the people of the land and interact with diverse ethnic tribes. Revel in their stories and ways of life, learn how they grapple with weaving the demands of modern life and preserving traditions of yesteryears.
Partake in events and festivals where culture, heritage and traditions are celebrated. Get involved with local community work or through volunteering or conservation projects. Train and run in Iten where you can interact with world-class Kenyan runners and other running enthusiasts from around the world.
BEACHES AND COASTAL LIFE
Be blessed by the elements of the sun, sand and the sea of Kenya’s stunning coastal beaches. Swim in azure blue crystal clear waters or sunbathe on miles of powder-fine white sand beaches. Dine on fresh daily-caught seafood or laze in the soothing sea breeze of the Indian Ocean. For the active and adventurous, learn to kite-surf, snorkel in marine parks or kayak through mangrove forests. Create your own unforgettable beach experience in one of Kenya’s best hidden gems.
