When is it best to visit Kenya?

The answer is relative. It depends on what you want to see and where you want to be. If you are interested in the Great Wildebeest Migration, mid year is the season. The weather is cool at this time. If you are interested in sunny beaches and coastal tides, then end of the year and January is the best time. The weather is perfect for the beach and the festive season will not disappoint. The National Parks are open through out the year.

The weather in Nairobi is generally cool. The days are not too hot and the nights are not too cold. Some say that Nairobi has the perfect weather in the world. However, it gets cold in June and July- though nothing compared to any snowy winter. It rains heavily from March to May. The rest of the year is pretty warm. Some days in September and end of year get really hot, however. Swimming is a popular activity in the city of Nairobi especially on weekend afternoons. You can locate several public swimming pools at an affordable fee. However, if you are thinking of relaxing in a heated pool, there are specific locations that offer that.

Almost everyone who visits East Africa says a little "I wish" as they board the plane back home. The trip was fantastic but it could be better. So, they probably swore never to repeat some of the mistakes or miss out on some of the opportunities that presented themselves while on safari. Here are a few that you may want to consider. If you have not taken your trip yet, you will be surprised how significantly more these things will make your experience more memorable if not magical.
