  • Is Kenya safe to visit?
    Yes, more than a million tourists visit Kenya every year and most visits are trouble-free.

An overnight stay at a reputable hotel or an organized visit to one of the many attractions in or around the city is generally safe.

    The usual seasons in Kenya, along with many other countries in the world have become quite unpredictable. However the below are our usual seasons. January & February – During these months a dry spell in the rainy season occurs with less rainfall. How long the spell lasts and when it takes place, exactly, is unpredictable. March, April & May – ‘Long rains’: These months get the most rain and there can be a downpour on a daily basis, although it seldom lasts the whole day. It’s very cloudy, especially in the highlands, including Aberdare NP and Laikipia Plateau. Humidity is higher and will be particularly noticeable in the coastal regions. June, July, August, September & October – These are the coldest months. Temperatures vary significantly per region and because of their difference in altitude. Daytime temperatures are usually around 23°C/73°F at higher altitudes, such as the Maasai Mara, and 28°C/82°F at lower altitudes, such as the coastal areas. During the Dry season the sky is clear and days are sunny. Early morning temperatures at higher altitude are typically 10°C/50°F. It is advisable to pack warm clothing as morning game drives in open vehicles will be cold. There is very little rain in most of the country so these are the least humid months, making it the best time to stay at one of Kenya’s beautiful beaches. November & December – ‘Short rains’: A period of unpredictable, short rains between November and December lasts about a month. The rain is sometimes heavy, but mostly falls in the late afternoon or evening, and will seldom have a negative impact on your safari.
