When is the best time to Visit Kenya?

The best time to visit Kenya is from June to October. In these months, there is little rain and the temperatures are moderate. Kenya's beaches, on the other hand, are a popular year-round beach vacation destination. Most Kenya safari destinations are at their finest between January and the end of March. The weather is pleasant and largely dry, and game-watching is excellent. A visit during the rainy season, from mid-March to June, then again between November and December, is also recommended. You'll escape peak-season crowds and benefit from reduced off-season safari lodge rates in Kenya
