Natural World Kenya Safaris suggests these few considerations and family holiday packages to assist you in the planning of a family safari trip
Kenya is an all-year-round holiday safari destination, however some periods are better than others for specific attractions, activities and also relaxation . For most rewarding safaris and game viewing drives ,the cool and dry season from July – October is the best time coinciding also with the holiday season in Europe and the great wildebeest migration from the Serengeti in Tanzania to the Masai Mara game reserve in Kenya. November to March is also an excellent time to visit due to the dry and sunny weather and also opportunities to view game due to the sparse vegetation in the national parks as a result of the dry season. The Kenya coast beach resorts of Mombasa, Malindi, Watamu and Diani are at their best due to the favourable weather. Its also winter in Europe and what better holiday than to combine wildlife viewing, scenic nature and sunshine in Kenya
