Are you planning on booking a trip to Kenya? Then you’ve come to the right place. Here you can learn useful tips, including the best time to go and the most beautiful and interesting areas to visit, to ensure that your holiday is the best that it can be.
When Should I Book My Kenya Holiday?
Wildlife viewing in Kenya can be seen year-round so you’ll never be disappointed, however if there are certain things that you want to see and do then you’ll need to plan your trip accordingly.
The Great Migration is one of the greatest natural spectacles in the world so we don’t blame you for having this on your bucket list. Travel to Kenya any time during July and October and you’ll catch this truly remarkable sight as the wildebeest come through the Masai Mara.
If you love diving then be sure to visit Kenya at the beginning of the year. The Indian Ocean is much clearer in January and February due to the lack of surface run off, therefore marine life will be more visible. This is also the warmest time of year in Kenya and more animals tend to congregate in the Masai Mara, Lake Makura and Amboseli, so you’re likely to see a multitude of wildlife at these popular tourist destinations.
However, the country promises amazing wildlife sightings in abundance all year round, so you’ll never be disappointed with your Kenya holiday.
Where Shall I Stay?
Almanara, Diani Beach
One of Kenya’s main tourist attractions is Mombasa. Just south of this city you’ll find Almanara, a small resort away from the crowds, making it the perfect place to unwind after action-packed days of adventure and safari experiences.
The stunning Diani Beach will be on your doorstep and whilst you’ll no doubt want to do nothing but relax at the private villas here, there are various activities available in and around this intimate, luxury resort. Almanara is a hidden gem that’s waiting to be discovered.
Governors’ Camp, Masai Mara
The Masai Mara in Kenya is a must-visit and Governors’ Camp is situated in a location that’s perfect for game-viewing. And that’s not all. Fancy a hot air balloon ride over the Masai Mara? Then you’ll be close enough to arrive at the launch site for a magical morning ride.
Your stay at the deluxe, tented Governor’s Camp will not disappoint, particularly as you’re certain to see sightings of hippo and crocodile along the Mara River.
Cottar's 1920 Camp, Masai Mara
Cottar's 1920 is one of the Masai Mara’s finest camps and ideal for those seeking solitude & privacy. This provides easy access for day and night game drives to the Masai Mara Game Reserve and cultural interactions with the Masai community.
Lewa Safari Camp, Laikipia
This authentic camp is set in the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, a sanctuary for endangered black rhinos and some of the world’s last remaining Grevy’s zebra, therefore you know you’ll see sightings of both if you choose to stay here.
Lewa Safari Camp offers game drives as well as walks and horse and camel riding, so you’ll never be short of things to do. If you want superb game viewing and spectacular views then you’ve hit gold with Lewa Safari Camp.
Lewa Wilderness, Laikipia
Laikipia is home to Lewa Wilderness, a family-run lodge that will make you feel more than welcome thanks to its friendly hosts.

You can enjoy activities such as walks, horse riding and bush flying in a biplane, a truly unique experience. This private safari venture will be remarkable from start to finish and by staying here you’ll automatically be supporting the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and all the efforts of the conservation and community development.
