Welcome to Kenya
Kenya has two rainy seasons between March to June and October to November. Both European Winter and summer are suitable times for wildlife tourism because it’s dry in Kenya though it’s always busy. Some parts of Kenya tend to be cold especially around Mount Kenya and higher temperatures at the coast.
Kenya can be visited anytime but the best time is in the dry seasons especially between December to March. The Masai Mara Game reserve’s Wildebeest immigration can be witnessed between July and October.
Kenya’s Official Language is English while Swahili is The National Language. But we have guides who are well conversant with German and French.
