Best time to see the animals in Kenya?
End of June – September. If you’re planning your safari in Kenya and you want to guarantee seeing all your favorite animals, this is the time to go. This is when the animals migrate distances of around 2000km over to Kenya from Tanzania and ‘the greatest wildlife show on earth’ takes center stage. The great migration is supposedly the greatest mass movement of land mammals on the entire globe so, as you can imagine. Wildlife can also be easier to spot during June – September (the drier months) because there’s less foliage and bush and animals will head to watering holes.
