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.

Glamping Experience

Experiential travel is an authentic way to connect with nature.  Glamping is where stunning nature meets modern luxury.   Enjoy a beautiful & serene atmosphere with the beauty of the outdoors but with all the comforts and luxury of the indoors.  The real beauty of glamping is that you get time saved from camp setup and gear unpacking/packing.

This allows you to focus on why you’re camping in the first place: the hikes, family time and enjoying the outdoors. It also allows you to camp at destinations you might not otherwise be able to haul your gear to. So, if you have family members, children or a spouse that you’re wanting to transition into outdoor life, glamping provides that opportunity in the most unique way: there’s no learning curve. And the lobby tent of the campground has cool perks like game night, cooked meals, guided hikes/adventures, and most importantly, s’mores!

Canyons Road Tripping

The Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is breath taking to behold – and so is its size and scope. If you have not made it here yet, it’s time to do so. It is the biggest living thing on earth, spanning 2300km, with more than 600 types of coral. It is larger than the Great Wall of China and is visible from space – so we can understand why it’s hard to know where to get started. It does not matter if you want the chill life of soaking up the sun on golden beaches, or if you want to live it large with diving trips and helicopter tours. 

What is the best time to visit?

Like most natural wonders, timing is everything. Although the reef never sleeps – you will be best placed to visit the Great Barrier Reef between May and October when temperatures are still warm enough for swimming, underwater visibility is high with rainfall being minimal.
