Best Hunting Season In Kenya
Undoubtedly the best time to visit the Masai Mara is during the legendary Great Migration from July to October.
The Masai Mara dry season runs from June to November. This is when game viewing is at its best. The famous Great Wildebeest Migration begins around July and is in full swing by August.
The wildebeest mill about the Mara until October when they begin to leave with some stragglers departing as late as November.
Be aware that the movements of the Great Wildebeest Migration are dependent on East Africa’s seasonal rainfall patterns. With all things ‘wild’ timing comes with a bit of luck and it’s best to carefully consult and plan with one of our safari experts.
