Project Description

THE BEST TIME TO VISIT MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE.
The best wildlife viewing months in Kenya are during the Dry season from late June to October.
The wildebeest migration usually reaches the Masai Mara in July and remains until October when they move back to the Serengeti in Tanzania.
THE WORST TIME TO AVOID VISITING MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE.
The Masai Mara offers good wildlife viewing throughout the year, but the rainy months (March, April, November, and December) make some of the roads difficult to navigate, and wildlife might be more difficult to spot.
The driest months (from late June to October) are the best for wildlife viewing because the vegetation is thinner and animals gather around rivers and water holes.
The wildebeest migration and the river crossings, in particular, are difficult to time, but your best chance to witness this spectacle is in late September and October.
