When to travel to Kenya?
There are two rainy seasons that you might prefer to avoid when travelling to Kenya. The short rains are in November and the long rains start at the end of March and go through to the end of May. Although, we will add that it is not an inconvenience, people are used to it and manage to carry on with rain or not, and driving on the muddy roads in a four-wheel drive can actually be a lot of fun. August and October are just about the best times, but to see the Wildebeest Migration in the Maasai Mara it’s advisable to come between July and September.
What to Pack
It is a good idea to bring mosquito repellent, sun cream, a hat, sunglasses, and malaria medication. The local supermarkets are quite well stocked, but it never hurts to come prepared with these essentials. However, if you are going on Safari, as you get into the highlands, it gets cooler, and during the early morning and late evenings you may need a sweater and trousers/jeans. If you are in Mombasa, it is always warm so bring shorts, short sleeves, and your swimming gear. It is also advisable to have some smart clothes. Generally, in Mombasa you will not be expected to wear a tie, but some restaurants still require long trousers and shirt sleeves. Nairobi also gets quite cold in the evenings during the rainy season, making a sweater a welcome garment.
Children allowed to travel
Children are very welcome to accompany their parents on safari and most lodges and camps in Kenya are very child friendly. However there are some very exclusive properties that do not accept children of upto a certain age. Please confirm with us these before you book your safari.
