Kenya Safaris and Tours

Quintessential Africa - Kenya is famous for its high concentrations of wildlife. Lying on the equator, Kenya shares common borders with Tanzania and Uganda, which make up the region of "East Africa". Kenya is roughly the size of Texas or Spain. There are over 40 tribal ethnic groups, each with their own dialect though most people in the country speak Kiswahili as well as their own tribal language. English is commonly spoken in the major towns and at all lodges and hotels. It hard to rival the range travel choices Kenya offers from scenic tours to cultural immersion; from lounging on pristine beach to adventure travel; from a broad range of sporting activities to an endless list special interest opportunities.

If you are looking for an itinerary that includes not just Kenya, but which also includes other countries within East Africa, check out our EAST AFRICA SAFARIS.

Kenya's climate varies across the country, from the tropical humidity of the coast, the dry heat of the savannah or semi-arid areas and the cool air of the highlands. Temperatures in these areas are fairly constant year round with an average of 27°C at the coast, 21°C to 27°C in the hinterland, while in Nairobi and the highlands over 5,000 ft, the daytime temperatures normally range between 19°C and 24°C.

Most parts of the country experience two rainy seasons: the long rains falling over a ten week period between April and June, and the short rains over a five week period between November and December. The rain tends to fall mainly at night and is usually a short and heavy tropical downpour.  Rain may occasionally fall outside of the normal rainy seasons.

In the highland areas north of Nairobi, around the Lakipia Plateau, it may get chilly at night or in the early mornings - especially June, July, August when temperatures are cooler - so it is recommended that visitors pack some items of warm clothing.

High season is from January to March when it is warm and dry. Wildlife is generally found around the seasonal water holes during these months, so game viewing is great. 

Green (Rainy) Season is typically April and May. A positive point during these times is that the lower numbers of tourists, so the travelling experience is more exclusive and the rains do not hinder game viewing.

Low Season - is from October to December.  This is when East Africa typically has its shorts rains.
