Tips on how to plan your safari
Book months ahead if you're travelling to Kenya & East Africa during high season, especially during Christmas and European summer holidays.Most of the lodges are small and the available space is scarce, book your safari , many months in advance for peak periods to avoid dissapointment as the camps fill up fast in the peak season ( July - Sept and festive period)
When to Visit
Kenya is an all year round destination with something to offer anytime of the year. The Migration (July-October) is the busiest time but not really the only best time! To us anytime is a good time to visit Kenya. Even during the rainy seasons, it only rains for a couple of hours or at night and, when the sun is out – which is a good deal of the time, and often from dawn until dusk for weeks on end – it is always fierce as we are on the equator- dont forget your sunscreen.
What to bring
Most of the camps and lodges we work with, offer limited laundry and the easy to wash/dry clothes will be washed and ironed for you. Feel free to ask our Sales team for more information when you book.Plastic bags have been banned in Kenya. Being in possession of a plastic bag is now against the law and you are advised to avoid packing any plastic bags in your suitcases or in carry-on hand luggage before flying to Kenya
