When to go:
When to go: The best months for travelling to Kenya are
June through the end of October and then December through
the end of March.
If you are wanting to see the Great Migration then I
suggest the months of July, August and September, these are
also the busiest times along with the Christmas holidays as
this is when school holidays fall.
If you prefer to travel when the game is still superb but
it is not so busy then I recommend the following months,
June, September, October, November, February, March, April
