It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Kenya

Peak Season: December to early March

This time of year sees dry, hot weather (temperatures average 80°F) and the greatest concentration of wildlife in the reserves. Unfortunately, it’s also the busiest (and the priciest) season with a fair amount of tourist traffic in the game parks.

Off Season: Late-March to May; October to November

This is the rainy season. There are far fewer tourists and prices are cheaper, but the wildlife viewing is not nearly as good as it is during the high season.

Sweet Spot: June to September

The weather is still dry, but it’s cooler than in high season (70-75°F is common). This is also when the annual wildebeest migration takes place.
