When to travel?
Kenya & Tanzania are year-round destinations; big cats don’t migrate, so you will likely see lions, cheetah and hopefully the elusive leopard and hundreds of elephants and more, any time of the year. The famed Great Migration of wildebeest and accompanying zebra are constantly on the move through the Serengeti and Masai Mara(travel June-Oct if you’d like to witness the migration). Birding is excellent year-round, from beautiful migratory birds to resident species. Low season (January-June and November) is also a fantastic time to escape the crowds, with equally amazing sightings and experiences.
