Tips

  • Animals are easily camouflaged in the surroundings so look for moving shapes, behavioural changes in other animals and listen for the sound of snorts or splashing water.
  • The main tourist season is during the hot months of December and January and the dry, cool months from June to August.
  • If you’re visiting during the rainy season which is from March to May, some of the national parks may be closed so check with your tour operator first.
  • August to October is the best time to watch the great Wildebeest migration in Kenya.
  • Choose a wide brimmed hat with a tie or strap for protection in windy conditions.
  • Neutral colored clothes work best as it will help you blend in with the environment.
  • Most areas do not accept women wearing shorts or short skirts so opt for long skirts or slacks.
  • In addition to the big 5 (buffalo, lion, leopard, elephant and rhino) keep on the lookout for giraffes and zebras. Lake Nakuru is a good place to spot rhinos and zebras.
