Discover the Ideal Season

for Your Masai Mara Safari

Choose the best time to visit the Masai Mara for your dream safari! Understand the pros and cons of each season to find the experience that suits your goals:

Peak Season (July – October)

Witness the Great Migration at its height! Predator action, river crossings, and excellent wildlife viewing abound. Expect higher prices and busier crowds.

Shoulder Seasons (June, November-December)

Enjoy fewer crowds and lush landscapes. Excellent resident wildlife viewing, particularly predators, is likely. Some rain is possible, but sunshine still dominates, and you may find lower prices.

Low Season (January-March)

Experience the Masai Mara at its quietest. Potentially the most budget-friendly time, offering lush landscapes and unique opportunities to see newborn animals. Be prepared for rain, which might affect some activities

When to Visit for the Migration

If witnessing the Great Migration is your top priority, the peak season (July-October) is essential.

Beyond the Migration

The Masai Mara offers incredible wildlife year-round! Each season provides distinct beauty and advantages.
