6 Days Masai Mara Wildebeest Migration Safari Holiday

Best Time to Visit the Masai Mara, Choosing when to go to the Masai Mara is something that needs to be carefully considered in order to meet your expectations. For general game viewing there is no real ‘best time’ to go; thanks to its abundant resident wildlife and temperate climate, the Masai Mara is widely regarded as a year-round safari destination. Its wide, open plains mean there is virtually always something to see, no matter what time of year you go to Kenya (although do heed our warning below about visiting during the annual long rains in April and May).

As the birthplace of safari, Kenya always promises incredible scenery, exceptional guides and good general gaming. Many visitors come for the Wildebeest Migration and the best time to visit the Masai Mara is between July, early August and end of November. Although due to varying rainfall patterns, the exact timing varies from year to year. Some years, the rains might be early and the wildebeest disappear more quickly; at other times, late rain means you will still find ‘stragglers’ (the last of the migrating wildebeest) hanging out on the Masai Mara with the ‘residents’ (those wildebeest who stay put year-round and don’t migrate at all).
