African Safari

Planning a luxury safari in Kenya involves choosing the right time of year to maximize wildlife sightings and enjoy favorable weather conditions. At Drunken Elephant Mara, we offer unparalleled safari experiences in the Masai Mara, ensuring every guest enjoys memorable encounters with Africa’s iconic wildlife.

Best Time to Visit Masai Mara for Wildlife Viewing

The Great Migration: One of the most spectacular natural events on the planet, the Great Migration sees millions of wildebeest, zebras, and other herbivores migrate between Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and Masai Mara in Kenya. The best time to witness this awe-inspiring spectacle in Masai Mara is from July to October. Drunken Elephant Mara organizes exclusive game drives and guided tours to witness the migration up close.

Dry Season (June to October): During Kenya’s dry season, wildlife congregates around water sources, making it easier to spot them during safaris. The weather is generally cooler, with clear skies perfect for photography and enjoying outdoor activities.

Green Season (November to May): Also known as the rainy season, the green season in Masai Mara offers lush landscapes and fewer tourists. It’s an ideal time for bird watching, as migratory birds flock to the region. Drunken Elephant Mara offers luxury accommodations with stunning views of the rejuvenated plains.
