Kenya has attracted its sympathy since the early explorers and brave settlers returned by telling stories about the endless plains passing the antelope, the lions with the negative reputation of sometimes attacking people, mountain peaks and perfect beaches. The country is without a doubt one of the most famous safari destinations in Africa, offering unrivaled experiences throughout its natural parks and reserves: the masai mara with its charming collines, the herds of elephants like Sri Lanka and the spectacular landscapes surrounding the Great Rift Valley. The best time for a safari is in the middle of the year, when the antelope migrate across Kenya – an amazing sight, with millions of animals on their epic journey across the continent in search of new food reserves.
The diversity of the relief is reflected in distinct cultural groups, even if the Maasai population are the most interested tourists in search of the classic images of African identity in Kenya. The coastline offers its own treasures, with excellent beaches and resorts, many coral reefs to explore, all easily accessible via flights to Mombula, the country’s oldest and second largest city. Visitors coming from the Northern Hemisphere come here to take a break from the cold climate, and Kenya’s almost perfect tropical climate provides so many sought-after sunny days throughout the year. Like Cameroon, Kenya could, on that day, be called “Africa in one country”.
The best time to visit Kenya is between June and September, the winter months here, when both temperatures and rainfall are at their lowest. February and March can be very hot and humid, even if it is the perfect time to admire the great transfers.
