FAQs - What are the weather patterns in Kenya?/What is the best time to visit the National parks and Game Reserves in Kenya?

We have long rains in April and May and the short rains in November. However these are not confined to the months allocated.

We have three (3) distinct tourist seasons:

High Season; this is between July-September, December-March. The weather is dry and the roads are accessible to the various Game Parks and National Reserves.

Low Season; April-June. Long rains are experienced about this time. Should you wish to travel at this time, please consult your Tour Operator accordingly e.g. what kind of vehicle to use.

Shoulder Season; October-November. Short rains can be experienced at this time.
