Best Time to Visit Kenya
The dry season is considered the best season to visit Kenya. Animals clustered around water points are easily visible through the dry grass and short savanna. In addition, all roads are passable. Thus, most tourists visit from December to March and July to August, while the locals prefer the months of June, September and October as they are quieter. During July and August Masai Mara hosts massive herds of wildebeest that migrate from the Serengeti plains in search of new pastures where they will stay for a few weeks before returning to the Tanzania. 

During the rainy season, the days are punctuated by sudden and unpredictable showers. Spectacular storms can easily give way to beautiful sunny weather.  The nights are often cool and the days warm, but not often hot.  Photographers will appreciate the beautiful lights of this period and the green surroundings.  Many species give birth during this period; however the fauna is less visible in the tall grass, and more dispersed because water is more abundant. Many side roads turn to mud, making travel more difficult. Often the journey can take a turn and become a true African adventure! The main advantage of traveling during this season is that there are far fewer people and vehicles, significantly reducing the cost at most accommodation. On the entire Kenya, especially in early April - end of June, during the rainy season the Big Five can still be spotted during the game drive. High season starts from July to end of October. Mid season starts from November to December 23rd - January 3rd to End of March.

Best Time to Visit Tanzania
The best wildlife viewing months in Tanzania are during the dry season from late June to October. The best chance of seeing the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti is during June and July and the time to see the wildebeest calving is late January to February. The Southern and Western Circuit Parks are best visited during the dry-season (June to October), unlike the more popular Northern Circuit Parks that can be visited year-round. Tarangire is the only exception, since its wildlife viewing is considerably better in the dry-season as well.


 Best time to go:

 June to October (All parks), June-July and January-February (Serengeti for the wildebeest migration & calving)

 High Season:

 July to March (northern circuit parks; they get crowded), July to October (southern and western circuit parks; they don't really get crowded any time of the year)

 Low Season:

 April and May (northern circuit parks still get quite a few visitors unlike the southern and western circuit parks, where many lodges close down)

 Best Weather:

 June to October (Little to no rainfall)

 Worst Weather:
