Dear Partners and guests,
We are delighted to share some of the best months to visit Kenya and some secret gem locations worth seeing.
Kenya is a wonderful place to visit all year round, as we are located on the equator. But there are some months, that not everyone knows are secretly the best to go on a safari adventure.
We propose a tailor-made special addition safari plan to discover Kenya when tourism is quiet, nature thrives and animals come to life. We share with you an excellent safari package, where we personally love to go during the low season and experience the true potential of African safaris.
Kindly ask us for detailed programs, inquiries and rates ♡
WHEN TO TRAVEL?
NOVEMBER and the FIRST HALF OF DECEMBER. FEBRUARY till JUNE.
REASONS WHY OFF-SEASON SAFARIS ARE THE BEST?
We are sharing with you these months because they have the most potential and great qualities.
We consider these months kind of a hidden secret - you can escape the crowds and high prices, yet see plenty of wildlife! This is the African summer. Nature and plants sprout and become a green paradise. Migratory birds flock to the area in symphony with the rest of the wildlife. These are the best months for bird watchers and bird photographers. The high season drops at this time of the year, which brings back peace and quiet to nature. Many animal species birth their children, you're likely to see plenty of born babies in the wild, with plenty of predator activity.
On the coast of Kenya, the weather is warm and sunny. For divers and snorkelers, these are the best months to see larger marine creatures such as whale sharks, manta rays, and various sharks, dolphins, and turtles.
As the park fees are rising to 200$ a day in the Maasai Mara and accommodation prices rising drastically, off-season months are the time to get a full Kenya experience, at an excellent price.
Affordable, unique, peaceful and plenty to see and do!
1 WEEK IN THE LOW SEASON MONTHS
Amboseli | Mount Kilimanjaro
Amboseli National Park is well known for its big-tusked elephants and the great Mount Kilimanjaro.
Amboseli is green, sprouting with small flowers, already healed from the busy summer months of mass tourism. Animals are giving birth to their young, jumping around and playing in the grasslands. Kilimanjaro is surrounded by a fresh and peaceful ecosystem. The November landscape and view of Amboseli are truly special.
Tawi Lodge Amboseli:
Set plum in the heart of its own private conservancy and in one of the richest game areas in Kenya, Tawi Lodge is an idyllic retreat whilst exploring the Amboseli ecosystem on the lower foothills of Kilimanjaro.
This Eco award-winning lodge combines unpretentious comfort with subtle accents of style, traditional East African hospitality, and a sense of warmth and genuine welcome, embracing traditional East African hospitality with our roots extending deep into our heritage here.
Take a camel walk through nature and observe the animals from a close distance. This is truly an exciting and fun experience for all.
The park forms the largest protected area in Kenya and is home to most of the larger mammals, and vast herds of dust –red elephant, Rhino, buffalo, lion, leopard, ...
Camps and Lodges in Tsavo are usually fully booked during the high season, so now is your time to enjoy the park. In Tsavo due to its dry climate, animals love to gather around water halls, which gives you the opportunity to sit back and enjoy their presence.
The Hildana Lodge lies at the foot of the Taita Hills; enveloped in a private 5,000-acre sanctuary. This small, exclusive property promises total privacy and unfettered access to amazing wildlife and birding opportunities.

Spend a day on the farm with a guided tour and learn about how this incredible eco-friendly plant is processed and used, and how it helps our local communities.
Paradise on earth. These African summer months are truly the best time to be on the beach in Diani. The water is crystal blue and still, as there is less wind. The sun warms up the sea to perfect temperatures. These are THE month for water activities: snorkelling, diving, whale shark adventures and dhow trips.
