When is the best time to visit Lake Nakuru?


June to October and January to February. The wildebeest migration reaches the Masai Mara in July and remains until October - when they move back to the Serengeti in Tanzania. However, wildlife is easier to spot since the animals gather around the water source as well as on the rivers. Newborn animals can also be seen.
