Safari Enquiry

The Rift Valley and western interior are hot by day, cool at night, and receive high rainfall.

May could be an excellent (more cost-effective) option for seasoned safari-goers because it offers the chance to experience a Kenya safari in a completely different light.

Although, this is not recommended for first-time safari enthusiasts because the chances of seeing much wildlife are slimmer.

  • May is by far the wettest month on the coast, with an average monthly rainfall of more than 300mm (12in), making it a very poor time for beach holidays or underwater activities.
  • The long rains continue into May in many Kenya safari destinations. As a result, game viewing can be challenging, as animals are dispersed away from water sources, and thick vegetation tends to reduce visibility. Minor tracks may be inaccessible when inundated with water.
