Best Time to Visit Kenya
The best time to visit Kenya remains the months of January to March. During this time of the year, the weather remains hot, dry and comfortable for bird watching on the Rift Valley lakes and game viewing at popular wildlife reserves. But it makes sense to make flights and accommodation bookings in advance as the country sees a huge tourist rush during the peak travel months. Though the rainy months of April to June and October to December are not the best time to visit the country, one may easily find cheap air tickets and accommodation deals during this time.
