July - September 2020

Great Holidays, Unique Destinations, Unforgettable Experiences

Kenya’s “cool” season sets in with July, with the highlands sometimes rather grey, but wildebeest, migrating from the Serengeti, start arriving in the Maasai Mara

Maasai Mara

From the dry plains of the southern Serengeti in Tanzania the promise of rain and fresh grass brings more than 1.3 million wildebeest together into a single massive herd, which then moves its way across the border into the Kenyan side of the ecosystem.

The Maasai Mara offers the best view of the last of the great migrations left on the planet during the months of August and September.

The clearing skies of September signals the start of hot, dry weather with little chance of rain – and fewer visitors – making the latter part of this month a good time for a quieter safari.

At the coast…

This is the best season for a spectacular wreck diving experience at Diani Beach, or visit Wasini Island on a traditional dhow for snorkeling or dolphin (and Humpbacked whales) spotting.

For serious anglers, fishing season starts in late July, early August when yellow fin tuna, dorado, some sail fish and wahoo are plentiful.

Great Seasonal Alternatives

Mt. Kenya Climb

Test your limits by climbing Mt. Kenya, the second highest point in Africa! With its snowcapped peaks 5,199 m. high, Mt. Kenya is certainly one of the most beautiful mountains anywhere (best time to climb: June-September).


Grab your binoculars, bird hats, and checklists as we head out to discover the coastal birds of Mombasa Island!
