African Safaris in Kenya

Book a Safari in the Low SeasonĀ  Kenya & East Africa

In East Africa, the low-season coincides with the rainy season and in most popular safari destinations there are two rainy seasons a year. Low seasons usually run from April – June and October – November. But with global warming, the rainy season is often sunny. It can be a great time for an affordable African safari in Kenya.

Pros:

  • Low season prices will save you least 25% on any safari.
  • You avoid the crowds.

We traveled to the Serengeti during rainy season and because it was considered rainy season we had the park to ourselves and had good weather!

Cons:

  • The rains mean that wildlife doesn’t have to limit their wanderings to a few available water sources. So you may have trouble spotting the animals from your safari vehicle.
  • During the rainy season the foliage camouflages the animals. Despite this though you’ll still get to see plenty of wildlife during the low-season.
  • The roads to and in some of the game parks could be washed out. Ask if the tour operator is using 4x4s otherwise you will be on the side of the road for a long time.
