Where is it?
The safari takes place in the Oserian Wildlife Sanctuary on the banks of Lake Naivasha and continues to the Masai Mara on the south west border of Kenya.
What is the best time of year to go?
This safari can be done any time of the year other than April, May and November when the camps are closed. Prime game viewing time is during the hottest part of the season - July, August and Septembe which is also when the Great Migration takes place.
Temperately, the country varies from alpine climates in the higher regions to the tropical temperatures typical of the Indian Ocean beaches. The weather is predictable and considered dry - over most of the country there are two mild rainy seasons annually: the ‘Short’ rains from late October through November and the ‘Long’ rains which occur from late March to early June.
Generally speaking, in the Highlands the climate is cool particularly on the high peaks of Mt Kenya and other surprisingly high summits along the Rift Valley; at lower altitudes temperatures can reach approximately 35°C during the day; the coast is humid and balmy.
