SEASON

JANUARY - MARCH: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Between the short rains of November and the long rains of April - May it is the warmest time of the year with beautiful days. Traditionally the high season before the "migration fixation" offering wonderful weather, great value and fantastic sightings.

APRIL - JUNE: GREEN SEASON & GREAT VALUE
The rains start in April - May, an excellent time to visit NORTHERN Kenya - Sasaab - as the dry arid area springs to life and offers excellent light for photography.
Sala's Camp is closed from 19 April - 31 May | Giraffe Manor is closed 24 April - 11 May

JULY - SEPTEMBER: PEAK SAFARI SEASON
This time fits with many annual holidays and is a wonderful time to be on safari in Kenya. From July the migration starts to enter the Maasai Mara and Sala's Camp is one of the first to welcome them! Warm, dry days and cooler evenings.

OCTOBER & DECEMBER: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Another secret season and the perfect time for travellers who are not bound by school holidays. October can be a wonderful month; getting hot and dry before the November short rains.
Sala's Camp is closed for Nov | Sasaab is closed 9 - 30 Nov | Solio Lodge is closed 1 - 15 Nov
