When is the best time to travel East Africa?

East Africa is a safari destination and the best time to travel is during the dry months. The rainy season is from April to June – and there are short rains from late November through December. It is often less expensive to travel during the long rainy season.
Dry season offers excellent game viewing and more reliable road conditions. Wildlife gathers around the limited water sources, making it easier to spot animals.
July and August are generally extremely busy months in East Africa, offering comfortable temperatures in addition to being a popular travel time worldwide. It is important to book in advance.
