The price is correct to the best of our knowledge, but is intended to be a guide price and is subject to change at the time of confirmation.
Kenya in East Africa is an ideal all year round safari destination. During November, April and May the Mara receive a lot of rainfall. From January to March and late June through to October, when it is dry, wildlife tends to congregate around permanent water sources. During the wet season, animals disperse across the regions and are harder to find in the bushveld.
