When to travel to
Even being in Ecuador, Kenya has many variations of climate, depending on where we are.
The rainy seasons are well differentiated:
November and December are the short rains and from March to May are the long rains. This does not mean that you cannot travel, we highly recommend it, because the prices will be lower, less tourism, less dust on the road and a very special light for photography.
The great migration is in Kenya from the beginning of July to the end of September, although this will vary depending on the rains each year.
Whale migration normally runs from mid-June to mid-September off the coast of Kenya.
