This country is perfect for a romantic, honeymoon, or celebration getaway. If you are not on a safari you can enjoy exploring mount Kenya, Africa's second-tallest mountain, or explore the beautiful city of Nairobi.
With popular destinations like the Maasai Mara, a visit to Kenya will leave you fulfilled. Maasai Mara is one of Africa's best National Parks. It shares a border with the popular Serengeti, and every year over 1,5 million wildebeest migrate from Maasai Mara to the Serengeti and back, on what is known as the Great Migration.
Besides Maasai Mara, there is also the Amboseli National Reserve. This amazing national park hosts a vast array of wildlife stretching across vast grasslands with a backdrop of the famed Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's tallest mountain. The name Amboseli means "salty dust" in Maasai, which accurately describes the park's conditions. The reserve is known for housing one of the largest populations of elephants in Africa, so watch out for these gentle giants on your many safari adventures.

Kenya is an all-year-round destination as the geography is quite diverse with something to do in every season. However, most of the best game viewing occurs between January and March with the climate being mild and dry. This is a great time for a safari because most animals gather at waterholes creating a fantastic game-viewing experience. Although, a visit between the rainy seasons between April and June and between November and December is worth a visit, as you'd avoid large crowds and enjoy low prices at lodges.
