WHEN TO GO

Africa has been blessed with an abundance of wildlife and the best time for animal spotting is from late June to October which is the dry season. The Wildebeest migrates to Maasai Mara in July and remains here till October where it migrates back to the Serengeti in Tanzania which is a spectacle. One can also visit from the month of January to the end of March, as the climate is mild and game spotting is also possible.
