Kenya is renowned as one of the top wildlife destinations in the world and rightly so! July in Kenya forms the background for the Great Migration where one can see thousands of wildebeest, antelopes, zebras and many other animals migrate together in search for water and food. Obviously the predators follow making this a ‘bucket list’ experience.
Masai Mara in Kenya is where the Great Migration happens in July, making it the most popular destination in Kenya. But Kenya is not a one trick horse! There is more to it than wildlife. The coast offers beautiful beaches and fantastic scuba diving and snorkeling. There are islands to be explored and sailing on a traditional dhow is an experience not to be missed. Then there are the mountains. Once can opt to climb Mount Kenya, a snow cloaked equatorial peak on a 4 to 7 day hike depending on the route you pick.
The capital city of Nairobi offers a vibrant culture and fantastic nightlife. It offers visitors national parks, gardens, churches, museums and fantastic souvenirs. Besides the Masai Mara there are other national parks to explore as well and many other wildlife related experiences.
July in Kenya falls in the dry season. This means minimal rain and temperatures around 23°C in places with higher altitude like Masai Mara and around 28°C around the coast.
