Best time to visit the Masai Mara

© Mara Saruni

The best time to visit the Masai Mara for the migration is between July and October, but that's not to say you shouldn't consider another time of year, which may be just as rewarding.  Read more about the outstanding game viewing in the Masai Mara.

The Mara is best known for the great wildebeest migration, which moves up from the Serengeti from around July until sometime in October, when it starts to head back south again.  The phenomenal spectacle of river crossings and plains dotted with game as far as the horizon is certainly a major highlight.

However, not all game migrates and so it is certainly worth considering the Mara outside of the peak seasons (when the human population also takes a dive).  Late March to early June can be pretty wet and boggy, and with black-cotton soil, that’s not much fun.  December – February are good times to visit, but remember to adjust your expectations accordingly; this is not migration time.
