Your Arrival in Kenya

Finding your way around in a strange African country can be somewhat daunting, which is why we make sure that an Africa Point representative is on hand to give you a warm Kenyan welcome when you arrive at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Just collect your bags, clear customs and make your way to the Arrivals area where we will be waiting to welcome you to Kenya. We always carry a prominent name board for easy identification - you can't miss us!

Your Expert Safari Guides

Africa Point is dedicated to ensuring you get the best possible safari experience with us in Kenya. As from 2016, we will only be using Silver (or Gold) accredited professional Safari Guides on all our Kenya safaris. This means that your safari experience is in the best possible hands, led by a guide who has many years of extensive field experience combined with a wealth of wildlife knowledge, accredited by the KPSGA (Kenya Professional Safari Guide Association).

Your Safety First

The Kenyan landscape is magnificent and the wildlife is amazing, but Kenya is a far cry from London or New York. Distances are vast, roads are often in poor condition and wild animals have the right of way!

Here at Africa Point our number-one priority is the safety of our customers, and we do everything within our power to ensure that each and every visitor has a wonderful and completely hassle-free experience. Some of the measures that have been put in place to assure your safety are the following:


All our game-viewing vehicles have been fitted with speed governors to make sure they stick to the 80kph speed restriction which is required by law for all vehicles that carry passengers.

All our vehicles are equipped with real-time GPS trackers, so that we always know exactly where they are. This could be really important in the event of a flat tyre or other unforeseen hitch while you are out on a game drive.

Every person who books an Africa Point safari in East Africa is covered by AMREF Flying Doctors insurance (paid for by Africa Point) so that you are covered for emergency medical evacuation, should the need arise.

Kenya Safari Calendar

Kenya has two dry seasons, the main one from June to October and another shorter spell of dry weather between January and February. From November to around the end of February the rains are generally in the form of light evening showers which do not have a great impact on your game viewing. The highest rainfall occurs between February and April and this is when some camps and lodges close due to impassable roads.


Year-round Higlights

The Big Five

Game viewing in Kenya is generally very good all year round, particularly in the Maasai Mara where the excellent density of wildlife ensure great viewing at just about any time of year. The shoulder seasons (October and May) are when you will often pick up great bargains and avoid the seasonal crowds in the more popular Parks such as Maasai Mara, Nakuru, Samburu and Amboseli.


Birding

Kenya hosts several IBA’s (Important Birding Areas) where you can enjoy ticking off hundreds of resident species at any time of year. The Rift Valley Lakes, Naivasha, Nakuru, Borogia and Baringo, have large resident populations of water birds and nesting colonies of raptors, such as the African Fish Eagle, which you can enjoy all year around.


The Dry Months – January/February and June to October

General Game Viewing

June to October is without doubt the best time of the year for game viewing in Kenya (and most of East and Southern Africa). The days are sunny and clear, there is very little chance of rain and the grass is shorter making game-viewing easier. In addition, many seasonal water sources dry up and the wildlife is forced to congregate around permanent water holes making them much easier to locate.


The down-side is that this is the busiest time in all the popular reserves, and also the most expensive!


The Wildebeest Migration

The huge herds reach the Maasai Mara Reserve around July and seeing them on the plains of the ‘Mara, or witnessing a perilous river crossing is a wildlife spectacle second to none. The best time to see the action is between July and September. However, since the timing of the migration is dictated by the rains, it is never possible to perfectly predict the best time.


Hiking and Trekking

Hiking in the wonderful Aberdare National Park is definitely at its best during the dry months and if you plan to trek beautiful Mount Kenya you should definitely consider late August to September when the temperatures at the higher altitudes are a little kinder. (Mid January to February, the other dry period, is also great for trekking.).


The Wet Months – November to May

Birding

Spring and summer (from October to March) are by far the best times for bird watching in Kenya. After the start of the spring rains, the resident bird population is dramatically swollen by thousands of migrating northern bird species, making the early summer months the best time to visit for a birding safari to the Rift Valley Lakes, Nakuru, Bogoria, Naivasha and Baringo as well as the coastal breeding hotspots, such as the Sokoke Forest, Mida-Creek and Sabaki estuary, near the Watamu Marine National Park.


Calving

October to December is when most of the animals calve and visiting at this time provides the perfect opportunity to see many baby animals, as well as the many predators who eagerly anticipate easy pickings! In addition, the arid areas miraculously turn green and the landscape is sensational.

Safari Impressions from our Safari Guides

Kenya Safari Parks

The legendary Maasai Mara National Reserve is the jewel in the wildlife crown and hosts the annual Wildebeest Migration. In addition, Kenya is blessed with a stunningly beautiful landscape; in the Rift Valley, bold escarpments drop down to scenic bird-fringed lakes and volcanic thermal springs, forming a perfect natural tapestry. Towering Mount Kenya, Africa’s second tallest mountain, stands guard over all this bounty, while in the north wild and largely untouched reserves like Samburu, Meru and Shaba beckon the adventurous. To top it all, Kenya has a long and lovely coastline featuring excellent beach resorts and Marine National Parks.
