Kenya Safari Seasons

KENYA SAFARI SEASONS

The weather in Kenya is good for safaris at all times of year, though there is a greater chance of encountering rain from mid-April to the end of May and in November. Some people like to travel in these "rainy" months when dramatic cloud formations gather over the Mara plains, there is a sense of refreshment and grasslands are carpeted in new flowers.
Daily temperatures are influenced by altitude, so in the higher areas like Samburu you need a fleece for the cool early morning drives, but by 9am this is discarded as temperatures rise to the high 20s.
After a delicious lunch you take a siesta during the warm early afternoon with temperatures in the low 30s. Head out on safari around 4pm as it gets cooler and the animals start moving, remembering to take the fleece for when the sun has dipped below the horizon.
Weather is more a consideration at the coast, so don’t visit the Kenya coast from the first week of April to the first few days of June as the rains are heavier in coastal areas. At all other times of year the Kenya coast weather is warm, gently humid and breezy, at its very best from late November through to March.

Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge

Set against the magnificent backdrop of Africa's highest mountain, the glittering Mount Kilimanjaro, Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge enjoys a uniquely privileged position at the heart of this world-famous national park.
Secluded within a grove of acacia trees, the lodge looks out over the golden savannah plains, with uninterrupted views of the mountain itself. Close by are a series of emerald green swamps, which are fed by the melting snows of Kilimanjaro. These, the only sources of water in this otherwise starkly beautiful but arid park, attract huge numbers of wallowing elephants, hippos, buffalos and plains game. Meanwhile, from the prehistoric site of Observation Hill, the sunset over Kilimanjaro is magnificent.
At the centre of ‘Maasailand', the lodge's décor reflects the brilliant primary colours and iconic shapes representative of these legendary warriors. At the heart of the lodge, shaded by palm trees, is a free-form swimming pool; to either side of which stretch the rooms. Each room is housed in a single storey building opening directly on to the grounds, each reflecting a Maasai manyatta theme: each with its own hand-painted wall frescos.
The central dining area is reached by a timbered bridge over a melt-water stream, while the lounge and bar feature a broad terrace and a blazing fire-pit where evening cocktails can be enjoyed. Activities include daily game drives in custom-built traditional safari vehicles, ‘sundowners' on Observation Hill, bush breakfasts, bush dinners, Maasai dance performances, visits to Maasai villages and tree-planting programmes.






 

Severin Safari Camp

The Severin Safari Camp is located in Tsavo West National Park, the biggest game reserve in East Africa, about 250 km from Mombasa and Nairobi. With view to Mt. Kilimanjaro, it offers a unique landscape with vast savannahs, wooded flood plains and the famous "red" elephants. The camp is not fenced and therefore perfectly integrated into nature. From your tent you enjoy a wonderful view to the landscape and the wild animals wandering around the waterhole. Massai warriors assure your safety round the clock and also stand representatively for the balance of man and nature at Severin Safari Camp.
Besides lions, buffalos, leopards and countless bird species, the biggest elephant population of Kenya lives in Tsavo. It only takes 10 km to visit Mzima Springs, a lake with crocodiles and hippos. From the Poacher's Lookout nearby, our guests enjoy an awesome view to the endless vastness of the national park.

Superbly situated in the lee of Mount Kilimanjaro and sheltered by the volcanic splendour of the Chyulu Hills, this classic stone-built lodge overlooks its own water hole, which is visited daily by elephants, buffalos and a wide variety of plains game. One of the first lodges ever to be built in a national park, the lodge is cool, tranquil and hushed for optimum game-viewing. It is also ideally placed for visits to all the park's prime attractions.
Faced in volcanic stone and utilising the natural rocky outcrops of a valley known as ‘the place of the young rhino', from which it takes its name, the lodge features a thatched central dining area and a rock-built bar, with a viewing terrace looking directly down on to the waterhole.
All the spacious ensuite rooms have their own verandas, some overlooking the waterhole, some the Chyulu Hills, which are one of the world's youngest volcanic ranges. As for activities, the lodge offers numerous game drives, guided walks, bush breakfasts, volcano climbs and trips to Mzima Springs, a set of crystal-clear ponds, fed by the melt waters of Mount Kilimanjaro, in which the many hippos can be viewed from a submerged chamber.

Our location is indisputably unique; nestled beneath the shade of the old Tamarind trees, just in front of a very favoured water-hole, our guests are ensured breathtaking views to the many elephants coming daily for a drink and a refreshing wash.
Lunch is served under a 200 Year old Tamarind tree where you may watch the elephants at the watering hole. Dinner is served in the restaurant lounge area, from 7-9 pm.
After dinner you can relax and enjoy the atmosphere of Tsavo by swapping stories of your days adventures around the camp fire or watch the animals by “night” from the observation tower.
There is only one thing more beautiful than a clear African Night sky – Sunset in the African Bush! The “Sundowner” is a must for all our guests at Satao, if you want to experience this mystical and magical experience please let the camp manager know on arrival. You are taken away from the camp into the bush to “our” special sundowner spot. The fire is lit and delicious biting served and the champagne is poured. Sit back and relax, take in the atmosphere and listen to the animals in the wild.
