Best Safaris

An authentic safari experience in a vastly diverse landscape offering abundant and exhilarating wildlife experiences.

Kenya Africa offers great diversity in the safari experience, from unimaginable luxury to walking safaris operating fly-camps in wilderness zones for small groups and families. Like the Serengeti in Tanzania, Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Reserve becomes part of the ‘great migration’ on an annual basis. The Mara River crossings with huge scavenging crocodiles are the most prominent happenings associated with this mind-blowing event.

Of course Kenya is also famous for its big cats and elephants, including majestic 'Tusker' elephants, which can be seen throughout the year together with a huge variety of other species in the parks, reserves and conservancies for which the country is so well known. The Maasai Mara is generally the building block for any Kenyan safari experience, and from there you could build into the itinerary a visit to the northern reaches of the country, the coast for some beach time, Amboseli with the magnificent Mt Kilimanjaro backdrop or alternatively hop over to Rwanda or Uganda for their ultimate primate experiences.

Kenya’s on the equator and it’s considered a year-round destination so you can travel at any time and still have a great safari experience. The climate varies across the different parts of the country, from the tropical humidity of the coast, the dry heat of the savannah and semi-arid areas, or the cool air of the highlands above 6,000 feet; and Mount Kenya, the second-highest mountain in Africa, after Kilimanjaro. It tends to be hotter from December to March, coolest in June to October, with rainy periods mainly in April, May and November. The rains tend to fall mostly at night and usually it’s a short and heavy tropical downpour. Our favourite time is February - March, when it’s blue skies, sunshine and quieter parks!

The great wildebeest migration, with millions of grazing animals moving from the Serengeti National Park to the Mara, usually starts to arrive in the Mara towards the end of June and leaves by early October. Another smaller migration of wildebeest takes place from the Loita plains through the Mara Conservancies starting in Ol Kinyei in February and March (when calving takes place) and then moving during the following weeks through Naboisho and Olare Motorogi Conservancies towards the Mara Reserve.

Kenya offers daily connections into other East African countries and destinations; such as Tanzania, Rwanda and Zanzibar for visitors wishing to combine their safari with similar experiences in varying biomes offered by some other well-known and top national parks of Africa, or primate experiences and beach holidays. Safari Guru understands the best connections and safari offerings to combine Bisate Lodge with well-suited luxury camp creating a well-rounded and rewarding safari experience.

To experience a Safari in Kenya was in our bucket list since 1999, this was one of our biggest dreams… the experience was unbelievable, luxury accommodation, first-class treatment, exquisite local cuisine, great wine, spectacular romantic rooms and we were educated about nature, conservation, environment and animals like never before. This was a “one in a lifetime experience”, and we will recommend Safari Guru services to all our friends, colleagues and family.
