BEST TIME TO VISIT BUFFALO SPRINGS FOR A NORTHERN KENYA SAFARI
The long dry season is followed by a short rainy season in late October, November and most parts of December. While the weather may reduce visitor levels somewhat, spending Christmas and New Year’s in the wilderness is a popular African holiday dream of many guests. Accommodation rates are slightly reduced during November and the first three weeks of December due to the short rains. While you may pay less for your room during the shower season, other costs remain constant throughout the year, including logistical travel including vehicle rates, park entrance fees, AfricanMecca guided services, meals and others. Accommodation prices are increased to normal levels from late December through the short dry season of January and February. Late March begins the long rainy season that lasts until late May through parts of June. The transformation of the reserve makes this the perfect time for an intimate trip to Buffalo Springs Reserve.
Vegetation erupts from parched earth that is awakened with the rains, and the heart-touching events such as the birth of a herbivore will give you a lifetime of memories. Watch quietly as newborns stand and take their first steps under the gentle encouragement of their mothers who masterfully keep watch for stealthy predators hiding in the tall grasses. Navigating the terrain can be challenging, as roads and trails may be muddy and slippery. Your guide’s intimate knowledge of the area ensures that you can reach the best possible locations. As with the short rainy seasons, room costs are reduced during this time of year while other mentioned prices remain the same year-round. Daytime high range from 84 F (29 C) to 90 F (32 C) degrees depending on the month of travel while nighttime temperature drops to a degrees range of 61 F (16 C) to 66 F (19 C). The cool seasons are June to August with January and February being the hottest.
