Choosing a Safari Destination 

Both Kenya and Tanzania are primarily safari destinations. And so the simple answer to the best time for a safari in East Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and Uganda) is in the dry seasons. East Africa broadly shares the same climate with two wet periods. The “long rains” of mid-March to mid-May (broadly) and the “short” rains of November. In between are two dry periods which are considered the best time for game-viewing.
