Best time to go to

Nairobi experiences 2 dry seasons. The first longer one is from about June to October and the second runs from January to February. The long dry season is the best time to spot wildlife in the national park as vegetation is thinner and animals congregate around water sources. The long dry season also offers milder temperatures. However, the rainy seasons, from November to December and March to May, see the landscape transform into a lush oasis. This breathes life into the city and its abundant gardens and grounds.
