Seasons
Seasonal rains govern Kenya's weather:
-          Long rains (April to May)
-          Dry season (December to March & June to November)
-          Short rain (November)

However, we can expect the occasional rain showers throughout the year. Our rides are set at approximately 4,500ft- 7,500ft above sea level, which makes for idyllic riding weather. Temperatures usually range from 10 C- 30 C. It is often sunny during the mornings with cloud building-up in the afternoons – during the rains this develops into thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. Temperatures usually range from 10 C- 30 C.

Peak season is between July and October, during the migration. Early November and February can also offer excellent game viewing.


Special note – Wildlife
The Mara is known as one of the finest wildlife destinations in the World. There is an excellent chance of seeing the Big 5, cheetah, serval, hyena, bat-eared foxes, black-backed and side-striped jackals, hippo, crocodile, baboons, warthog, topi, eland, Thompson’s gazelle, Grant’s gazelle, impala, waterbuck, oribi, reed-buck, zebra.

The Mara Naboisho Conservancy has a higher density of wildlife than the adjacent Masai Mara National park.
The conservancy has the big cats in big numbers. In fact, with roughly 100 lions living in the vicinity, it has one of the highest lion densities in the world.
The conservancy boasts impressive herds of elephant, giraffe, wildebeest, and zebra. It is also home to Kenya’s rare wild dog. In addition to the abundance of resident game, the Mara Naboisho Conservancy also serves as a migration corridor for several hundred thousand animals between the Masai Mara National Reserve and the Loita Plains to the east.
What sets the Mara Naboisho Conservancy apart is not only the quantity of wildlife, but also the quality of game viewing. Because of its size and the limited number of guests, you will never find 20 vehicles huddled around a kill at the conservancy. In fact, it is unlikely that you would even find four. While high game-viewing standards are enforced – not only to improve the viewing experience, but also to protect the wildlife – the conservancy is free of the restrictions that make so many national park safaris pedestrian. Put simply, the experience is exceptional not only because of what you get to see, but also because of how you get to see it.

The best times to see wildlife are usually during the dry seasons, from December to March and from June to November. During the migration (July to November) huge numbers of wildebeest move in.
