If you think Green Season is the wrong time to go on a safari, you have got to read this!
The green or rainy season in Kenya begins roughly from mid-late March and lasts more or less until the end of June. In Masai Mara, the rains fill the rivers and waterholes, bringing renewed life and transforms the landscape into lush green landscapes. The seasonal rains are often short and sporadic in the morning and evening, with plenty of sunshine between the day. Here are a few reasons why you might want to consider traveling to Masai Mara during the rainy season, particularly if you have been on safari in Africa a time or two and would like to explore a different wildlife experience.
Good Wildlife Viewing Opportunity
Many animals give birth in the wet seasons when food and water are in plenty. This is a good opportunity to watch as baby animals discover their world for the first time. Expect to see lots of baby elephants, lion cubs, young impalas, zebras among other wildlife. It is also a good time to see the dramatic life-and-death scenes of predator and prey interactions as they take full advantage of the plenty inexperienced younger prey.
Enjoy An Exclusive Experience
The green season is one of the quietest time of year, visitor numbers are low. Fewer people means a more exclusive experience meaning that you will often have sightings all to yourselves. This adds to a better wilderness experience at Masai Mara.
its a Great Time for Photography
During green season, the air is clean making for wonderful photography opportunities. The intense cloud formations and sunsets are ideal for photographers. Instead of the lion disappearing completely into the background of dry branches and leaves in the photo, they are now visible and stand out in sharp contrast to the vibrant green background.
