The best time to visit both Kenya and Tanzania is during the dry seasons from mid June through October, this is also the peak season and the parks are frequented with many travelers. Therefore it's a wise idea to reserve your spot early in advance. April and May happens to be a rainy season and are definitely not the best to experience the wildlife safaris.
It’s advisable to consider taking antimalarial pills before hand, there is a risk of catching malaria in Africa. It is highly recommended to ask your doctor’s advice about antimalarial drugs before leaving your country. Malaria is transmitted by mosquitoes and, as the insects are most active at night, it is recommended that travelers wear long-sleeved trousers and shirts at night and sleep under mosquito net. Remember to bring along your mosquito repellent.
Wild animal attacks are extremely rare and we have never had such an incident. But it is always important to remember that you will be travelling through the wilderness hence it is of utmost importance to abide by the rules and regulations of the parks and accommodation facilities you will be staying so as to ensure your safety. Always listen to your driver-guides advice and instructions as far as wild animals are concerned. While travelling with small children please make sure you do not let them out of your site or wander alone. In some private tented camps it is important to have an escort with you when moving in and out of your tent at night.
There is good cell reception at most points while you are on safari. Also all our vehicles are equipped with radio calls which makes communication easy where phone reception is not available.
