When to Travel to Naboisho

Travellers can visit the Mara year round, with plenty to see at any given time. We recommend visiting between January and April as it is a wonderful time to travel with fewer people in the Mara and plenty of wildlife, especially the big cats for which the area is known.

Why travel at this time

The Mara is fairly quiet during these months. There’s plenty of wildlife to spot, including prolific big cats, giraffes, elephants, the occasional black rhino and migratory birds. It’s also when a lot of animals give birth. There are perfect photographic conditions through the first part of the year, with clear skies and flowers that bloom after the short rains of November and December.


January and February are mostly dry, aside from the odd shower. The long rains don’t start until March. Though it’s the hottest time of year, the Mara is rarely sweltering with average highs of 28°C/82°F in February. The average low is 13°C/55°F from January to March.
