Kenya is a safari, beach and cultural destination all packed into one. The Great Migration, which unfolds every year in August, is perhaps the biggest tourist draw and makes Masai Mara National Reserve the top attraction. The reserve is home to some of the densest concentrations of wildlife on earth. Having only spent time in Nairobi and not finding a reason to stay, it’s safe to say we only care to go back for the Great Migration.
When to Go: The migration takes place June-October (primetime is late July-August). January and February can also be good for wildlife watching.
