Meals Aloft

Kenya is located on the Equator. The temperature, therefore, does not vary too much. During our summer months – their winter (June through August) it is about 10 degrees cooler, but days will be warm and can reach 80’s and evenings can be cool and can drop to the 40’s in the higher elevations. The rainy season is in April/May (long rains) and November (short rains). However, it does not rain every day, or all day, and rainstorms are quickly followed by brilliant sunshine which makes for incredible photographic opportunities. Wildlife viewing is good year-round; however, the migration of zebra and wildebeest follow this cycle:

  • January-March – southern sector of the Serengeti in Tanzania
  • April-June – central Serengeti in Tanzania
  • July – western corridor of the Serengeti in Tanzania
  • August-October – northern Serengeti and mostly into Maasai Mara in Kenya
  • November-December – returning back to Serengeti in Tanzania and making their way to the southern sector
