East African safari timing - June or September?

Jump to last reply

I am planning my first safari in East Africa (Kenya and Tanzania) and am seeking advice on timing.

We'll be visiting many of the popular parks: Tarangire, Manyara, Ngorongoro, Amboseli, Masai Mara, and Lewa. I will also be summiting Kilimanjaro the week before the safari, so weather there will play into the timing as well.

Photography is a main priority of mine while on safari, and I'm most interested in the big cats (lions, cheetahs, and jaguars), rhinos, and elephants. The migration would be fun to see (especially from hot air balloon, i think), but it's not a huge priority of mine. It'd be great to dodge the crowds but still have an ideal game viewing experience (ie: sunny, not a dust storm, not a lot of tall grass inhibiting views).

We are looking at time blocks from mid June - early July and late August - mid September.

What input do you have on the timing of our trip?
