Visiting Kenya in green season

Kenya’s green seasons take place during the ‘short rains’ in November, and either side of the ‘long rains’ that fall in April and May. In these months, you’ll see the bush at its most verdant and have the wildlife largely to yourself during a more cost-effective time to visit the country.
