Cheapest time to visit Kenya is at the beginning of the rainy season in March, April and May. The number of travellers booking flights to Kenya is relatively low. This is the reason tickets are way cheaper than other months of the year. Hotels and Inn provide better deals, as well as rooms, are empty and only occupied rooms give profit to these businesses. As the rainy season is about to begin, the humidity is low, making the air fresh and dry. The atmosphere is much more pleasant in these months, as compared to August when the humidity is above 70%. Crisp air and open skies are yet another advantage of coming to Kenya in the spring.

The best time to visit Kenya is from August to June. Kenya is among those fortunate countries that have almost constant temperatures throughout the year. The highest temperatures barely move outside the 21°C to 25°C range. The only exception is the month of July which is not only wetter but also drags the average temperatures below 17°C, which is not too bad though. So, you can more or less plan a trip to Kenya any time of the year, and it would be great weather wise. A clear sky means loyalty towards schedule and those local festivals you are so much looking forward to are not going to be interrupted by an unexpected downpour.
Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) serves the city of Nairobi and is the seventh busiest international airport on the African continent. The airport is only 15 kilometres from the city centre of Nairobi and last year was host to 7 million passengers.
Eldoret International Airport (EDL) is how Kenyans living in the midwest of the country reach their international destinations. Eldoret airport as the name suggests lies in the city of Eldoret. The airport is only 17 kilometres from the city centre and quite near to the Ugandan border.
Moi International Airport (MBA) is located in Mombasa, and it is the second busiest airport in Kenya. The airport is only 15 kilometres from Mombasa city centre, which is a mere 20-minute ride by car.
A British passport holder requires a visa to enter Kenya. There are two ways of getting your visa: from the airport upon arrival and by applying for it at the Kenyan High Commission. It is better to get the visa before you travel because often the lines of foreigners are endless at the airport. Please make sure that your passport is valid up to six months on the entry in Kenya.
What’s the most remarkable thing you see when sightseeing in Kenya? This phrase ‘most remarkable’ occurs time and time again during the entire transit across this jumble of lakes, mountains and safari scapes. The landmarks in Kenya are not made of concrete; instead, they are full of life, warm and awe-inspiring.
The year starts with the Safari Rally held in March. The Lake Turkana festival is held in May and is a festival that brings all the diverse tribes of Kenya to promote peaceful co-existence. The festival features traditional dances and the opportunity to taste the different foods from the tribes living around the Lake Turkana region. November brings two amazing festivals: the Lamu Cultural festival and the Mombasa Carnival.
Kenya’s main urban cities are connected by highways, which sometimes can become very potholed and dusty, never the less the buses do manage to take you from destination to destination. Travelling within the city is usually done by the matatu – extremely colourful zigzagging vans. The matatu can be a bit overcrowded and in rush hours can be stuffed with two dozen people, but they are now never overbooked, thanks to the government’s recent actions. Alternatively, there are car rental services all over Kenya that offer a fully functional vehicle for a price. Hired cars can be a bit more expensive but provide a more comfortable travelling experience.
Leading names among Kenya’s hospitality industry are:
