Best time to visit Amboseli National park

Amboseli National Park can be visited throughout the year but the best time to embark on your game drives to the park is during the dry seasons usually in the months of June, July, August and September.

During this time, the park does receive less or no rainfall at all that does make the roads within the park dry and easy to navigate through. Its also during this time that various wildlife species gather along river banks, water sources which makes it easier to spot them.

Some of the visitors would much prefer to visit during the wet seasons because of the additional benefits that come with them such as the low car rental costs, low accommodation fees and low traffic in the park.

This takes place during the months of March to May and October to early December.
