August weather and where to go
After a wild crossing in July, August is when the great migration is usually starting to settle and graze on Kenya’s healthy green plains, but if the season is a little late, you can still see river crossings at this time. Please note: the above chart shows averages based on the Masai Mara, apart from water temperature which is given for the Kenyan Coast.
With the bush becoming even less dense throughout the dry season, wildlife is easier still to view and photograph. Yet, parks teeming with game vehicles can be a photographer’s nightmare. This is worth keeping in mind when planning your trip.
Although our guides will make every effort to avoid crowds and get you in the right place at the right time, if you want a quieter atmosphere, you may want to consider travelling to Kenya at a different time of year.
