Vegan Kenya Safaris
Below are some sample vegan Kenya safaris.
These can be modified ie they can be extended, we can use different lodging, and or add in other activities as you want it.
KENYA Weather & Climate
Kenya lies on the equator and has a pleasant, tropical climate, but there are large regional variations influenced by several factors, including altitude. Temperatures drop by about 6°C for every 1,000 m of elevation (or 3.5°F per 1,000 ft). Kenya’s daytime temperatures average between 20°C/68°F and 28°C/82°F, but it is warmer on the coast. The coast is hot and humid all year round, but the heat is tempered by the monsoon winds. Kenya is too close to the equator to experience a real winter and summer. There is, however, both a dry and wet season.
Dry season –June to October
June, July, August, September & October – These are the coolest but comfortable months. Daytime temperatures are usually around 23°C/73°F at higher altitudes, such as the Masai Mara, and 28°C/82°F at lower altitudes, such as the coastal areas. During the dry season, the sky is clear and days are sunny. Early morning temperatures at higher altitude are typically 10°C/50°F. It is advisable to pack warm clothing, as morning game drives will be cold. There is very little rain in most of the country, so these are the least humid months, making it the best time to stay at one of Kenya’s beautiful beaches and national parks for wildlife viewing.
Merits of visiting during this season
• Wildlife is easier to spot as the bush flora is less dense and animals gather around waterholes and rivers.
• It’s unlikely to rain, the days are sunny with clear skies, and there are fewer mosquitoes.
• July to October are the best months to see the wildebeest migration.
Wet season –November to May
During the wet season, daytime temperatures are between 24°C/75°F and 27°C/81°F at higher altitudes. At lower altitudes daytime temperatures are more consistent and hover around 30°C/86°F. Mornings stay cool at higher altitudes, and it is advisable to pack warm clothes for early morning game drives. From December to April, the humidity is intense in Tsavo and the coastal areas.
November & December – ‘Short rains’:
A period of unpredictable, short rains between November and December that lasts about a month. The rain is sometimes heavy, but mostly falls in the late afternoon or evening, and will seldom have a negative impact on your safari.
January & February
During these months, a dry spell in the rainy season occurs with less rainfall. How long the spell lasts and when it takes place exactly is unpredictable.
March, April & May – ‘Long rains’.
These months get the most rain, and there can be a downpour on a daily basis, although it seldom lasts the whole day. It’s very cloudy, especially in the highlands, including Aberdares National Park and Laikipia Plateau. Humidity is higher and will be particularly noticeable in the coastal regions.
Merits of wet season
• The scenery is beautiful and green.
• Rates drop during the low season.
• Newborn animals can be seen, and in general, you will still see plenty of wildlife.
• Migratory birds are present from September to April.
• Except for March, April and May, rains are short showers in the afternoon or evening and will rarely compromise your safari.

Q: What is a Vegan Africa safari ?
A: Vegan travelers on a Africa safari want to experience the magnificence of the Africa wildlife and have their eating preferences catered for.
The word safari means journey in Swahili, it implies a range of activities.
Whether it be the early wake call sometimes to the sound of the African drum, snacks while on Safari game drives, lunch, the evening meal possibly with vegan wine, its all available on a custom designed Vegan Africa Safari.
In many cases most hotels/safari lodges or camps simply cater for the vegan traveler. Catering is a very impersonal service..one does the least to make it look like the most.
Accommodating the vegan traveler is a different thing…here the vegan traveler wishes or needs are treated just like any other traveler.
This is what we shrive to achieve with our custom design vegan safari and tour services…that the vegan traveler is given the attention they deserve.
