The best time to visit Maasai Mara depends on what you want to see and do. The peak tourist season is from July to October when the wildebeest migration is in full swing, and the grass is shorter, making it easier to spot animals. However, this is also the busiest and most expensive time to visit.
If you want to avoid the crowds and don’t mind the possibility of some rain, the months of April, May, and November can be a good time to visit as there are fewer tourists, and you may get better rates on accommodation and safari packages.
It’s worth noting that the weather can be unpredictable in Maasai Mara, and there may be heavy rain and flooding during the rainy season (April to May), which can make the roads difficult to navigate. Overall, the Maasai Mara reserve is an all-year-round destination and the best time to visit Maasai Mara depends on your priorities and preferences.
