You need a visa to enter Kenya. You can either get a visa on arrival at the airport, or before you travel. To minimise time spent queuing at the airport, get a visa before you travel. You can apply for single entry and transit visas on the evisas website. For more information on different types of visas see the website of the Kenya High Commission.
Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the date of entry into Kenya. Make sure you have two blank pages in your passport on arrival.
The Kenyan authorities have confirmed they will accept British passports extended by 12 months by British Embassies and Consulates under additional measures put in place in mid-2014.

HIGH SEASON : June- October
Wildlife is easier to spot because the bush 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 less mosquitoes.
July to October are the best months to see the wildebeest migration.
Migration occurs between Tanzania Serengueti’s Plain in the south and Kenya Masai mara in the north. Its one of the most fascinating spectacles and a must see in a life time.
MID & LOW SEASON : November- May
Newborn animals can be seen and in general, you will still see plenty of wildlife even though it is easier to spot during the dry season.
Migratory birds are present from October to April.
Except for March, April and May, rains are short showers in the afternoon or evening and will rarely compromise your safari.
