Hi, sorry don't know any travel agents, but the best time in Kenya is january/february and june-september. From march to may is big rainy season and october-december is small rainy season, which isn't that bad.
I was there late June this year and the weather was clear and comfortably warm, around 25 degrees inland, the coastal areas are slightly warmer and more humid. But maybe just as important, the crowds are missing in june!
The upper north (have'nt been there) is hotter and drier year round.

Hi Aileen,
When I was in Kenya, I went with Star Travels and Tours. They basically gave our group of 4 people a van, and a driver. The driver drove us from one place to another within the country as well as through the Savanna.

Here are the places you absolutely have to visit in Kenya:

a. Masai Mara - this is Kenya at its very best. It captures the best wildlife in the country.
b. Samburu Park
c. The Ark (this is a hotel right in the middle of the forest. Instead of you going out to see the animals, the animals come to you. People typically stay here overnight. No one is allowed to leave the hotel during that period since as soon as you step out, you are in the natural environment of wild animals).
d. Baringo - Great place to view Hippos and Flamingos
e. Mombasa
f. From Nairobi, take a drive to Limuru (about an hour away) for a spectacular view of the Great Rift Valley.

Hope this information helps.

Pranav

Hi,

Try Masai Travel (www.masaitravel.com) they offer safaris to Kenya. We had an amazing time in Kenya. Their local staff was really friendly and very nice.

The best time to visit Kenya is from June to August. I hope this helps you.

Cheers,
