Weather in Masai Mara Month By Month

January and February: These months fall within the rainy season in the Maasai Mara, which typically runs from November to June. The weather is typically hot and humid, with temperatures reaching as high as 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit). Rainfall is also heavy during this time, with an average of 150 mm (6 inches) of rain per month. The heavy rainfall causes the grass to grow tall, making it harder to spot wildlife, but it attracts a lot of birds and aquatic animals like hippos and crocodiles.

Masai Mara Balloon Safari is it Worth it?

A hot air balloon safari in the Masai Mara is an experience like no other. Imagine floating above the vast savannah landscape, surrounded by nothing but the sound of the burners and the occasional call of a bird or animal. The early morning light is just beginning to peek over the horizon, casting a soft orange glow over the grasslands below. As you rise higher and higher into the sky, the view becomes more and more breathtaking.
