‘Karibu’ means ‘welcome’ in Swahili and it was the first thing I heard as I got off the plane. On landing at Nairobi airport, we headed straight to the Sarova Stanley hotel, where we were booked to stay. Located in the very heart of Nairobi, near its vibrant city centre and other shopping markets, this heritage hotel has been voted the best in Kenya at the World Travel awards, described by the Wall Street Journal as the ‘Oscars’ of the global travel and tourism industry. It was grand indeed. After checking in, we headed for lunch to its famous outdoor Thorn Tree Café which had functioned as the oldest post office in Kenya many, many years ago.
After lunch, we headed out to Nakuru. Nakuru is a little town in Kenya, far from the madness of the main city, making it more peaceful and friendly compared to Nairobi.How to reach: Nakuru is about 160 kilometres from Nairobi. Driving down takes about an hour and a half to reach.

Best Time to Visit Kenya

Peak season: The ideal time to visit Kenya is from June through October and then in the months of January and February. This period is most suitable for animal safaris in Maasai Mara as the climate is dry, making it favourable for spotting the animals.

Shoulder season: November to December is the time when there's sporadic rainfall throughout Kenya, and prices tend to fall compared to the peak season. There are less number of tourists during this period compared to the peak season.

Off-season: March to May are the months when there is heavy rainfall and hotel tariffs are at their lowest. It is advisable to not embark on an animal safari during these months as the chances of spotting animals are very low.
