Location

Neighbouring the famous Nairobi National Park, Ole-Sereni occupies the park’s northern border.

Accommodation

Rooms here are divided into three different categories. ‘Superior’ rooms, which face the north, all have a walk-in shower, while ‘Deluxe’ rooms face the park and have a shower or bathtub and ‘Club’ rooms are the largest, with a shower and a bathtub.

Activities

Ole-Sereni also boasts both a spa and a gym – a vast contrast from some of the more rural bush lodges! The restaurant has views over the park, and includes an adjoining sports bar. The hotel does cater for special dietary requirements as long as management are notified in advance, and the food is prepared beautifully and quickly.

DRY SEASON

A brief drier interlude before the more intense ‘long rains’ in March, April and May.

Its location so close to the equator means that temperatures throughout the year are very consistent, the variable in play is often altitude, which varies greatly across Kenya, this, therefore, has a corresponding effect on both temperatures as well as rainfall. It is incredible just how climatically varied a country Kenya is for its size.

In general daytime temperatures are warm to hot throughout the year, yet mornings can be surprisingly cool. So, if you intend to visit an inland safari region, we could always recommend bringing a warm fleece.

There are two wet seasons in Kenya, the first known as the long rains take place between March and May, the second wet season is known as the short rains which also tend to be a little less intense, these take place between November and December. There are of course exceptions to this, such as the central highlands which have very high rainfall amounts throughout the year, arid regions such as Meru which have just one distinct wet season and coastal areas which have a more tropical oceanic climate.

The best time for a safari in Kenya is very much defined by the type of experience you are seeking. Many parks are good all year round, although you will find that one’s chances of a good sighting improve during the drier months of the year. If however, you are seeking a more wilderness experience, the best birdlife or simply better prices it the wetter month may, in fact, be a better time to visit.

WET SEASON - 'LONG RAINS'

The exact start and end of the rains are always a little uncertain, but generally, this period is the wettest time of the year, making travel to and from lodges potentially a little tricky at times. This wet season is also often characterised by overcast skies and consecutive days of rain.
