August is a great time to visit certain parts of Kenya as, not only is it in the dry season but, its a little cooler and, a good time to see the wildebeest migration. The Masai Mara National Reserve is ideal for this and, the migration of over a million wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of thomson's gazelle and zebra is one of the factors that makes it such a popular safari destination. The reserve is home to nearly 100 species of mammal and ideal for a daytime game drive or; for a mesmerising view over the plains, a hot air balloon trip is a must.
