Kenya and particularly Samburu has so much to offer throughout the year, especially for photographers. During the rainy seasons (April – May and Oct – Nov) expect stormy dramatic skies, vibrant green grass across the rangelands and this is also a great time to capture the variety of migratory birds as well as mammal offspring. Each month has its own fortune unique to that time of the year waiting to be caught on camera.
