& weather

Kenya lies on the equator and has a very pleasant tropical climate; the weather is warm throughout the year with no summers or winters.

There are two rainy seasons, the longer rains in late April, May and early June and the short rains for a few weeks in November and December.

There is a relatively cool season from late June to August whilst January and September are the warmest months. Daytime temperatures average between 20°C/68°F and 28°C/82°F, but it is warmer at the coast. The coast is hot and humid all year round but the heat is pleasant and tempered by the monsoon breezes.



The Big 5, the Great Migration, a beautiful diversity of landscapes, wildlife conservation, fascinating cultures, 45 national parks, white sandy beaches, highlands and mountain ranges, the incredible kindness and hospitality of the Kenyan people. The list of attractions is endless and anyone who has had the pleasure of visiting this remarkable country will attest to the extraordinary experiences to be had in magical Kenya. It really is the holiday of a lifetime.
