The fantastic vacation paradise in East Africa offers its visitors various possibilities for an unforgettable stay. No other African country can enchant you with such a diversity of breathtaking flora and fauna.
Kenya can be separated in two climate zones which are defined by their heights and the change of rainy and dry seasons: The highland is located higher than 1.820 m and has two rainy seasons: from April to June and from October to November. It mostly rains in the afternoon, in the evening or during the relatively cold night. With an average temperature of about 10 degrees, the coldest time in this region is the dry season from July to August. With 25 to 26 degrees, January and February are the warmest periods. Humidity is at approximately 65%. In Nairobi, temperatures range from 11 to 21 degrees in July and between 13 and 23 degrees in February. The annual precipitation rate is at about 958 mm here.
The coast offers temperatures between 22 and 23 degrees, at night they only rarely fall under 20 degrees and humidity is at approximately 75%. Most rain falls from April to June and from October to November, the driest and also warmest months are January and February. We especially recommend the January and February as time for holidays as there are nearly no rainfalls and a comfortable warm temperature. Also the dry season from June to October offers good travel weather, but temperatures aren't as high as at the beginning of the year.
