Kenya Weather

The weather in Kenya-Kenya HolidaysKenya Weather

The climate of Kenya can, in the first instance, be defined as equatorial. However its geography turns out to be rather complex and therefore the climatic differences between the various territories are also very evident.

The climate, very hot and humid in the coastal regions, becomes milder and more dry in the heart of the country, in relation to the altitude. The rains are concentrated in two periods of the year: from March to May the great rains, while from October to December the rains are intense but short.
The dominant environment is that of the savannah, protected by numerous natural parks that cover about 10% of the national territory. On the slopes of the mountains and along the rivers there are traces of the original rainforest; while in the north, in the less rainy areas, the savannah fades into the desert. The savannah is the habitat of large herds of herbivores (antelopes, gazelles, giraffes, buffaloes, zebras, elephants) and their predators (lions, leopards and cheetahs). Hippopotamuses and crocodiles live in the waters of the lakes and rivers.

We will divide the territory into 4 distinct bands according to their geography and, consequently, to the climate.

Coastal band
Generally sandy and with few headlands, the coastal strip (which to be intended hosts Mombasa, Malindi, Lamu) has an equatorial climate slightly mitigated by the breezes and the proximity of the Indian Ocean. Nevertheless the maximum temperatures are always quite high as well as the humidity. Rainfall is concentrated in two main rain seasons. One, more abundant, between April and May, and a second between October and November.

Inland plains and northern Kenya
This is the central area of ​​Kenya and the northern one. In these areas, quite far from the sea, the climate is very hot and dry throughout the year. Daytime temperature variations can reach values ​​of up to 30° C. Poor rainfall. The distance from the sea and the full equatorial zone brings a climate practically free of seasonal variations.

Central and western area
It is characterized by the highlands with an average height between 1600 and 2200 meters. The capital Nairobi, for example, is located in this area. The climate would also be particularly hot here if it were not mitigated by the height above sea level. The rains are mostly concentrated in April and May. Even in this case there are practically no seasons except that the months from April to September are a bit ‘fresher.

Mountain areas
Kenya is home to some of the highest peaks in all of Africa. Mount Kenya (5199 meters) and above all the Kilimanjaro in neighboring Tanzania (5358 meters) present, obviously, alpine climes quite different from the rest of the state.

Kenya Sea and Beaches

Kenya SeaKenya Sea and Beaches

Kenya Sea and Beaches means exploring a country with many suggestions, how impressive is its sea. A sea that bathes the coasts of immaculate white, surrounded by nature, protected by coral reefs, where some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
When speaking of Kenya everyone thinks the safari, the animals, the natural beauty, very few think of the sea and the Kenyan beaches.
Kenya is rich in beautiful natural landscapes and white sandy beaches, has well 536 km. of coastline that develop from the southern border with Tanzania to the north with Somalia and overlooking the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.
For nearly 230 kilometers that goes from Vanga to Malindi, the coast is protected by a coral reef, although one of most spectacular coastal stretches of the coast of the African continent is one that runs from Mombasa and leads up to the region Malindi.
Among the most beautiful beaches south of Mombasa, we find: Diani Beach, a long palm-fringed beach fully protected by coral reefs and Tiwi Beach, the “wild side” of Diani Beach, Shelly Beach, with snow-white beaches of coral sands, green palm trees and turquoise sea and an excellent organization of hotels, cottages, villas and resorts.
North of Mombasa instead, we find, Nyali Beach, served by large resorts and crowded by local, Kenyatta and Bamburi Beach, also feeling the pinch of this “problem” but in reality are quite interesting for those who love the direct contact with local people.
Going up along the coast, you come to Watamu, a tiny town, located south of Malindi less than 25 km. Full of interesting naturalistic ideas is ideal point for organized trips in the area, and safaris in large indoor parks, such as the Tsavo East National ParkTsavo West and Amboseli National Park. In addition the area Watamu is also famous for the phenomenon of the tides, which makes this part of the coast, a stunning beauty: small white sand islands emerge a few meters from the beach. The backdrops are immaculate and full of tropical fish, shells and starfish.
The marine parks of Mombasa, Malindi, Watamu are ideal for diving and snorkelling.
