What is the climate like in Kenya?
The highland areas have a temperate climate (22°- 25°C) due to the high altitude, however  it is hotter in low-lying areas like the Rift Valley (30°- 35°C). The coast is hot and humid most of the year. Kenya has two rainy seasons, the ‘short rains’ that take place over 5-6 weeks in November and December and the ‘long rains’ that occur during March to May.

Kenya’s major capital Nairobi is the main entry point into the country. Major airlines that fly into Nairobi include British Airways, Etihad Airways, Emirates, Lufthansa and Air France. From Nairobi, Kenya Airways offers flights to other popular African destinations including South Africa, Uganda, Rwanda and Zimbabwe.

Kenya is often combined with neighbouring Tanzania, and with Uganda or Rwanda for a trek to see the gorillas. A few days on the beautiful beaches of the Tanzanian island of Zanzibar is a very popular way to end a Kenyan safari.
