What is the weather like in East Africa?
This is the hot dry season. The sun soars high and there is hardly any clouds. Be sure to pack some sunscreen and a hat. Being the calving season, makes good for safari drives.
March – May
This constitutes the long rains, and road conditions can become difficult. There is a bust of life in the National Parks and makes for beautiful panoramic views. Navigation can be difficult around this time of year.
June – October
These months are cooler than the rest of the year. July constitutes “winter” in East Africa, though the temperature falls within 75-84 degrees Fahrenheit; hardly winter at all for European visitors!
Temperature highs are about 88 degrees Fahrenheit, the dry season is starting to show. At this time “the great wildebeest migration” is in full gear. Ideal for game drives and birding.
Are we going hiking even though it’s raining and windy?
We do hike in the rain, snow, wind and any other weather conditions that nature decides to throw at us. After all, we’re going on adventures! If the weather is unsafe for any reason, the trip will be changed or postponed. You will be notified the week of your trip if there are changes due to weather.
