Kenya in July

migration kenya The Great Migration is well underway as the herds make their way to the Masai Mara

Nairobi and the central highlands are warm by day, cool at night and receive practically no rain.

Mombasa and the coast is hot by day, relatively cool at night, and receives a fair amount of rain.

The Rift Valley and western interior are hot by day, cool at night and receive a moderate to high rainfall. Come prepared with lots of layers especially for morning and night drives - this is even more important in higher altitude parks and conservancies such as the Mara and Laikipia.

  • July is an ideal time for beach holidays on the Kenyan coast, being the coolest month, and relatively dry. Game viewing in most safari destinations is good in July. The wildebeest migration sometimes arrives in the Masai Mara towards the end of the month, making it a spectacular opportunity to possibly view river crossings.
