Kenya in October
October is a good time to visit the Masai Mara after the crowds have dispersed
Nairobi and the central highlands are hot by day, cool by night and might receive occasional rain.
Mombasa and the coast is very hot by day, rather hot at night, and receives a moderate to high rainfall.
The Rift Valley and western interior are hot by day, cool at night and receive a moderate rainfall.
- October is a fair time for beach holidays on the Kenyan coast, being relatively cool and not too wet.
- Game viewing in most safari destinations is good in October. The wildebeest migration is usually still to be found in the Masai Mara, making it a great time to be on safari there. The post-migration calm and pleasant climate make October a good time to visit Kenya. Wildebeest and zebra can still be seen in their numbers throughout the Mara, offering great photographic opportunities.
