How's the weather? Kenya offers temperate to warm temperatures most of the year, with heavy rains localized primarily between April and May. Much of Kenya sits at higher elevations, prompting cooler weather for trekkers, while inland Kenya tends to be more arid and changeable.  Safari drives warrant layers for sure, to accommodate for the cooler temperatures morning and evening, along with the warm ups during midday times.
