What’s the weather like in Kenya in April?
Located in East Africa, Kenya is a stunning country with lots of diverse landscapes, ranging from soaring mountains to dry savannahs and beautiful beaches. There are differences in the weather depending on where you visit, and as it’s in the southern hemisphere, Kenya has opposite weather patterns to the UK. April is in the first wet season of the year, so you can expect plenty of rain virtually anywhere you go during this month. Temperatures are still high, though, and there’s lots of sunshine to enjoy across the country at this time too.
In April, the average temperature in the capital Nairobi is 20ºC, reaching highs of 25ºC and lows of 15ºC. The city expects 130mm of rain this month, which is a little bit less than in Mombassa on the Indian Ocean coast. It’s hotter here than in the capital, though, with Mombassa experiencing average highs of 30ºC, and lows of 23ºC. If you want to go for a dip in the sea, the water measures a warm 29ºC in April. Over on the shores of Lake Victoria, Kisumu has similarly hot weather, although the port city has 180mm of rain predicted over the course of 15 wet days.
