What’s the weather like in Kenya in October?
Kenya is a fascinating country in East Africa, offering plenty of spectacular scenery along its Indian Ocean coastline. Since it’s in the southern hemisphere, the seasons in Kenya are opposite to the UK, so this means that winter’s coming to an end across the country in October. The weather varies depending on which part of Kenya you visit, but temperatures are very warm wherever you go at this time. For some parts of the country, this is the start of the second wet season of the year, with some regions expecting lots more rain than others.
The capital city, Nairobi, is one of the cooler spots in Kenya at this time of year, with an average temperature of 20°C. Highs reach 26°C, while the low falls to a cool 11°C after dark. With 40mm of rain spread across seven days, it’s much drier than Mombasa, over on the Indian Ocean coast, which expects 100mm of rain over 11 days this month. Mombasa is a touch warmer though, with an average temperature of 26°C, while the sea’s a lovely 27°C this month. Kisumu on the shores of Lake Victoria has similar weather, although it’s cooler in the evenings here compared to Mombasa.
