Kenya in June


Emerging from the long rains, June is a great time of year to be on safari, with pleasant temperatures and low humidity – and wildlife sightings on the rise.

What's the weather going to be like in Kenya in June?

  • Days are comfortable and nights are occasionally cool at high altitudes
  • Drier and cooler conditions predominate as we emerge from the long rains
  • Temperatures rarely soar, due to cloudy conditions
  • It can be pretty variable, so we suggest packing lots of layers and a light waterproof
  • The kusi monsoon sometimes brings rains at the beginning of June

What are the highlights of visiting Kenya in June?

  • Camps and lodges start to book up, but June is quieter than July and August, which are peak Great Migration months and also school holidays
  • As it’s dry overall, this is one of Kenya’s best months for wildlife viewing – the lack of sun and humidity makes for less concern about applying sunscreen and a comfortable time to be on safari, especially if you’re travelling with children
  • Once the weather has dried up, there are no mosquitoes
  • Amboseli National Park is excellent for seeing elephant
  • As water sources dry up, animals cluster around waterholes and rivers, resulting in easier sightings
  • Fish eagle and pygmy kingfisher can be spotted in Meru National Park, where the central waterways are still flowing following the long rains
  • There are plenty of opportunities to photograph wildlife around waterholes

Any Lowlights?

  • Accommodation can book up quickly
  • Costs are typically high season rates
  • Where grasses are still tall, it’s difficult to spot wildlife
  • A few mosquitoes linger with patchy rains
  • June isn’t recommended for travellers hoping to see the Great Migration – wait until July!
