June weather and where to go
Early June may still experience some of the rains brought in by the kusi monsoon. However, as the month progresses the cooler, drier weather develops. Please note: the above chart shows averages based on the Masai Mara, apart from water temperature which is given for the Kenyan Coast.
The climate throughout June becomes much more comfortable than the preceding months, particularly in the highlands. Although drier, it is likely to remain cloudy keeping sun and higher temperatures at bay. This can be a great time to travel with children as you don’t need to worry about humidity and constant sun cream application.
June can be slightly quieter than the later months due to the increased popularity surrounding the wildebeest migration season combined with the school summer holidays. This makes it an ideal time to visit popular parks and reserves without having to deal with larger crowds.
Wildlife viewing is best in the dry season, so June to October are the most popular months to visit.
