September weather and where to go
Similarly to August, September sees dry days and larger numbers of tourists due to the wildebeest migration, so you must remember to book well in advance.Please note: the below chart shows averages based on the Masai Mara, apart from water temperature which is given for the Kenyan Coast. As the possibility of seeing the migration dies down towards the end of the month, lodges and parks will steadily get quieter.
The weather will slowly begin to creep into the higher temperatures and with clear skies remaining this is a great time to take part in quieter safaris. Wildlife is still easily visible due to the clear landscapes and the need for animals to flock towards sources of water. Migratory birds will also be present, so budding photographers should have their binoculars and cameras at the ready!
September can still be a great time to see the migration as they wildebeest and zebra graze the plains, big cats and other predators pick off the tastiest ones, potentially leading to some wonderful action.
