BEST TIME TO VISIT KAKAMEGA FOREST FOR A WESTERN KENYA SAFARI

Kakamega being a tropical rainforest has a temperate, warm climate and can be visited at any time during the year. Temperatures do not fluctuate much and the average day temperature remains around 86 F (30 C) from September right up to the month of January. The average nighttime temperature also stays around 53 F (12 C) all through the months from August to February. For the rest of the months, there might be a daytime fluctuation between 82 F (28 C) and 91 F (33 C) degrees and a nighttime of around 50 F (10 C). It rains more in Kakamega compared to other wilderness regions in Kenya. It also has two distinct wet seasons with minimal dry period. The long rains begin in March and last up to July dusting off by early August while the short rains begin in October and go on until December. The dry months with lesser showers are January, February, parts of August and September. This is when you see slightly more tourists exploring the forest because the greenery is less dense and it is easier to spot the smaller residents of Kakamega. Discerning AfricanMecca visitors seeking unspoiled wildernesses also like to add an extension trip to Kakamega Forest Reserve in the months of August to October when they are planning to spend time in the Masai Mara for the wildebeest migration or they might visit in the last week of December or Easter weekend to spend the festive holidays on a family vacation. The harsh winters of America and Europe are also a motivation to travel to Kenya, and you may see more footfalls in the forest in the months of December through February; though, not in high numbers. Whatever season you choose to visit, Kakamega will charm you with its pristine natural beauty of Western Kenya.
