Lamu is best visited during the cooler winter months of July and August, or from late November until the end of March. May – early July and November are traditionally the rainy months, while March and April are the hottest.
If you enjoy a bit of cultural colour, visit in November to catch the Maulidi festival, which marks the birth of the Prophet Mohammed. This includes dhow and donkey racing and all sorts of home-grown entertainment and revelry.
