When’s the best time to visit Samburu

The dry season in Kenya is from June to October inclusive.  In November there are “short” rains and the main rains fall from March to mid-May. Samburu is a very hot area because of the desert like conditions and it is also at a lower altitude than other parts of Kenya.

The days are generally hot and dry with nights a bit cooler. Average maximum temperatures are around 30°C (85°F) with lows of about 20°C.

In between the two rainy seasons, it is hot and dry.

Maximum rainfall is about 350 mm.

During the “green” season, the whole area comes alive with grass and wild flowers, and the Ewaso Nyiro River is in fuller flow.
