Though your message was very short, I presume you want to know the best travel time to East Africa.

We have been to Kenya 2nd half September and 1st week October and we had great weather. Depending on the altitude of the wildparks mornings and evenings could be from fresh (I mean, we had to wear a light sweater) to really warm and very warm during the day. At Nairobi and Mombasa beach it was hot and the air was very humid. We have had only 1 hour of rain during the whole vacation.

May till July should be avoided because of heavy rainfall.

I you want to know the best time to Travel to Kenya this is February as the rain season ends in November and begins again in April. This meaning that in February it has dry for sometime there fore there are virtually no Mosquitos around, making life generally pleasant. There was an exception last year due to El Nino it rained most evening for a short while. Best of luck.

If game viewing is part of what you want to do, the time to go is during the dry season. The lack of watrer forces the game to concentrate around the water sources with the result that your can see them. There is also a time for migrations, which is quite a sight.

Just back yesterday from three wks. Kenya & Tanzania. I disagree with the whole water source theory. Tanzania had had short rains and everything was green already - no problem at all seeing LOTS of animals up close and personal. Kenya was drier with no rain yet, but animals presented scattered viewing. The only animals I ever saw congregated around a water hole was one herd of elephants (but we'd already seen many on the plains) and of course, the hippos. I thought January 15 to February 2 couldn't have been better. Happy to answer other questions.
