What temps/weather to expect early November in Kenya?

Hello to all,
What temperatures would be average for early November in Laikipia & also Masaii Mara?
I've only been able to find average temperatures for Nairobi, & not Laikipia or the Mara.
We were in the Mara in August last year & it was cold (for us) in the mornings. Should we bring similar coats or will they be a waste of luggage space?
I know the weather's all a bit of a guess, but any thoghts would be appreciated

Thanks

Hi ifnaustralia

I found this for the Mara if it is of any use to you:

Still looking for Laikipia.

Where are you from in Australia?

Kind regards

Temperatures won't be that different from Nairobi as the elevation is similar. For evenings/early mornings in Nov, I find that I need a light jacket or sweater in Laikipia and the Mara.

Thank you Patty and Kaye N. We are expecting some rain, but from the weather link, perhaps there will be plenty of sunshine as well.
Kaye, we live in northern NSW- not that far from Brissie.
We are staying 3 nts Kicheche Laikipia, 6 nts Kicheche Bush & 3 nts Valley camp
Can't wait!!

I've never experienced continuous rain. There were always periods of sunshine in between and it can get fairly warm during the day. Have a great trip!

August is one of the 'winter' months, so not unusual for the morning/night temps to be colder than other months. Have seen some visitors in light=weight ski parkers... ugh! But, come November, that is moving into their 'summer' while mornings/night will be cool, still warmer than if in August. You still, however, need at least a fleece or layers. Then peel off as the sun rises or put on as it sets. Daytime temps will be mild, in the 70s or even low 80s as it might get the farther north you're located.
