The climate of Eldoret (Kenya)
Eldoret is a large city located in the western part of Kenya in the
Bonde la Ufa province. Because the city has an international airport
Eldoret is often used as a starting point for expeditions to more
remote places in Kenya. Many organized safaris start in Eldoret. Mount
Elgon National Park, the Cherngani Hills, Masai Mara or the Aberdare
National Park are all in the vicinity. The population of Eldoret is
quite young; this is because of the presence of the Moi University.
Eldoret is located at an altitude of 2,000 meters.
Eldoret has a
tropical monsoon climate with high precipitation figures all year
round. Most precipitation falls during spring and early summer.
Because of the altitude at which the city is situated temperatures are
lower here than in other places in Kenya. However, it hardly ever gets
really cold here, but we do advise you to pack a warm sweater. Night
time temperatures are around 10 degrees Celsius on average.
