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.
