When to climb in Mount Kenya N.P.
The time of year you plan to hike Mt. Kenya is important. Obviously, if you choose to make the trip in the rainy season, your trip will at least be miserable, maybe a disaster. Of course weather is hard to predict, and you run the risk of being rained on anytime, but if you are serious about coming to Kenya to climb its highest mountain, plan on coming at a time of the year when you’ll have nice weather.
The best months to attempt the climb are late December through mid February, or mid July trough mid September. The long rains start in March and can run until July. The short rains start in October and run into November.
