Mombasa Weather in September


I'm going to Bamburi Beach for two weeks on 11th September 2007. Anyone else that is going to this hotel around this time I would love to hear from. I was wondering if anyone has travelled this time of year and what the weather is like? Does it still rain? Are there any restrictions when going on Safari at this time of year as I notice most people go dec-feb? Thanks

We've been a few times in September and mostly the weather has been good to us. However, in September last year we did have some rain in the Mara and two days of very heavy downpours in Mombasa. The weather patterns can no longer be relied on, as was proved in December - luckily, we just missed the floods though had to contend with the resultant road problems.

No problems with safaris at this time of year though it is high season and will be fairly busy. The Mara is THE place to go, in my opinion, as it's around migration time, but again this does depend on the weather between the Mara & Serengeti. The grass isn't high so, if the animals are there, it's easier to view them.

Really jealous, I've got to wait until after Christmas!

During this period of the year in Kenya mostly the season experience the short rains.

The weather is very favourable because is not as hot as it is usually like during other seasons. I and my mother in-law visit ed mombasa last year over September and we resided in the serena hotel.

The weather was good since it was not very hot .

we even had a flying package to the Mara sopa for 2 nights. we had fun and flew back to mombasa whereby the weather was still very favourable and quite stable. we used a tour company which was very realiable skyview of africa ltd which made our trip every enjoyable.To contact them write to safari@skyviewofafrica.com
