The table below will show you temperatures throughout the year around Masai Mara in both Celsius and Fahrenheit. The temperatures throughout the year are reasonably mild and pleasant, albeit cooler in the evening. The different altitudes throughout the reserve cause varied climates.
Tip: Masai Mara is chillier than you might expect when in an area that's this close to the equator. This is mostly because of the varying altitudes of the reserve, which range from 1,435m to 2,143m (4,708ft to 7031ft). Pack light but bring warm layers if you are staying overnight or planning a safari at night or in the early morning.
