Kenya is situated along the equator and enjoys a tropical climate with variations in temperatures, altitude and terrain within its different regions. Conditions vary across the country: the coastal region is warm and humid (20–30 degrees Celsius), the highlands are cooler (10–28 degrees Celsius) and the northern semi-arid region soars to temperatures of 20–40 degrees Celsius with minimal rainfall.
