Abstract
The interest at present being shown in Kenya Masailand stems from the various ecological problems which exist there and which have been 'Outlined by Glover and Gwynne (1961). In view of the further scientific studies which will undoubtedly be undertaken in this region it is thought advisable to present the available climatic data for the area in the hope that they will aid in the interpretation of any future Ecological observations. The area has previously been included in the more general climatic studies for East Africa (Griffiths, 1958; Kenworthy and GIover, J., 1958; Trapnell and Griffiths, 1960) with the relevant published informing being summarized by Glover, Walker and Gwynne (1961). Tohe following report is based upon the data held by the East African Meteorological Department, and the personal observations of the authors on the topography of the region and on its vegetation.
