Most of Eastern Africa countries experience equatorial climate.This means that they experience high temperatures and moderate rainfall,which is received all year round or in seasons.The climate is ideal for agricultural purposes such as the growing of coffee and tea.However,recent changes in climate have led to drier conditions in the various countries.

The Climate zones of Eastern Africa are as follows:

1.Tropical wet and dry-Has two rainy seasons in a year with annual rainfall of over 1,500 mm.Average annual temperature of 26°C.
