The calving season in the Southern Serengeti and Ndutu Conservation Area is now in full swing. Make the most of the short-grass plains and woodlands to view the migration from above in a hot air balloon.
February is Zanzibar’s hottest month and also one of its driest. Daytime highs regularly exceed 35°C with sultry, humid conditions that build and build until the clouds burst in March. The north-eastern ‘kaskasi’ wind, having reached its peak in January, eases off gradually as February unfolds.
The short dry season in central Africa continues into February making this a good time for trekking to see the Gorillas or Chimpanzees. You may start to see rain fall at the end of the month. The clouds building and dispersing can make for some spectacular skies and forest vistas. Underfoot is generally dry and good for trekking.
