February weather & where to go

February is the peak of the rainy season in Mozambique, and as such travelling to the country at this time is not preferable. The rain can last between a couple of hours to multiple days making travel within the country difficult due to the country’s infrastructure suffering from the conditions. However, the rain also brings renewed life to the landscape, with lush flora flowering across the country, attracting a variety of birds, butterflies and other wildlife.
