February is not a peak month for travel in Rwanda, so prices can be quite good, especially if you book well in advance. And with great weather and wildlife across most African safari destinations, and beaches, a combination safari is an excellent choice. Rwanda and Kenya can be combined for an amazing gorillas, wildlife and beaches safari, same with Tanzania where you can track chimpanzees in Mahale. In fact, we have access to some great flight routes that fly straight from Rwanda to the heart of the Serengeti – you could always pop to the coast, or to Zanzibar for some beach time afterwards.
Bear in mind that in areas such as the Virunga Volcanoes, where you are at high altitude, can drop to quite low temperatures in the evenings, especially if and when the mists roll in. We always suggest packing a jumper for the evenings, so you can make the most of the magnificent views of the volcanoes without having to go inside to warm up.
