South Africa in February: Weather and where to go
As with January, February in South Africa has notable rainfall usually in the form of heavy downpours. This is somewhat unpredictable but is unlikely to perpetuate whole days and therefore safaris are still possible and pleasant.
Temperatures are still in the high 20s throughout the day and evening so layers won’t be necessary for game drives.
Thanks to the rainfall of the green season, antelope will give birth at this time to give their young the best chance of survival due to the availability of water supplies across the reserves. It is possible to see the calving season of impala, gemsbok, eland and plenty more so please ask our destination specialists for the best locations.
South African vegetation is at its thickest at the end of the rainy season and therefore wildlife can be difficult to view, however, predators won’t miss out on the chance to catch vulnerable prey during this calving period.
