February weather and where to go
As with January, the rains depend on your chosen location in Tanzania. Northern parks are likely to see drier periods while western parks remain fairly rainy throughout.The chart below shows the averages for the Serengeti throughout the month and the comparative average rainfall in Zanzibar
February is definitely the best time of year to see wildebeest calving. This usually happens in Ndutu in the southern part of the Serengeti where millions of wildebeest congregate to feed on the grasses and give birth to their calves. Around 500,000 wildebeest calves are born which makes for a great sight on safari, perhaps glimpsing their first teetering steps in their new habitat.
This does also mean that there will be plenty of predators in the surrounding areas waiting to make the most of the numerous prey on offer.
