INFORMATION TO HELP YOU PLAN YOUR SAFARI

Occasional rainfall persists in February, but this is still a popular month with travellers thanks to the sunshine, warm waters and wildlife activity.

At a Glance

Overview

  • Air and water temperatures will continue to use in February along with the level of rainfall, although the difference from January will not be hugely noticeable.
  • Humidity can be an issue during the warmer months of the year, but if you’re travelling on a cruise, the welcome breezes should be enough to cool you down.
  • Water clarity is good in February, presenting opportunities for both snorkellers and divers to observe life below the waves.
