Our recommendation for February
For travelers whose priority is big game viewing safaris, the majority of Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Namibia is best avoided at this time of year. Tanzania and Kenya, however, do not experience the heavy rains, and both are excellent for game viewing. The Great Migration's calving season is in full swing and all the cats are at their most active as they hunt among the large herds. Gorilla trekking is perfect in February, as Rwanda, like Kenya and Tanzania, is in its dry season.
