Where To Go On Safari In February

February is reputed to be the month of love, and there’s undeniable romance in an African safari in February. Whether you get seduced by salt pans, fall for the adorable brand-new wildebeest, feel an attraction toward the most romantic safari lodges in Africa, or marvel at nature’s tough love with only the fittest surviving, we’ve selected five of the best safari destinations for a safari in February.

Makgadikgadi Pans safari in February

By February, the summer rains have transformed Botswana’s salt pans into a magnet for flamingoes. The Makgadikgadi becomes the perfect place to pan for birding gold (or pink) and Botswana’s little known but no less spectacular migrating Zebra, which come for the lush seasonal grazing.

Mount Kilimanjaro provides the ultimate safari in February backdrop: with game from the dry plains being drawn to the well-watered Chyulu Hills, the wildlife viewing is excellent.

Northern Kenya safari in February

Water, like love, can sometimes be hard to find. During northern Kenya’s dry seasons (June to October and December to March), the Ewaso Ngiro River in Samburu National Park is one of very few reliable sources.
