Serengeti in February

cheetah and cub in ndutu

February has the same climate as January – warm days with highs of up to 29C, and some rain – an average of 14 days a month.

February is the best month to see wildebeest calving in the Ndutu Region and Southern Serengeti.

Travel tips

  • February is peak wildebeest calving season, so if you want to see baby animals being born – as well as lots of predator action – then this is the month to travel.

  • The landscapes are lush and verdant, although this does make seeing animals harder than in the dry season.

  • February is one of the best months for birdwatchers in the Serengeti, as the migratory species are in the park.
