The month of romance is a bit like January, albeit not as cold, at least north of the equator. This is a good time for a road-trip anywhere in India (except for Leh, as the roads are closed). Especially so if you are a wildlife enthusiast, as it is when the big animals come out into the open after the winters. Meanwhile, in the southern hemisphere, February is among the warmest months. South Africa, along with bright Australasia and Thailand make for good self-driving holidays around this time.
