A self-learning geographically aware handoff method and system is disclosed. The system includes a handoff manager (108), which receives information about a position and movement of the mobile nodes (102a, 102b, 102c and 102d) present in the mobile network (100). The handoff manager learns the coverage capabilities of the access points (104a, 104b, 104c and 104d) in the mobile network. It then determines a second access point, to which a mobile node will handoff to, based on the learned coverage capabilities. The handoff manager then informs the mobile node about the second access point.
