The rolling landscapes of the South Luangwa National Park takes on a whole new feel during the rainy summer months between January and April. At this time of year the Luangwa River, usually dry during the long rainless African winter, fills from bank to bank, providing relief to the animals and presenting an ideal location for an exhilarating boat safari.
Travelling out of season and combining the rustic feel of Kakuli with the colonial splendour of Chinzombo, you’ll enjoy two superb camps at a fraction of the cost. Known as the “Emerald Season”, the park at this time of year springs to life, with the short sharp showers clearing the air and turning the bush to a lush green. With the temperatures more bearable, the plains come alive with game, as the arrival of newborn animals brings with it the inevitable threat of predators.
If you are prepared for a little rain and some steamy days, this is a rewarding time to take a Zambian safari. Please note, the length of stay in each camp will be advised two weeks prior to travel.
Please note – the order of camps on this itinerary is subject to change and we will give you as much notice as possible, but this is the usual order of things.
