South Luangwa seasons

The best time for watching wildlife in South Luangwa National Park is during the dry season, which takes place from July to October. The Luangwa River becomes a gathering place for animals during the dry season, as they emerge from the high-temperature, bush areas in search of the refreshment of the river’s clean water. Some lodges will remain open during the ‘Emerald Season’ when the rains turn the dry landscape into a lush, green oasis and the birthing season begins. Here are some pros and cons for the wet and dry season.

April to October - Dry season

Pros:

• The thick bush thins out and wildlife is easier to spot.

• Animals will gather around the river.

• Best time to spot the more elusive species on your list.

• Expect bright days and lots of sunshine.

• Less chances for malaria, since there are fewer mosquitos.

3 days overland transfer to/fro Kafue National Park central

Lusaka
3 days

Overview: Kafue National Park is Zambia’s prime location for a ‘wild’ safari. It is utterly wild, untouched and jammed full of wildlife in a raw African setting. You will not see too many tourists in this park due to its unique geopolitical location. Sighting of wild animals is an exciting adventure as wild animals are sparsely populated due to the large size of the Kafue National Park. The difficulties of reaching the central part of the Park by road is what hinders most people visiting.
