Green Season, South Luangwa Valley, Zambia

Green Season, South Luangwa Valley, Zambia

20th - 27th May 2024 - FULLY BOOKED

Considered by many to be one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world, Zambia offers the opportunity for an incredible photographic safari. 

Particularly in the South Luangwa National Park, where the concentration of animals and birds is among the most intense in Africa; it is home to sixty species of mammals, including elephant, lion, zebra, giraffe, buffalo, hippo and antelope, and has a reputation of being one of the best places in Africa to see leopard and African wild dog. 

The month of May is one of the best times for wildlife-viewing, as the Green (Emerald) season draws to an end, following the seasonal rains that fall between November and early April. The vegetation is verdant providing an abundance of food necessary to sustain the large numbers of newly born animals, especially among the herds of herbivores. This proliferation of young, vulnerable creatures gives rise to a significantly heightened level of activity by the primary predators, with the potential for extraordinary sightings.  

May is also an exceptional time for watching and photographing birds in this region, with the number of endemic species swelled by an influx of migratory species. Many birds will be exhibiting their colourful breeding plumage and associated mating displays. The lush vegetation and abundance of water draw wading flocks of herons, egrets and storks, along with several species of geese and ducks, while weavers are busy creating colonies of nests that hang over lagoons.
