Green Season Safari

Hotel description

The green season in the Luangwa Valley is the most magical time of the year stretching from November to May, bringing with it thunderstorms of huge proportions, light rain showers and perfect light for those very special photographic moments. The migratory birds are on the way through giving the avid bird watcher opportunities only available at this time of the year to catch that elusive photo.

There is the joy of new life with many of the new babies dropping in November, the valley is teeming with baby elephants running between the legs of the family groups and baby impala and puku just learning how to jump and run as well as baby warthogs running behind their mothers.

A great time to avoid the busy crowds of the high season and a wonderful time for families to travel together.

Luangwa: The highlight of eastern Zambia is South Luangwa National Park. Locals refer to it simply as 'the South Park,' and it was formed as the Luangwa Game Park in 1904 before being turned to one of three game reserves in 1938. The spectacular park spans around 9050 square kilometers of the Luangwa Valley floor and ranges in elevation from 500 to 800 meters above sea level. There's no shortage of dramatic and interesting geography in this gorgeous game-rich park, which is flanked on the west and northern edges by the Muchinga Escarpment and on the south by the flowing Luangwa River.

Livingstone: Livingstone Town was founded in 1905 and was named after the famed Victorian missionary explorer, Dr David Livingstone, who extensively explored this area. As a large European community near to the Zambezi River crossing into Southern Rhodesia, the town was designated as Northern Rhodesia's capital in 1911. As the capital, it had significantly greater amenities than the rest of the country, as seen by the remaining Edwardian structures that line the city's main street. Livingstone was also the founder of the country's first newspaper. The capital was relocated to Lusaka in 1935, and the busy city has become a tranquil town with a distinct charm. Livingstone's closeness to the Zambezi River and the majestic Victoria Falls has led to it being a base for visitors from all over the world seeking to discover this World Wonder. Riverboarding, white water rafting, canoeing, horse riding trails, abseiling, as well as boat cruises, walks with lions, quad bike riding, kayaking, and trips to the Victoria Falls, Mukuni Cultural Village, and Livingstone's points of interest are all available in Livingstone.
