With the Luangwa River flowing freely and the flood pans high at Liuwa Plain, this is the only time for water safaris in these two spectacular national parks. The animals are framed by lush emerald landscapes and dramatic skies—perfect for photography. Everything bursts back to life after the dry season, with abundant grazing for herbivores, well-fed prey for predators and babies aplenty. In South Luangwa, this is the best time to see endangered wild dogs and to photograph leopards, and the only time to see the world’s largest colony of yellow-billed storks. With no hippos, crocs or tsetse flies in Liuwa Plain, you can hop out of your canoe for a swim amongst the water lilies and wildebeest.
Like any time of year, you’ll find award-winning guides and warm hospitality in both of these magical places.
