Aardvark safari - emerald season
This trip to Zambia concentrates on the South Luangwa National Park in the Emerald Season – during the rains, staying for 9 nights in Kapani Lodge, which is in the heart of the prolific Mfuwe area – with time to explore the area in detail through 4WD game drives (day & night) and short walking safaris. It's ideal for those who have experienced Africa only when all is dry, but would not usually be our first choice for a first safari.
The weather in Zambia can be wet at this time of year. For the equivalent trip during the dry season (June to October), which could make a great first-time safari for people who like walking, see Aardvark safari (dry).
