Blue Monkey Safari

Blue Monkey Safari: In full

This classic Zambian safari gives you 7 nights in Zambia's South Luangwa National Park at Nkwali, the flagship camp of Robin Pope Safaris, from where you can explore the area in detail through 4WD game drives (day & night) and short walking safaris.

In the rainy season, from mid-November through to early May, this is an ideal safari for those who have experienced Africa only when all is dry, and who would like to see Zambia's 'Emerald Season'. At this time of year, this would not usually be our choice for a 'first' safari – unless your budget is limited, and you're looking for a top-end safari camp at a particularly good-value cost.
