Best of Luangwa June 2019

Hides of South Luangwa: Join October Workshop

Dates:

In association with my friends at Robin Pope Safaris I am pleased to announce a new 7 day departure to South Luangwa from 9 to 16 June 2019. The trip which is guided by David Rogers costs $6312 per person and includes flights from Lusaka and 4 nights at Nsefu 3 nights at Nkwali,  There is no single supplement. These are two of the very best areas in the Luangwa and we will be spending time in areas where we can be assured of few other people and maximum time at sightings.

It’s a time when the temperatures are still reasonably cool but the game viewing and landscapes are outstanding. The highlights of Luangwa at this time are

  • very good daytime sightings of leopards
  • outstanding landscapes
  • very comfortable temperatures
  • dry conditions allowing for excellent game viewing.
  • wonderful birding

We also run trips during February (the Emerald Season) and November (the Predator season) which offer quite different experiences of this wonderful valley. The Emerald Season trip is also called the River Journey as we follow this magnificent river for 40 kilometres upstream into an area that is inaccessible at other times of year. Predator viewing is also excellent at this time and the birding is at its best. During November its hot and the predators have the upper hand. We follow the pattern of their movements waking up extra early. This is the time for carmine bee-eaters.

Availability: Yes
