When is the best safari season to visit South Luangwa?
The best time to visit the South Luangwa is during the dry season (May to October), when the weather forces the wildlife to seek out any sources of water, making them easier to spot. During the wet season (November to April) the wildlife becomes more dispersed and harder to spot through the foliage, however visitors will be treated to fantastic sightings of wild dog and lion walking in the road (to keep their paws dry!).
The wet season also sees the arrival of a variety of bird species and is the best time for birding and canoeing and boat activities.
