Guided in the Green Season
Self-Drive in the Green Season
What makes this time of year the best?
The Green Season is one of our favorite times to travel - and more often than not our only time for our personal travel.
So here's why we love it...
The most popular destinations like Liwonde National Park, Cape Maclear and South Luangwa are without the crowds - You're spoilt with a swimming pool to yourself, a private viewing of a leopard kill and sometimes even a private game drive without the additional cost.
Not only the quiet though, we love it for the new life - Wildlife starts having babies and suddenly you're surrounded by cubs and lambs and calves. Not only the wildlife though as new foliage floods your eyes, making photography bright and vibrant.
Many animals tend to avoid the puddles and long grass so they stick to the road network - making viewing just as good as the dry season, and even a little bit closer!
The cost is Lower!! Green Season rates kick in and suddenly your dream safari is affordable with all the bells and whistles.
The sky is clear - By that we mean the dry season dust is nestled happily under a new blanket of rain and suddenly you can see for miles. Standing at the top of a mountain, the views are incredibly clear.
It's the perfect temperature...
The middle of the day is hot enough to enjoy swimming and sunbathing and the nights cool down with a fresh bout of rain.
The dramatic storms are probably the best. Looking out at the expanse of Lake Malawi with your gin and tonic, the sky glittering with lighting and the distant rumble of thunder. Watch the wall of water approach as you nestle into fluffy white sheets across the African Savannah...
