Traveling during Africa’s green seasons – when rain is more common – nets the intrepid explorer a few surprises. Richer colors, lush landscapes, and active game are among the reasons these travel times are coveted both by photographers and seasoned safari-goers. Plan ahead for travel this spring and summer with our picks for enjoying green season at its finest.

Green Season Safari

BOTSWANA | Okavango Delta

The Delta swells with the seasonal rains, making March an ideal time of year for unique safaris by traditional mokoro canoe. Our Discover the Delta journey is quick and still robust, ideal for families ready to explore together.

Green Season Safari

ZAMBIA | South Luangwa

Chinzombo Sustainable Camp was the original base for conservationist Norman Carr during the green season, and its updated accommodations are a beautiful addition to the Luangwa Valley. Visit in April to see the valley in full bloom.
