The best time for safari, according to a long-accepted wisdom, is winter. Those who have gone during the summer months have seen this isn’t exactly true. Robin Pope Safaris, who operate in Zambia and Malawi, have made a video showing just how fantastic summer safari can be.

The video was shot in the South Luangwa area of Zambia.

“The Emerald Season has arrived in the South Luangwa!” said Robin Pope. “An underrated time of year (November-April), it offers incredible experiences – dramatic skies, increased numbers of bird species, great game, plenty of new growth & so much more!”
