Average time to visit
Zambia has a moderate to sub-tropical climate with three distinct seasons: from November to March is the Emerald, or the rainy season, April to July is Zambia's winter, when the weather is cool and dry, and August to October is summer, when the weather is hot and dry. In terms of game-viewing, the drier months, meaning a higher concentration of game at the permanent water sources, are a superb time to visit. Alternatively come for some superb bird-watching at the end of the rains.
To start planning your vacation to Mapazi Camp
This brand new authentic camping experience in the South Luangwa National Park offers an exclusive walking safari with one of Zambia's most famous female guides, Deb Tittle. Deb will be on hand to show you the secrets of this unspoiled wilderness.
Mapazi Camp is purely a walking safari camp offering set departure dates and three nights in total to offer a truly unforgettable experience. Deb has over twenty years guiding experience where she has spent plenty of time in the bush guiding and walking. You will spend time tracking big game, finding and watching some incredible birdlife and be privy to some of nature's best kept secrets.
With the main focus on Mapazi being the experience, Deb is sure to keep everyone interested with facts about the bush and exciting game experiences. Each walk will be tailored around the ability and interests of each individual party, with guests being able to broaden their own safari skills with their involvement and interpretation of the bush. When not guiding guests, the quiet months will serve as the opportunity for the camp to act as a base for anti-poaching patrols.
