Dash to the Bush
The Emerald Season is so called due to the extraordinary colour of the bush once the rain starts to fall. Spend a week with us at Nkwali - boating (mid Dec-March), walking and game viewing - in this most wonderful time of the year. Although there is a rumour about saying the game is not at its peak - this is just not true. The game in the central area of the park, where Nkwali operates, is resident. The cats are territorial and we see them throughout the year. There are plenty of open areas and high ground that does not get wet. The game mostly congregates on the high ground and, of course, this is where the roads have been built! Another false rumour is that it rains all day. The mornings usually have beautiful blue skies with clouds building throughout the day leading to evening storms. Learn more about our season and climate.
So spend a week at this most glorious time of year at Nkwali Camp.
For more adventure, boat up to Nsefu for a few days during the week - River Journeys.
