Green Season Safaris: Save On Travel October to March

The “green season” is safari-speak for Africa’s summer, a time of year favored by many insiders who enjoy traveling when crowds are few and Africa’s wild babies are numerous and varied. Special pricing for green season safaris is now available for fall 2017 and early 2018.

Camps in some of Africa’s top game viewing reserves extend special pricing between October to March. Here are some great options in Southern Africa, including the Okavango Delta in Botswana, Zambia’s Kafue National Park and Victoria Falls, and Zimbabwe’s largest reserve, Hwange National Park.
