Widely referred to as the Emerald or Green Season, we like to think of it as the ‘Especial’ Season. And no, that’s not a typo – Especial means unique, striking, surprising, exclusive and distinct.
Which is exactly what you will experience during the Especial Season in East Africa. It’s that time of the year when the rains have cleared the air, and dry, dusty expanses burst into lush, green plains teeming with birds and wildlife.
It’s a photographer’s Utopia with dramatic, moody skies offering the perfect backdrop for striking images with great depth of light and colour. And with far less visitors around, you’re not pushing and prodding for the perfect spot. It’s comfortably quiet, game is surprisingly abundant and there’s great value with low season specials on offer.
It’s one of our favourite times of the year to travel, and to entice you to share in the secret pleasures of the Especial Season, we are offering 1 FREE night in our camps for every 3 nights booked.
