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 low 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 competing for the perfect spot. It’s comfortably quiet, game is surprisingly abundant and there’s great value with low season specials on offer.
- Low season rates apply across all of our camps in the Serengeti. Save on accommodation so you don’t have to put a hole in your wallet.
- Our low season offers apply across all three of our Exclusive Camps and Lodges: Baker’s Lodge in Murchison Falls (source of the mighty Nile), Ishasha Wilderness Camp in Queen Elizabeth National Park (famous for its tree climbing lions), and Buhoma Lodge in Bwindi (gorilla trekking country).
