This morning we saw a huge herd of 1000+ buffalo coming down to drink at the river. It is rare to see a herd of such size in Luangwa.
We are now approaching the very height of the dry season with temperatures reaching 40C in the shade. The Luangwa River is pretty much the only source of water for animals.
If you can bear the temperatures, then this is the best time of year to visit South Luangwa and see incredible quantities of game.
