The seasons are changing quickly in South Luangwa, and August always marks the transition between our winter and summer. We hardly had any winter at all, and based on the already hot temperatures we can say summer is here! The pool awaits you…
Late August and the arrival of summer, also means it’s time for the Southern Carmine Bee-Eaters to gather in great colonies and select their breeding sites.
They will spend the next few weeks building their nests (or proceeding to renovations of older ones if they choose the same site as last year) by digging deep in the river banks. This is the best time to observe these frantic little masons with their stunningly red and blue colours, so if you are visiting us soon, you’re in for a treat!
