Although November can be hot, it is the onset of the green season and is an exciting period for wildlife activity, with wild dog and lion sightings good, as well as stunning carmine bee-eater colonies and mixed-species bird fishing parties. It is a great week for photographers and wildlife enthusiasts. When the first rains come the park takes on a fresh green appearance and the air becomes clear - the light perfect for photography. It is also the time that Mfuwe’s most famous residents - Wonky Tusk the elephant and her family - make an almost daily appearance at the lodge, marching through reception to take advantage of the mangoes in season around the camp. The South Luangwa is also celebrated as being Zambia’s big cat country and one of the best parks in Africa for leopard.
