The ‘Secret Season’ with African Bush Camps

No two safari experiences are ever the same.  And why would you want them to be?  There is a thrill in the unexpected, the wild, raw nature of it all.  So too is there no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ time to indulge in a safari.

Traditionally, the green season (between the months of December and March), or the rainy season, is considered to be a quieter time in the safari industry.  The perception is that there are less wildlife sightings due to animals being more dispersed rather than concentrated around scarce water sources.  At African Bush Camps, they are acutely aware that it does not mean the animals are not there!  Hence their ‘rebranding’ of the ‘Green Season’ to the ‘Secret Season’.

Imagine lush, green bush contrasted against a bright blue sky?  Yes, rain can be expected but its generally in the form of afternoon thunderstorms which clear to blue skies!  The thunderstorms are an attraction in themselves as they move over dramatic landscapes.

And then there’s the colours….  an abundance of bird species are in their very best breeding plumage, putting on an incredible display of colour.

Photographers?  Rains bring vegetation alive with vivid colours and settles the dust and clears the air which is great for photography.
