Today I start my first full-length photo safari of the Luangwa season with guests from Australia. I am looking forward to spending a week with them in the National Park at this stunning time of the year; while many people believe that the later months of September and October are better for safari, it’s hard to beat the crisp, detailed light of May and June.

Daily updates will appear on Instagram and a full-length report will be featured on this blog page after the safari, but for now, a few favourite images from early-season safaris over the last 10 years.
