South Luangwa National Park is home to 60 mammal species, including four of the Big 5 (unfortunately, rhino were poached to extinction here over 20 years ago). It is especially famous for its large herds of elephant and buffalo; and for the abundant hippo population living in its lagoons. Lion are also relatively common, and South Luangwa is often cited as one of the best places in Southern Africa to spot the elusive leopard. There is more to South Luangwa than these safari icons, however. It is also home to the endangered African wild dog, 14 species of antelope and endemic subspecies including the Thornicroft’s giraffe and Crawshay’s zebra.

Rwanda has two rainy seasons: the first is from around February to June and the second from September through December. These are separated by two dry seasons: June to September, during which there is often no rainfall at all, and a shorter dry period from December to February. Typically the west and North-west of Rwanda receives more rainfall annually than the South-east and east of the country.
