Summer rains start to fall and Victoria Falls grows in size and power. Dry, seemingly barren plants spring into life, and birds are in their element feasting on plants and insects which pop out between the showers. Game viewing in the green season is excellent in the South Luangwa. With plenty of water in the rivers and lagoons you can take boat safaris as well as game drives and walks.
In the early parts of the year some areas of Namibia receive sparse rainfall and become particularly stark and beautiful. The haunting Skeleton Coast stretches along the Atlantic Ocean, once littered with whale bones. Land is dry but not barren, supporting plants, insects, and birds. Inland are the dramatic deserts of Damaraland home to desert-adapted rhino and elephant, neither of which the least bit concerned by the shortage of water.
