Friday 19th January 2017, Lilongwe: Central African Wilderness Safaris (CAWS) recently launched its annual Green Season Specials for the local market and is offering Malawi residents unbeatable prices at its key properties throughout the rainy season. Special packages have also been prepared for select international markets in order to encourage guests to travel during the rains and explore the country’s key areas of wilderness.
The annual Green Season Specials for Malawi residents will be applicable at Mvuu Camp and Lodge in Liwonde National Park, Chelinda Lodge in Nyika National Park and Chintheche Inn on the Northern Lakeshore. Special flights will also be provided in partnership with Ulendo Airlink (however these are subject to availability). The discounts at the properties will be provided until 13th April 2017.
Commenting on the unique aspects of travelling during the Green Season, Chris Badger – Managing Director, CAWS stated: “As with other areas regionally the advantage of travelling during the rains is that unlike the heat of the dry season, the Green Season is known for its pleasant temperatures, beautiful scenery and spectacular views that are void of dust and smoke. The air is crisp and clear and ideal for game viewing, due to the added clarity. For itineraries that cover Liwonde National Park and Nyika National Park, the wildlife generally disperses into smaller herds a few months after the rains start, due to the availability of water sources. Whilst many species are seen in smaller numbers, this is more than compensated for by the lushness of grasses, floodplains and forests.”
Malawi’s landscapes transform during the rains, turning emerald green in colour and an abundance of wildflowers and orchids bloom. Additionally, there is a great deal of wildlife activity that occurs during the Green season, many species give birth to their young, several migrant birds return to the parks in search of warmer climates and you can expect to experience an array of diverse sightings and wildlife interactions.
