ZAMBIA

The birthplace of the walking safari, Zambia will undoubtedly offer you an unforgettable wildlife experience and allow you to re-connect completely with nature.

When To Go

Zambia’s cool dry season runs from May to August. During this season temperatures drop at night, but the days are pleasantly mild. This is also the best time for game viewing because the foliage thins out making sightings easier and also animals concentrate at water sources. September to November is also a good time for game, however this is the hot dry season so temperatures are higher.

The wet season, or green season, from mid-November to mid-April is ideal for bird-watching and the bush is thick, green and beautiful. Many Zambian safari lodges also close during the rainy season due to flooding. The best time to visit Victoria Falls is the end of the rainy season, March to May, when the falls are in peak flow.
