When To Go
Important to get the season right if visiting Zambia. The dry season is from May to October and main rains are from November to March. Temperatures in June through August are generally cool and September to November it is hot. On the Zambia side of Victoria Falls waters can be very low from August to November with the greatest flows usually around May.
Upland plateau with dry savannah and woodland make for outstanding wildlife experiences. Bordered in the south by the mighty Zambezi River with its Victoria Falls and Lake Kariba. Dotted with excellent, well stocked and less frequented national parks, Zambia offers the wildlife adventurer amazing settings and activities, including its well-renowned walking safaris.
Livingstone and Victoria Falls: “The smoke that thunders” is one of the seven wonders of the world and at certain times of the year is at its most stunning from the Zambian side. Vast array of adventures but important to visit at right time of year.
Lower Zambezi: National park along the north bank of the Zambezi River with excellent lodges and camps, outstanding wildlife attracted by the permanent waters, games drives by vehicle, boat or on foot, canoeing and fishing.
South Luangwa: Great concentrations of wildlife in this beautiful park dominated by the Luangwa River. One of the best areas in Africa to experience a walking safari.
North Luangwa: Less developed and less frequented than its southerly neighbour. Walking safaris are the primary activity, with good game and birdlife.
Kafue: One of the largest parks in Africa with a great variety of wildlife. Excellent game viewing on the Busango Plains and along the Kafue River.
Liuwa Plain: A very remote wilderness with outstanding migratory birdlife. The vast, open plains also good for game.
