Best Time To Go On a Zambia Safari

The rains in Zambia come mostly in December, January, February and March.

By April and May most of the rain has faded away, leaving a landscape that’s still green, but starting to dry out. Night-time temperatures start to drop, especially in higher and more southerly locations.

In June, July and August the nights have become much cooler, but the days are clear and warm. Make sure you bring warm clothes to wrap up as some nights get very cold!

Most of Zambia’s small ‘walking bushcamps’ open at the start of June, when the roads have dried out sufficiently to allow access. This is the start of the ‘peak season’ – with often cloudless days and continually increasing game sightings.

Into September and October the temperatures climb: the lower-lying rift valleys – Lower Zambezi, Mana Pools and Luangwa Valley – can get very hot in October. However, you’ll see some superb game as the animals concentrate around the limited water sources.

November is variable; it can be hot and dry like October, or it can see the season’s first downpours. Often it’s a very interesting month as you can see both patterns on successive days.

South Luangwa National Park

The concentration of game around the Luangwa River is intense and the pristine wilderness is alive with a wonderful variety of game and birds including the large predators. Explore this magnificent park bordered by striking hills and crossed by dry river beds. Bird watching is superb in the valley and towards the end of the dry season, when the river and lagoons begin to recede, hundreds of water birds can be seen wading through the shallows.

Lower Zambezi National Park

Enormous herds of elephants are often seen at Lake Kariba’s edge very often up to 100-strong. Buffalo and waterbuck are common and the park also hosts good populations of lions and leopard.

Kafue National Park

One of the largest parks in Africa, Kafue National Park has abundant birdlife that includes many species that do not occur elsewhere in Southern Africa. The park hosts more than 150 species of mammals recorded, equally diverse with regular sightings of lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and cheetah and good numbers of plains game such as zebra and wildebeest.

Balloon Safari & Champagne Breakfast

Zambia sits at the crossroads between East and Southern Africa – if you’re looking for that little bit extra, why not combine your Zambia holiday with a beach break in Zanzibar,  a safari in Tanzania or a trip into the wilds of Botswana?
