Best time to visit
Zambia has a sub-tropical climate and its weather is defined by a wet and dry season rather than summer and winter.
The best time for a safari in Zambia is during the Dry season, May to October, when animals congregate around the rivers and waterholes. During the Wet season, from November to April, dirt roads in the parks can become impassable, and most parks and camps close down.
The Mfuwe sector of South Luangwa National Park has sandy soil and all-weather roads, making it accessible year-round.
The best time to visit Victoria Falls on the Zambia side is at the end of the rainy season (March-May) when the Zambezi River is in full flood and the falls are at their most spectacular.
If you travel during the dry season (especially in October and November) there may be no water coming over the Zambian side of the falls, in which case you'll need to cross over to Zimbabwe to see the main falls. Certain activities such as white-water rafting are only on offer when water levels are low, and this is also the time to take a dip in the Devil’s Pool.
