Zambia, Zimbabwe & Malawi Custom Tour

Best Time to Go

Zambia has three seasons. December-April: warm and wet. May to August: dry and sunny with cold lights. September-November: hot and dry. Average temperatures in summer range from 25 ºC/77°F to 35 ºC/95°F, and in winter from 5ºC/42°F to 24ºC/75°F. November to April is the rainiest; most bush camps close as dirt roads are impassable. They reopen in May or June when the roads have dried out, and that is the beginning of peak season. From September onward, it becomes increasingly hot with warm evenings. October should be avoided for walking safaris.
