When to Visit

Though Zambia, with its moderate tropical climate, presents visitors with pleasant weather year-round, April to November is considered an excellent time to visit the country. During this period, the end of the rainy season brings life to Zambia's verdant landscapes and wildlife.

If you're planning a safari, the period from August to November is ideal due to the lower vegetation and increased wildlife visibility. Conversely, travelling between December and April invites the opportunity to witness Zambia's vibrant birdlife during the rainy season. Bear in mind, however, that some of Zambia's regions can be quite challenging to access during this time due to the rainfall.
