Top Destinations Zambia

  • Zambia is known as the land of the legendary African walking safari. It offers remarkable natural beauty, home to the spectacular Victoria Falls and the mighty Zambezi River where visitors can enjoy thrilling white water rafting excursions.

Best time to visit

You have an excellent chance of seeing lots of wildlife in Zambia during the Dry season (May to October) when the animals gather around rivers and waterholes. This will fit in nicely with a visit to Victoria Falls, which you can see most clearly from June to September. A Wet season safari (November to April) is much more challenging, as most parks and camps shut down because of the heavy rain.

Main Attractions

Zambia is an excellent safari destination, and most of the high-profile animals are relatively easily seen. South Luangwa, Lower Zambezi and Kafue are particularly good for leopard sightings, but wild dog and cheetah are harder to see. Black rhino is only present in North Luangwa and white rhino only in Mosi-oa-Tunya.

Climate

The Dry season in Zambia is a lovely time to visit – it’s divided into a cooler period (May to August) and a hotter one (September and October). Zambia is right in the tropics and gets lots of rain in the Wet season (November to April). If you arrive then, you’ll find that many areas are cut off, and that most camps in Kafue, Lower Zambezi and the more remote parks have shut down.

Experience

You can see lots of safari favorites in Zambia, like the elephant, zebra, hippo and buffalo. You also have a good chance of seeing lions and leopards, and the wetland antelope known as the lechwe. The white rhino and black rhino only live in a couple of Zambian parks and are very hard to find. You’d also be lucky to see a magnificent cheetah, or a wild dog.
