Best Time To Travel To Zambia
We recommend visiting Zambia during the dry season from May to October. This is the best time of year to spot wildlife because the animals are in search of water sources and the shrubbery is thinner offering better chances to spot an animal laying in lower grasses. This is also a great time to visit Victoria Falls. We don’t particularly recommend going during the rainy season as plenty and/or most national parks will be closed due to road closures and excess rain. There are more opportunities to see and do more during the dry season; however, if the primary intent of the trip is birdwatching then the rainy season will be your season to visit!
