Zambia Overview

Why should I travel to Zambia? Apart from being the site of the magnificent Victoria Falls, Zambia also offers game-rich wildlife parks that are relatively unspoiled by mass tourism. For the more adventurous, there are walking safaris and canoeing trips along the Zambezi River.

When is the best time to see animals in Zambia? Gameviewing is best during the dry season from Jun-Oct when the animals congregate at remaining waterholes.

What is the climate like in Zambia? There are 3 distinct seasons – cool and dry from May-July (23°-25°C), hot and dry from August-October (30°-40°C), and warm and wet from November-April (28°-35°C).

What can I combine Zambia with? Zambia’s neighbours – Botswana, Malawi or Zimbabwe – which all offer amazing scenery and wildlife. Or combine with South Africa and explore picturesque Cape Town, Table Mountain and the Cape Winelands.

How to get to Zambia? There are regular flights daily from Johannesburg in South Africa to Lusaka, where you can board connecting flights to a range of safari camps. There are also regular flights from Jo’burg into Livingstone, a large town close to the Victoria Falls. It is also possible to fly to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and then transfer by road to Zambia.
