Weather In Camp

December, January, February and March – The rainy season
April and May – Most of the rain has been absorbed into the atmosphere, leaving behind a luscious green landscape. This time of year brings clear skies and mild temperatures.
June, July and August – While evenings are much cooler, the days are clear and warm. Warm clothing is essential for early morning game drives and evening wildlife expeditions.
September and October – Emerging from a cool winter, spring temperatures will inevitably start to rise. October is renowned for its heat. However, game viewing at this time of year is spectacular, with animals congregating around the river as water sources become scarce.
November weather is variable. The dry heat of October can linger late into the month. However, November often bears witness to the first of the summer rains, with rolling thunderstorms rocking the landscape in spectacular fashion.


While malaria is not prevalent in the Lower Zambezi Conservation Area, Zambia is considered a malaria area. We recommend that guests take the necessary precautions and consult their doctor regarding preventative medication before their arrival in Zambia.
