BEST TIME TO VISIT ZAMBIA

In Zambia summer months from December to February is so hot the weather and the high season. During the winter months from June to August the temperature is cold and it’s the low season. We believe the best time to visit Zambia is during the spring months from September to November when the days are fresh and sunny. The fall season from March to May can be a great time for visiting Zambia.
