From sunset cruises on the Zambezi River, helicopter flips over the majestic Victoria Falls and house-boating on Lake Kariba, Zambia is abounding with natural wonders, abundance of wild life and opportunities to commune with nature. Give the capital city of Lusaka a bit of your time and venture around its markets, restaurants and hubs for younger children to enjoy. With expert guides, add a bush walk and overnight canoe safari in the lower Zambezi National Park to your stay and savor the sunbathing, fishing, crayfish-eating and sundowner life afloat on Lake Kariba.

With a sub-tropical climate, Zambia’s weather is more defined by a wet and dry season as opposed to summer and winter. The rainy season between December and April less the bush explode with a green vibrance but makes game viewing more challenging plus some lodges close due to flooding. The dry season between May and October calls to safari seekers looking to encounter more game and enjoy milder daytime temperatures (although September and October see temperatures heat up quite abit).
