When to Go

December - March - Better known as the ‘Emerald Season’ these are the rainy months around Livingstone and also the height of summer. Dramatic thunderstorms are present some afternoons and the weather is hot and humid, with temperatures reaching well over 30 °C in the daytime.

April – June - Temperatures during the day are warm at around 25-30 °C and the rains start to slowly dissipate. The Falls are also at its fullest at this time of the year and Is the only period that the Lunar Rainbow can be viewed at its best.

July – August  - Although this is peak wintertime, you can expect warm and sunny days 20-28 °C, but it’s best to bring warm layers for the cool evening temperatures at Taita. This time is peak season in Zambia and also prime game viewing months nearby the Chobe National Park, Hwange and Mosi-o-Tunya.
