When to go
Between the months of December to March is the raining season when the bush begins to turn green and the Zambezi river raises and the temperatures increase. April and May are when the rains begin to retreat and the bush is covered in colour, these are the warmest months of the year. Between June and August is the dry season and the temperature is much cooler during the night. As September begins the temperatures begin to rise in the build-up to the raining season.
