  • It’s the start of the green season, bringing wet and humid conditions
  • Temperatures are high
  • Days are characterised by torrential afternoon downpours
  • Remember to pack your waterproofs!

What are the highlights of visiting Zambia in December?

Any lowlights?

  • Game viewing becomes more difficult as animals move away from the waterholes and into the thick bush
