Zambia in June


June is one of the best value months to visit Zambia – it’s the beginning of walking safari season, and water levels are medium to low at Victoria Falls.

What's the weather going to be like in Zambia in June?

  • Warm days with cool nights
  • June is the start of the dry season, featuring cloudless skies and virtually no rain all month
  • Day temperatures are pleasant and night temperatures continue to drop
  • We recommend bringing warm layers for early morning walks and game drives as well as for the evenings.

What are the highlights of visiting Zambia in June?

  • All camps are open
  • Rates are reasonable, as it’s not yet high season – Chiawa Camp and Old Mondoro have excellent special offers at this time of year
  • The ground is drying out, but the scenery remains lush and green
  • Rivers are still high after many months of rain
  • Humidity is low, so there are fewer bugs and mosquitoes
  • There are hardly any other travellers
  • Wildlife is becoming easier to spot as the bush dries out
  • June marks the start of the walking safari season
  • It’s an excellent time to visit Victoria Falls, as water levels are medium to low and the spray doesn’t impede the view
  • Photo opportunities abound, including wildlife and the world’s largest waterfall.

Any lowlights?

  • Some nights can be very cold
  • Morning game drives are pretty chilly.
