Zambia in March


March is the final month of the rainy season – landscapes are super-lush, there are plenty of newborns to see on vehicle and walking safaris, and Victoria Falls is in full flow.

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

  • Days are warm, with a high chance of rain in the afternoons
  • It’s the last month of the rainy season
  • Temperatures during the day are high
  • We recommend packing your waterproofs!

What are the highlights of visiting Zambia in March?

  • Property availability is good at the few camps that are still open
  • Rates are low
  • There are few other travellers about, so safari properties and parks remain quiet
  • The small number of camps and lodges that remain open offer superb boating and walking safaris
  • It’s calving season for lots of animals, so there are plenty of newborns around
  • March is an exceptionally good month for bird watching
  • The scenery is green and lush
  • It’s a great time to see Victoria Falls, as the water levels are high after the rains
  • The Kuomboka festival, celebrating the king of the Lozi people’s move from the Zambezi’s Barotse floodplain to higher ground, sometimes falls in March
  • It’s the ideal month for taking photos of endearing newborns in parks and reserves.

Any lowlights?

  • Lots of Zambia’s safari properties are still closed because of flooded roads
  • Most afternoons involve rain showers
  • Numbers of bugs and mosquitoes are high as a result of the humidity
  • Victoria Falls is in full flow, sending lots of spray into the air – this can impede views of the falls.
