TIPS FOR TRAVELING ZAMBIA

CURRENCY   Zambian kwacha (ZMK) is the local currency. US Dollars, Euro and Pound sterling are also accepted. International hotels will accept credit cards as well.

CLIMATE   The general height of the land gives Zambia a more pleasant climate than that experienced in most tropical countries. There are three seasons – cool and dry from May to August, hot and dry from September to November, and warm and wet from December to April.

WHAT TO PACK   If your safari is in winter, you will need a thick fleece or jacket for those early morning or evening game drives. Summers are hot with intermittent showers. Pack short and t-shirts with smart casual clothes for evening dining. A costume is a must as most lodges now have swimming pools for cooling off in the evening. Pack sunscreen, comfortable shoes, a hat and mosquito repellent too.

PEAK HOLIDAY SEASON   May to August is the best time of year to travel as it’s cooler, less wet and you have a greater chance of getting some good wildlife sightings.
