June Weather & When To Go
June is the last month of the shoulder season before the peak dry season commences. The weather is likely to be warm and dry and cloudless days will perpetuate; this makes it a lovely time to travel to Zambia. The bush will be starting to dry out so wildlife will slowly become easier to spot and landscapes will start opening up.
As the rains will be gone by June this signifies the beginning of the walking safari season. Zambia is probably the best known country in Africa for walking safaris usually done from remote bushcamps to give you a unique safari experience, and can be combined into most Zambia safaris in June if you so wish.
Camping out in the bush brings you into close proximity to wildlife and you may even hear hippos grunting or lions roaring in the night!
