Zambia in June

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!

Temperatures drop slightly from April and May to low 20s during the days and it will be somewhat cooler in mornings and evenings, especially when sitting around camp, so please remember to bring layers with you for early walks and games drives. this can be a great time to see lots of Zambia's wildlife.

Even though Zambia’s climate in June is extremely pleasant, it isn’t yet the peak season so you may benefit from lower prices at some lodges and camps.
