November weather and when to go
November is a shoulder month in Zambia’s safari season and weather can be unpredictable. The earlier in the month you travel, days may remain hot and dry but no one can pinpoint exactly when the rains will arrive. The further north you visit, the earlier the rains arrive, so head to the southern parks of the Lower Zambezi and South Luangwa National Park for the best chances of dry weather and wildlife sightings. Even when the rainy season does commence it is likely to be sporadic showers which shouldn’t spoil complete days and you will be able to take game drives around the weather to make the most of the dry spells.
With the arrival of the rains comes a spectacular birding season so this can be a great time to travel if you’re a bit of a twitcher.
With a mix of endemic birdlife and migratory species there will be plenty of interesting birds to catch your eye.
