Just the Right Weather
The average winter (May through Mid August) high temperature ranges between 77-81°F (25- 27 °C), with the lows being about 45-50 °F (7-10 °C) which is not bad for winter.
The summer weather (mid August to end of April) is generally hot, sometimes getting very hot and wet when the rain season comes in mid November through April. Temperatures range from 90-93 °F (32-34 °C) high, and with the lows between 59-66 °F (15-19 °C).
From September through to November, the weather is usually very hot and dry and the landscape turns brown. However, this is the best season for game viewing due to reduced vegetation, with the animals congregating along the Zambezi river for water.
Make sure to bring a hat, eyeglasses and sun screen cream to avoid those irritating sun burns.
