My Itinerary in Zambia in 2008
Travellers to southern Africa have two choices for travel timing:
- Dry season: lower water levels mean a less spectacular Victoria Falls, however the game animals are much easier to find since they need what water is left, and the flies and mosquitoes are virtually nowhere to be found. Vegetation will be dry and colourless.
- Wet season: higher water levels mean you will see Victoria Falls at its best and get wet in the process. Game animals will be harder to find and flies and mosquitoes will seek you out (with or without bug spray and mosquito nets). Vegetation will be a lush green, and the possibility of spontaneous wildflower blooms exists.
