I’d never been to Tangala before and was suitably impressed with the house and garden. I met Maggie, the family’s housekeeper, who stays on to host guests. She a great lady and probably a super organizer!
is the best time of year for a safari holiday to Zambia?
Most of Zambia sits on a plateau at around 1,000 to 1,300 metres above sea level. This affords much of the country an idyllic climate of warm summers with plenty of rain, and mild dry winters with days of sunshine and cloudless skies.
These ‘winter months’ are comparatively cooler months in Zambia since it’s south of the equator. However a cool day in Zambia is equivalent to a hot summer’s day in many parts of the northern hemisphere, with the caveat that you may need a windproof and fleece on a morning game drive in an open vehicle. The bush camps in the South Luangwa National park reopen in June and these are great months for game viewing with vegetation dying back making it easy to spot wildlife. These are also the best months for seeing the Victoria Falls in full flow.
The heat gradually builds through these months as spring arrives and game viewing is superb as animals congregate in areas of permanent water. It can be particularly hot in lower lying areas such as the Lower Zambezi.
These are difficult months to travel in Zambia except for Livingstone and Liuwa Plains, both of which are accessible in the wet season. The remainder of the country becomes very difficult to get around, and there is significant rainfall. Safaris are good value in South Luangwa at this time of year, as prices fall to reflect the lower numbers of visitors, and you can take boat trips up the river at this time, surrounded by stunning migratory birds and atmospheric skies.
