Green Season in Zambia is a time of plenty, when animals take full advantage of the abundant food to give birth to their young, and when the Bush is at its most colourful. With parks empty of vehicles and prices a fraction of those in high season, this is a magical time for the safari enthusiast.
April is the height of the Green Season in Zambia, which begins in November. During this season it rains almost every day. In Zambia the vegetation is emerald, birds are breeding in plumage, and many of the animals have young with them. This is the low price season, but there are still excellent game viewing opportunities.
Book a safari holiday to Zambia and experience its most famous attractions: South Luangwa National Park, one of the leading game parks on the continent, as well as the stunning Victoria Falls. Zambia has also traditionally been the home of the walking safari.
