Zambia Safari / Vic falls in February??

Jump to last reply

For several reasons it may be that February will be a good month for my wife and to make a second trip to Africa. We are talking about Feb, 2007, but one can't start dreaming too soon. My wife REALLY wants to se Vic Falls and so we are thinking that Zambia in general would be a good destination for our safari. (I want to go to the Ruwenzori, which is one reason for February).

In doing web research I see that the famous Zambian walking safaris are not going in February due to the rains. But what about just staying in a couple of lodges, and doing day walks or drives from from a base? Will we still have a good safari experience?

One website I found has the following warning: "Deep rains and flood conditions sometimes occur in January and February." This implies that travel in general and game viewing will be difficult. Is that the case?

Should we hold off on visiting Zambia until we do so during the peak season (and then can go walking and see more game) or is February a not un-reasonable time? Thanks in advance.
