Best time to visit Kafue

  • June to October – the wetlands start to dry up from June onwards, drawing the game closer and closer to the permanent sources of water. Camps open – 1 June to 31 October when the rains start.
  • November – the game is concentrated on finding the scarce food and water sources until the rains start to fall again in December
