Although Zambia lies in the tropics, the height of the plateau ensures that the local weather is seldom unpleasantly hot, except in the valleys. There are three seasons: the cool, dry winter season from May to September; the hot, dry season in October and November; and the wet season, which is even hotter, from December to April. Zambia is a vast, land-locked tropical plateau in southern Africa bordered by way of Angola to the west, the Democratic Republic of Congo to the north, Tanzania to the northeast, Malawi to the east, Mozambique to the southeast, Zimbabwe and Botswana to the south and the Caprivi Strip of Namibia to the southwest.

The Zambezi River, together with Lake Kariba, forms the frontier with Zimbabwe and lies at Zambia’s lowest point in altitude. Victoria Falls, fashioned via the Zambezi tumbling over a cli into the Batoka Gorge, is one of the most spectacular points of interest in Africa (if not the world). The development of the Kariba Dam in the 1950s created Lake Kariba, which has the largest reservoir volume in the world.

The Zambian capital, Lusaka, lies roughly in the center of the country, a region of thinly wooded bush. In the east and northeast, the use of a rises to a plateau 1,200m (3,937ft) high, protected by deciduous savannah, small trees, grassy plains or marshland.
In central Zambia, South Luangwa National Park, east of Lusaka, and Kafue National Park, west of Lusaka, are magnificent expanses of riverside grassland, woodland and wooded area with some of the densest and most diverse populations of wild animals in Africa.
