CLIMATE

Summer                    SubSaharan tropical with rainy season running through November to March.

                          During this time it can be very humid. Winter very ambient with cool spells

                          in the evenings, use of hot water bottles at night. October is the hottest

                          month averaging in the high 30ºC.
WHAT TO TAKE

Practical footwear, especially for viewing the Victoria Falls and for adventure activities like white water

rafting and game walks. We recommend a really good supportive pair of Rafter sandals. Bring along

a weatherproof protective bag for electrical goods as the spray from the Vic Falls can saturate you

on your visit. Please remember to bring a universal plug adapter that can work with your electrical

devices like cameras, cellphones and laptops. We use imperial square plugs in Zambia and run off

a 220 volts supply – Botswana and South Africa use round plugs. Bring along practical clothing suitable

for the bush. Long sleeve shirts can be used for cooler nights and also for mosquito protection. Hats

and shorts will come in handy and remember to bring sunscreen. If you intend to raft you should bring

along a really good high factor sun screen.

WARNING: Thorntree River Lodge is situated in a malaria area. You are strongly advised to seek

medical advice prior to your safari and should, in our opinion, be on some form of anti-malarial

prophylactic prescribed by your GP.
