September, Our Favorite Month

by Sarah Tuff

Forget the dog days of August: The dry season hits southern Africa in September, when elephants, zebras, impalas, and baboons lumber down to the 1,650-mile Zambezi River for a drink of water. The best way to get a look at all that wild game? From the river itself. Sign on with the expert guides from Bio Bio Expeditions, whose Zambezi Explorer trip departs only in September. You'll spend several days on two-person kayaks in the gentle waters above Victoria Falls, paddling past crocodiles and trumpeting elephants. Nights are spent in a charming mix of Boy-Scout-style tents by the river and swank safari lodges with bars and swimming pools. Enjoy the tranquillity: Once you're downriver from the Falls, those leisurely moments are lost in pounding Class IV and V rapids. Make no mistake: This is about as wild and woolly as any sane person is likely to want. Just imagine what the rapids would have looked like in wet season.
