Zambezi and White Nile Season?

Anyone know when is the best time to kayak these rivers? I know they commercially run them something like 9 months of the year, and that they supposedly never get too low but rather too high.

Anyone been there? Other pertinent information other than time of year to go?

Wondering about spending a couple of weeks kayaking there this fall/winter.

Zam low, Nile anytime

Zambezi classic levels are Sept. - Dec (lower water).

Nile is 365 day deal, most boaters just prefer the drier seasons (if I remember correctly are about Jan-March and then again about July - Sept..I think!).
