DRY SEASON

May to August has clear sunny days with fantastic game viewing. Nights turn cool so you’ll need an extra layer or two.

September becomes hot and the land is now very dry, outstanding game viewing as the animals congregate to water sources.

Spectacular Victoria Falls can be viewed best from June through to September when the water levels are low resulting in less spray to inhibit your view.

green SEASON

The rains fall from November through to March transforming the land which is now lush, green and dense, animals are more dispersed and guides work harder.

The wet season brings promise of new life everywhere and animals are giving birth.

Migrating birds have arrived and many birds are in their breeding plumage, this is a spectacular time for bird watchers.

SHOULDER SEASON

By April most of the rain should cease. The days are warmer and the land begins to dry out. Temperatures drop at night.

October sees a rise in temperature where the days become very hot and the land parched. Excellent time for game viewing.

November can be unpredictable, with either very hot dry spells or the beginning of the rainy season.
