Dry Season in Zimbabwe
May to September
The best time to travel to Zimbabwe on a safari vacation is during the dry season, between May and September. The temperatures are mild and pleasant with the sky clear and blue, and there are also fewer mosquitos, due to the lack of rain.
These cooler, drier months are the optimum time for a Zimbabwe wildlife safari. Animals congregate around available water sources and the vegetation is starting to thin out, making for easy spotting of species like elephants, buffalo, lions, wild dogs, and a myriad of plains game species.
Best time to travel to Victoria Falls
May to September
If you intend to include Victoria Falls in your plans for a Zimbabwe holiday, aim to do so between May and September. Water levels are just right and the spray wouldn’t impede the view. August and September are also the best time for adrenaline activities and water sports, as the water levels are just right.
Wet Season in Zimbabwe
October to February is hot in Zimbabwe and daytime temperatures rarely dip below 30 degrees Celsius. Regular thunderstorms occur between November and March. The bush is very thick during this time, lush from the rain, making wildlife harder to find.
Best time to view Migratory Birds
October to February
This is a good time to spot baby animals as well as ticking off countless migratory bird species from your must-see list.
