When to Visit Victoria Falls

The park is open year-round, but you will get a very different experience depending on the season in which you visit.

In the rainy season (December to March), the water volume will be higher, and the falls will be more dramatic. You are guaranteed to get wet if you cross the bridge or walk along the trails winding near the falls. On the other hand, it is precisely because the volume of water is so high that your viewing of the actual Falls will be obscured: by all the spray.

In the dry season, (April to October), the water volume will be lower, and by October, Victoria Falls might just be a trickle. You will get a clearer view of the rocky ledge beneath the falls, which is pretty spectacular by itself, but the falls might be somewhat underwhelming. This said, it is still a great experience visiting the falls in the dry season (for instance November), as you can experience both “falls” and the rocky gorge. You can have the chance to swim in Devil’s Pool.

How to get to Victoria Falls

From Victoria Falls International airport you can get a shuttle or taxi Victoria Falls where most hotels are located. Charges around $15. By bus you can drop off at Chinotimba Terminus or Kingdom Hotel if on Pathfinder or Intercape. Taxes can take you to any hotel. Rates range from $3-$10.
