Best Time to Visit Zimbabwe

The best time to visit Zimbabwe will depend on the kinds of experiences you wish to have, and it is a year-round destination. The climate falls into the typical Southern Africa weather pattern with late October/November through to March being considered the wet season and from April to mid-October being the dry season when the vegetation typically dries up.

Best time to visit

It is worth noting that travellers to Zimbabwe in September/October can expect very high temperatures in the day and a dry, oppressive heat and in July, August certain areas can get surprisingly cold so hats, gloves and layers often can be required. Birdwatching is particularly good in the wet season as this is a time when a high number of migratory birds can be found in the country. To see the mighty Victoria Falls at their height and full flow, we would recommend April to June.
