Dry season months are between May and October – southern Africa’s winter season. These months characteristically have very little rain, with warm days and cool nights.
The best time to visit Victoria Falls during the dry months are between May and August. Typically, water will still flow consistently over the falls during these months, though with less volume compared to the wet months.
Less spray will provide more scenic views of the area and weaker currents will allow for river rafting and swimming in Devil’s Pool.
The early months of the dry season are also some of the best game-viewing months in the nearby Chobe National Park, making it easy to create a well-rounded luxury vacation between the two gorgeous areas.
August to October, at the end of dry season, will give the most panoramic views of the Victoria Falls area. However, water levels are lowest during these months and some of the falls may even dry up before the next wet season.
