Zimbabwe, among other things, is without a doubt the best known gateway to witness the majestic Victoria Falls.
When To Go
Zimbabwe has a pleasant year round climate with blue skies and pleasant temperatures. For game viewing, the winter months, from May to October, are generally considered the best time to visit Zimbabwe.
The winter is characterised by mild temperatures, no rain and low malaria risk. The nights however tend to be much cooler. However, if you want to see the Victoria Falls, the end of the rainy season between April and May is the ideal time to go, as it can be a particularly dramatic time to see Victoria Falls in peak flow.
This vibrant land is characterised by its dramatic landscapes, rugged mountains, impressive wilderness and warm and welcoming people
