Best Time to Travel
In Zimbabwe, the rainy season is usually December, January, February and March; the further north you are, the earlier the precipitation arrives and the later it leaves. Zimbabwe’s higher eastern areas usually receive more rainfall than the lower-lying western ones.
By April and May most of the rain is gone and the landscape is starting to dry out
Nights in June, July and August become chilly, but daytime weather is spectacular. This is the peak season and game viewing is abundant.
September and October start to show a rise in temperatures. Zimbabwe’s lower-lying rift valley – Mana Pools – can get very hot in October. During this time, you’ll see some fantastic game, as the Zimbabwe’s wildlife concentrates around watering holes.
