Victoria Falls

Travel Update Summer 2020: Most destinations, sites and parks reopened with limitations. Check the official websites and read our crucial ‘BEST TIME TO GO' and ‘AVOIDING THE CROWDS’ tips:


When Is the Best Time 

In the afternoon and depending on the season different waterlevel.
In the afternoon the falls shine in a wonderful bright warm light in contrast to the morning where you are faced with backlight and a glaring sunlight. The best time of the year is depending on what you expect to see. The highest flow is from February to May/July . Most of the viewpoints are too misty for a good picture and view but most impressive if viewed from the air. Low water level occurs from August until January. The rainy season last from November to March and it gets quite hot. Therefore our favorite months are August and September usually sunny and dry days. The level of the Zambesi river is still high enough for the falls but not too misty or even dry.

Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls
Review and Tips 

We spent two nights at the Victoria Falls Hotel which is in walking distance to the falls. At some hotels you are dependent on a bus transfer. August and September are also a good time for game viewing. We combined it with the Okavango Delta, Moremi and Chobe.

It is really worth doing the helicopter flight as late as possible. Sunset at the Victoria falls is really great.

The footpath is not well maintained. Be prepared you have to pay everything in USD. Locals are very poor therefore bought some wooden handcraft. Nice souvenirs and presents for family and friends.

We have been there end of November / beginning of December and it was one of the highlights of our travel through Botswana / Sambia. Worth to do it ! We stayed at Tongabezi Lodge and took an organized trip to Livingstone Island - from there "few steps" to the Devils Pool.
