Victoria Falls Tour
When to Go to Victoria Falls?
You can visit the falls year-round, but each season offers a very different experience.
You might as well say you have just two seasons – the rainy season and the dry season.
The Rainy Season (December to March)
The falls are more dramatic and full of water during the rainy season, so prepare to get yourself wet! This of course obscures your view as you walk across the bridge to view the falls, but it’s also a great chance to enjoy the experience of the falls themselves (these photos were taken at the end of the rainy season in April).
The Dry Season (April – October)
The water begins to slow down from April onwards, offering a completely different experience of the falls toward October. You can still visit the falls in November, but you are likely to find them somewhat underwhelming as there will not be much water actually falling from the falls!
When Can You Go to Devil’s Pool?
One of the most popular activities at Victoria Falls is to swim in Devil’s Pool – right on the edge of the falls and accessed from the Zambian side of Victoria Falls. You can only swim here with a trained guide during the drier months, from May through October.
