Best time to go to

Zimbabwe has something to offer travellers year-round and thanks to its varied landscapes, you can pick and choose from a range of experiences. The dry season, from about May to October, is great for game viewing as the vegetation thins and wildlife are attracted to remaining water sources. It is often very cold during the middle of the year and temperatures do get quite high from mid-September. The best time to visit Victoria Falls is from June to July when the water is at its highest. With November comes the rainy season and this lasts until about April. This is a lovely time to visit Nyanga, which is very green during this time.

What our travellers are saying

Because of the easy way we communicated with our Viatu expert, it felt like planning our holidays with a friend. It made it really flexible and perfectly suitable for our needs. The accommodations that he suggested were just wonderful and a perfect mix of everything we needed.
