Best time to go to Victoria Falls

When visiting Victoria Falls, an important factor to consider is the water level of the falls. Water levels are highest from May to August, offering great visibility of the falls, but the absolutely perfect time is June and July. The water levels start to lower in August up to March, and this is when white water rafting is available. During the rainy season, the falls can be completely obscured by mist, from about November to March, while the dry season, from April to October, is great for game viewing in the area.
