Introducing Zimbabwe

When is the best time to visit?
June to October is the dry season and the best time to view wildlife—animals are drawn to water sources, and low vegetation offers excellent visibility. Temperatures are moderate with cold mornings and evenings from June-August, while September and October are very hot (this is also when prices are highest). Rains can start as early as November, which makes for beautiful changes in the vegetation. The rainy season is in full swing from January through May, when you'll find hot, humid weather, and a drop in prices. During this time, there's still excellent game viewing in Hwange and Gonarezhou.

Where should you go?
Victoria Falls, the massive natural wonder on the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, should be on every visitor's list. This is a year-round destination, though the flow over the falls changes from full flood to less dramatic levels depending on the season. Mana Pools National Park on the banks of the Zambezi River has excellent walking safaris, and remote, southeastern Gonarezhou is a lesser-known safari park off the beaten path. Eastern Highlands offers mountainous vegetation and a totally different experience to the safari track, while Lake Kariba is Zimbabwe's version of a beach holiday—a relaxing way to end a trip.

How many days do you need?
Travelers with at least ten days will be able to see 3 regions at a comfortable pace, with time for multiple days of safari at more than one location. With a week or less, stick to Victoria Falls and one short safari.
