When to Visit the Falls

by sara&joachim

Practically, any time of the year is good for visiting the Victoria Falls. In countries like Zambia and Zimbabwe where the falls are situated, there are just two season: a hot and rainy one and a less hot and dry season. During the rainy season which more or less corresponds to the European summer, the Falls reach their maximum debit, but might be hard to admire and photograph due to the small water drops in the air that form a aura-like mist around the falls. On the other hand, the dry season will offer you better views, but the falls ‘thundering’ might not be as impressive.

Accommodation around the Falls

Finding accommodation is usually not a problem when it comes to such a popular destination. Both Zambia and Zimbabwe offer a wide selection of hotels and guest houses, from the luxurious spa hotels to the more modest but equally pleasing African style lodges. You might also want to check out one of the safari lodges in the area, which means that you’ll get to enjoy both the falls and the wildlife in the area in one shot.
