Weather

Zimbabwe experiences 3 dramatic seasons. Traditionally the dry season, April to October, has been the time for game viewing as the vegetation is less lush allowing better opportunities to see. But many visitors like the wet season which is November to March, summer being a great time to view migrant birds from the North. Fishing is superb in September and October.
The average temperature in summer is between 25C to 35C (77 - 95 Fahrenheit) and in winter from 6C to 24C (43 - 75 Fahrenheit). Zimbabwe generally has a moderate climate with intense heat felt usually in the valleys.

Season Highlights

  • Hot and dry: From August to October, game concentrations are at their height toward the end of this period. October is also the hottest month.
  • Cool and dry: Warm, sunny days and cool nights characterise the period from May to August which are the dry winter months.
  • Warm and wet: From November to March, the rainy season is magnificent; vegetation takes on a vibrant green colour becoming a lush jungle.
