Climate & Weather in Zimbabwe

Seasons are reversed from those in the Northern Hemisphere.  The best time to go is a matter of splitting the difference between comfort and optimum game viewing.  October - April, days are hot and generally sunny in the morning with possible afternoon thunderstorms. Daytime temperatures can rise to 30ºC (86 degrees F) and night temperatures drop to around 14ºC - 16ºC (57 to 60 degrees F). The temperatures given are those for the main centres but it is considerably warmer all year round in the low-lying areas such as Kariba, Victoria Falls, and the Zambezi Valley. The rainy season runs from November to March, although the Eastern Highlands are damp for most of the year.
