Frequently Asked Questions

When is the best time to go?

The best time to visit Hwange National Park is during the dry season between July and October, when the vegetation is low and it is easy to spot the animals.  During the green season (late November to early April), there is a smaller volume of game because of the rains, though great game viewing can be had. This is a great time for photographers and birders as the bush is green, the waterholes are full of lilies and the birdlife is at its best. The heaviest rains occur in December and January, though the typical rains are short afternoon showers. 

Victoria Falls is best between May and September.  Water levels at the falls peak in May, and start dropping until they're barely a trickle as November approaches.
