Victoria Falls in August

Safari Enquiry
Climate

August is another dry month, but it’s slightly warmer than July, with daytime averages of 29°C/84°F and nighttime temperatures of 10°C/50°F.

Highlights of the Month

August is one of the peak months for tourism in Victoria Falls. It’s a great time to view the falls and the best month for whitewater rafting. The Devil’s Pool usually opens near the end of this month, and swimming in this natural infinity pool is a highlight for many travelers. Wildlife viewing in August is excellent as vegetation is dry and thin, and animals have to drink in the Zambezi River, making them easy to spot.

Zebra's in the wild

August is a busy month, so expect to share attractions and activities with many other people. It’s the peak season, so hotel rates are at their highest.
