Victoria Falls in November

Climate

In November the summer rains begin, bringing a welcome relief from the intense heat of October, although it’s still very hot.

Highlights of the month

The Zambezi River is at its lowest level of the year, and Victoria Falls can completely dry up on the Zambian side, although the waterfalls flow year-round in Zimbabwe. It’s not the best time to see the falls if you want to experience their full power.

November is one of the best months of the year for white-water rafting: the rapids are more challenging because of the low water level in the river.

White water rafting is excellent this time of year

Migratory bird species start arriving in the area in November, marking the start of bird watching season.

November is the beginning of the low season in Victoria Falls – a good time to travel if you want to score on discounted hotel rates and packages.
