Victoria Falls in October

Climate

October is known as “Suicide Month”: this is the hottest month of the year with an average of 34C for day time temperatures but the highs can go above 40C.

Highlights of the Month

With no rains for months, the water in the Zambezi River starts to run low and by the end of the month, in some years, the falls can dry up in Zambia.

Coming right at the end of the dry season, October is an excellent month for wildlife viewing in the Zambezi National Park in Zimbabwe and Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park in Zambia.

It’s extremely hot in October and many people choose not to travel at this time of year because of the temperatures.
