Highlights of the month

September is one of the best months of the year for visiting Victoria Falls: it’s not yet too hot, the falls are still flowing on both sides of the border and wildlife viewing and white-water rafting are excellent. It is busy though so you’ll pay high season rates and have to book ahead for lodging.
