Victoria Falls in April

Climate

The rainy season ends in April, which is a much drier month than March. The temperature drops a bit but it’s still warm with daytime temperatures in the high 20s.

Highlights of the month

In April, the Zambezi River is extremely full, so Victoria Falls is in full flow. It’s a good time of year to travel to the falls if you want to see the natural spectacle at its most dramatic, however the spray sent up by the waterfalls can make it difficult to see the falls at foot level, so at this time of year a helicopter ride will give you the best view. The views from Zambian side are also better during this full flow period.

April is the last month to spot migratory bird species before they move in in the dry winter.
