Victoria Falls in February

Climate

February is another rainy and hot month in Victoria Falls. Though it will rain most days, usually the thundershowers clear up fairly quickly, leaving blue skies and sunshine.

Highlights of the month

February is a great month to see Victoria Falls if you want to experience the full dramatic power of the Zambezi River gushing down the gorge, although all of the mist and spray can make getting panoramic views difficult.

February is an excellent month for birdwatching, though it’s not ideal for wildlife viewing, and there’s a chance that the Zambezi National Park on the Zimbabwean side may close if it’s been raining heavily.

February is still the low season – known as the “green season” – in Victoria Falls, so hotels are offering lower rates.
