Victoria Falls in January

Climate

January is mid-summer in Victoria Falls. It’s hot (the maximum average temperature is 31°C/88°F) and rainy, with afternoon thundershowers most afternoons. It’s the wettest month of the year.

Highlights of the Month

The Zambezi River is starting to rise from the summer rains, which means there’s a lot of mist and spray at Victoria Falls.

While wildlife viewing is not ideal in January (and the Zambezi National Park may close after heavy rains), this is the best bird-watching season, as migratory species are present.

You can still go whitewater rafting in January, although it’s not the best time of year due to the higher water level. The Devil’s Pool usually closes for swimming early in the month.

January is the low season for travel to Victoria Falls, which means you can pick up some great discounts on lodging and all-inclusive packages.
