Victoria Falls in July

Climate

July is the coolest month of the year: night time temperatures drop to 7C, while day time temperatures are in the mid-20s. Be sure to pack warm clothes for night time and early morning game drives and activities.

Highlights of the month

July is a popular month to visit Victoria Falls for the clear blue skies, sunshine and for ideal views of the falls: the river is not at its fullest, so the mist and spray have decreased from the earlier months in the year and you’ll get perfect panoramas.

The highly endangered wild dogs

July is a great time of year for game viewing in the Zambezi National Park in Zimbabwe and Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park in Zambia.
