March is another warm, humid, rainy month in Victoria Falls, with frequent afternoon thundershowers and average daytime highs of 31°C/88°F.
Highlights of the Month
The Zambezi River is full of water from the summer rains, which means that Victoria Falls is pumping at full volume. Expect to see a dramatic spectacle with a soundtrack of roaring thunder and lots of mist and spray (which can obscure the view).
March is another month for birders. The migratory species are still in the national parks and the trees around the falls. Wildlife viewing is difficult because of the lush vegetation at this time of the year.
Whitewater rafting usually ends in March or April because of the high water level in the Zambezi River.
March is nearing the end of the “green season,” or low season, when hotels offer their lowest rates on rooms.
