May marks the beginning of the dry winter season with almost no rainfall and a drop in temperatures (night time lows go down to 11C). Pack warm clothes to wear at night and in the early mornings.
Highlights of the Month
May has wonderful weather, with sunshine and blue skies. It’s a good time of year to travel to Victoria Falls to witness the astounding spectacle of a huge volume of water gushing down the gorge with a roar, although there’s less spray and mist than in March and April.
