The wet season from November to April is also worth considering. Despite occasional afternoon showers, the landscapes burst into a lush green and it's the perfect time to witness the Victoria Falls in all its thundering glory. Just remember, no matter when you choose to visit, Zimbabwe is sure to offer a unique and memorable experience.
