June weather and when to go

June weather and when to go

As Zimbabwe lies in the southern hemisphere, June falls at the beginning of the winter season and although this means cooler temperatures it is actually the dry season. This is a great time to travel before parks get particularly busy (July to October) and also to combine wildlife viewing with Victoria Falls as this is perhaps the best time to visit this Wonder of the World. 


If you wish to add some adventurous activities to your safari, June is a good time to enjoy kayaking in Mana Pools; not only will the temperatures be pleasant but you may be joined by wildlife along the banks too!  

Zimbabwe rhino

June is generally a great time for wildlife sightings so head to Matobo Hills for rhino tracking, Hwange for elephants and Matusadona for crocs bathing on river banks.

Weather will start to get cooler from June onwards (dropping from 28/29 degrees in April and May to around 24/25 in June) so remember to bring plenty of warm layers for mornings and evenings. There will be little to no rainfall though, which means you can enjoy long dry days with clear blue skies.
