After the long rainy season, landscapes will be verdant giving plenty of sustenance for rhinos and elephants roaming through the bush. It may make smaller wildlife more difficult to see but your guides are experts at seeking out wildlife in these conditions so will assist you in having the very best encounters possible.
May is also a great time to witness Victoria Falls as water levels will still be high. However, thanks to there being slightly less spray than April, photographing this stunning spectacle will be somewhat easier. You’ll be able to capture the power of the Falls by walking round the national park but we also recommend booking a helicopter flight to see Victoria Falls from a different perspective.
