Climate and travel season Zimbabwe
First, a trip to Zimbabwe is possible all year round, the climate is subtropical to tropical, which makes the summer months quite humid, but the winter months pleasantly cool. The year can be divided into three seasons.
During the months of May to August, winter prevails in Zimbabwe. Temperatures are pleasant at around 20°C to 25°C and the country is in the dry season. The months of July and August fall into the deep winter, so that the temperatures drop again in the evenings and early mornings. Warm clothing is now recommended on the early morning game drives.
September and October the temperatures start to rise again, spring begins. The rainy season is still coming, and the temperatures are on the warm side. For this reason, this is the best time to travel and experience the beauty of Zimbabwe. Wildlife viewing during this time is extremely good as the grasses and greenery in the bush slowly begin to fall away, making visibility excellent.
From mid-December to the end of March, the rainy season also begins in Zimbabwe. Temperatures rise to 38 °C’ during this time. The rain in Zimbabwe is characterized by short but heavy thundershowers, which are also an incredible spectacle of nature.
