Home to the wondrous Victoria Falls, grand wildlife preserves and medieval ruins, it is no wonder that Zimbabwe was for years one of the most popular destinations in Africa. Today, though, political turmoil across the country has made many travellers wary of booking flights to Zimbabwe and those who do continue to travel should remain alert to potential trouble.

The main tourist areas and national parks, however, remain largely unaffected by the political troubles and the sights on offer here are awe-inspiring. The Victoria Falls is undoubtedly the reason most travellers book Zimbabwe flights. The country’s most popular tourist destination is one of the greatest natural wonders of the world. The waterfall is of such a vast size that the cloud of mist it creates can be seen up to 20 miles away. The area around Vic Falls is a haven for adventure seekers. Take a white-water rafting trip down the river, or stand on the bridge connecting Zimbabwe to Zambia and bungee jump into the Zambezi River gorge.

When is the best time to fly to Zimbabwe?

Peak season:

Zimbabwe’s summer is our winter. May, June and July are its coolest months, and the most pleasant time of the year to visit. To really see the Victoria Falls, the jewel in Zimbabwe’s crown, at its best, go between April and June when the Zambezi is in flood. The rainy season extends from November to March and this is when the land turns green and verdant. It is a better time to see animals as they drink from waterholes.

Off season:

The dry season runs to October, and you’ll be looking at parched earth some of the time. This is the best time, however, to find a good deal on a Zimbabwe flight.
