Climate Conditions

Zimbabwe's climate is semi-arid. Though it is hot and dry for much of the year, there is a rainy season, which runs through the summer months. Rainfall tends to be erratic, unpredictable and highly regional. As a desert region, there are large temperature fluctuations between day and night, and between summer and winter.
Early mornings and evenings may be cold and frosty in winter (May-Sep). On all our tours, it's best to bring warm clothing - raincoat, warm hat, socks etc. - as across Africa wet/dry and hot/cool climatic periods change invariably.
