The water level of the Zambezi River varies remarkably throughout the year. The Victoria Falls region receives seasonal rainfall, and therefore the amount of water flowing over the Victoria Falls changes drastically.

The water level is at its lowest point around November each year. At this time of year the water falls mainly in the deeper section of the river on the Zimbabwean side of the Victoria Falls. During the low water season some areas of the Zambian side dry up completely leaving a gigantic crack of exposed bare rock in the earth. This may not be as spectacular as the Victoria Falls in full flood.

The water level is at its highest between April and May. During these months the Victoria Falls are a thundering wall of falling water and the spray from the falls can obscure the view.

So which time of year is best to visit Victoria Falls? The real answer is all year round. During the dryer months between June and September you are more likely to spot wildlife in Victoria Falls, but during the wetter months, the Victoria Falls themselves are more impressive.

During the Jurassic Period (150-200 million years ago), volcanic activity resulted in thick basalt deposits covering large parts of Southern Africa. As the lava cooled and solidified, cracks appeared in the hard basalt crust, which were filled with clay and lime. Erosion and the course of the mighty Zambezi River cut through these softer materials, forming the first of a series of waterfalls.

Adrenalin

So you like a good adrenaline rush do you? One of the most adventurous things to do while visiting Victoria Falls is bungee jumping. The 111-meter drop will give you four seconds to enjoy the view before you reach the bottom of your bungee, and you’re on your way up again. Just remember to bring your passport. The Zambezi River is the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe so you’ll need it when walking onto the bridge which connects the two countries. If the bungee jump doesn't tickle your fancy why not try a bridge swing or for the more passive the bridge slide. Alternatively why not take to the rapids and challenge yourself to a day of white water rafting on the World famous Zambezi rapids.
