Victoria Falls is a summer rainfall area. The weather is mild in the day and cool at night in winter (May, June July) and warm to hot for all other months with October traditionally being the hottest month of the year when temperatures rise to the late 30's (Celsius)

Victoria Falls is a casual tourist town so shorts and T shirts are perfectly acceptable attire everywhere. The only exception is the Livingstone Room at The Victoria Falls Hotel which while is not longer as formal as days gone by has a dress code of smart casual.
