    Victoria Falls makes a fantastic year round destination. Its location in the northern part of Southern Africa means that it experiences very mild winters.  The summer months from October to April are generally hotter. You can expect short, sharp afternoon thunderstorms as rain clouds gather throughout the day which in turn give rise to some excellent sunsets.

Batonka Guest Lodge is great value for money accommodation in Victoria Falls.
