Water levels in September/October 2023

I am planning a trip to East Africa for September. Considering adding Victoria Falls, but I'm hearing the falls themselves may be dry-ish that time of year. Is it worth adding the falls in at that time of year or should I skip them this trip and plan them for another time?

Victoria Falls water levels
by: Tony


Water levels in September and October are fairly consistent year on year as the peak flow has subsided by then. Personally, this is one of my favourite times of year and I think the water levels are perfect then, not too high and not too low. If you can plan to come in September that is better as it gets towards the end of October, the level will drop off and possibly get a bit too low.
The water flow on the Zimbabwe side never dries up it is only in Zambia that the water stops flowing. That section of the Falls is higher. In Zambia the falls will be dry in November. October also gets very hot so September is a better month.

Hope that helps.
