Best Weather and Climate in Matusadona National Park in Zimbabwe

The best weather and climate in Matusadona National park in Zimbabwe is characterised with two seasons and these are; the wet season and the dry season.

Matusadona National Park has a warm to hot climate. September to April is hot, while May to August is cooler. Sunshine often follows the afternoon rains that take place during the Wet season, from November to March. During the Dry season (April to October) bright, sunlit skies are normal. Winter and summer are at opposite times of those seasons in Europe and North America and correspond to the Wet and Dry seasons.

The Matusadona National Park lies on the southern shores of Lake Kariba in the north west of Zimbabwe. Kariba is the vast body of water separating the countries of Zimbabwe and Zambia. This park is an unparalleled wilderness area measuring 1400 square kilometres.

It is sandwiched between the steep sided Sanyati gorge to the east, and the wider meandering Ume River to the west. The 700m high rugged Matusadona range of mountains form the essential escarpment that separates the park from the farmlands and civilisation further south.
