But the tide turned in mid-November, according to the Zambezi River Authority, which records water levels daily, and flows at Victoria Falls are once again on the rise.
Latest data shows the flow at the Victoria Falls was 227 cubic metres per second on December 2, compared to 207m3/s on November 26, and 189m3/s on November 19.
At its peak, after the rains in May, the flow over one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World often reaches more than 4,500m3/s, which is around 20 times higher than the lowest annual flow.
During the drier months there will always be more water in the Victoria Falls on the Zimbabwean side than on the Zambian side, simply because the Falls are slightly lower on the Zimbabwean side. At this time of the year some parts of the Falls do dry up.
When water is at its scarcest, the Victoria Falls is still splendid, and activities, such as white-water rafting and game viewing - when wildlife gathers at permanent water sources - are at their best.
With the ebb and flow of Nature, the Victoria Falls will soon be transformed once again into a 1.7km wide sheet of falling water.
The Victoria Falls may be admired at different times of the day, and from different angles, and in high or low water, still allowing the viewer to marvel in wonder.
Victoria Falls is a year-round destination, and we look forward to sharing it with you.
