Victoria Falls in early July - too much spray?

I'n wondering about a visit to Falls in the first week of July. Some advice is that there's too much spray to really see anything. I'd be grateful for any advice.

Yes you will have the spray in July but its not too much spray as the water levels start dropping in June till September, October its lowest and December it start raising up till May. the other thing i will say try go see the falls in the evenings with less wind that means less spray and the falls will be amazing compare morning visits.

You will love the experience of seeing the falls all year round - each time of year has its special appeal. July the spray will have dropped a fair bit - but still huge volumes of water crashing over the falls. Enjoy.

It's early June. How full are the Falls right now? Was water volume higher or lower this past rainy season?

Thus usually end of August, when the water has dropped a bit and we will start rafting below the falls as in this photo of Shockwave Rafting
