The Zambezi River reaches its crescendo at the Victoria Falls where it crashes with a thunderous roar down a sheer cliff face into the Batoka Gorge, causing rising columns of spray that can be seen several kilometres away.
Known locally as Mosi-oa-Tunya or 'The Smoke That Thunders', Victoria Falls is the world's largest curtain of falling water and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.
Victoria Falls is also the only place in Africa where the magical natural phenomenon of a lunar rainbow can be witnessed at full moon during high water season.
Livingstone Island sits at the heart of the Victoria Falls. One of Africa’s most iconic natural and cultural heritage sites, this island also has a fascinating history.Discover
Devil’s Pool is famous for attracting thrill-seekers from around the world, offering daring swimmers the chance to experience a life-changing adventure that is completely safe.
Make no mistake, Angel’s Pool is not the more reserved option, as it is open when the Falls are at their most impressive and you can experience the full force of the mighty Zambezi River.
On the Zambian side of the Zambezi River sits Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, which, together with Victoria Falls, forms a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Encounter giraffe, elephant, rhino, buffalo, and various other wildlife by game drive or boat safari.
A lunar rainbow or moonbow happens when the moon shines bright enough to have its light reflected by raindrops, just as is the case for the sun.
Moonlight is much fainter of course, so the lunar rainbow is not nearly as intense as one created by sunlight. It is still an ethereal sight worth seeing, which you can do over the three days of full moon during high water levels at Victoria Falls.
Months that are famous for the best moonbows are April, May, June, July and August.
*The best moonbow months are highlighted below.
