A MOON TOUR NOT TO MISS!
Visit the Victoria Falls Parks Rainforest on the dates indicated and enjoy magical unforgettable night experience in a guided moonlight viewing tour of the Falls.

For three nights each month (one on either side of the actual full moon date) the Rainforest is open for a dramatic lunar rainbow – a rare natural phenomenon (also known as a moon bow or lunar bow or white rainbow) produced by the moon

The best time to see Victoria Falls, moonbow, is during a full Moon, at times of high water – the months of January to July

The spray can be seen for miles, and on a clear, bright, moonlit night (usually from March to July ) it forms something called a “moonbow” — reputedly one of the most staggeringly beautiful natural phenomena on the planet

Photographically the moonbow is best taken from the Zambian Side from March-July

Victoria Falls has predictable, regular Moonbow's

To look on the delicate Lunar Rainbow, which the light of the moon shining through the spray creates, is a natural wonder without equal

 

When the Moon is Full, it rises at sunset and is visible all night long. At the end of the night, the Full Moon sets just as the Sun rises

This unique event, is visible the day before, the day of and the day after the full moon. For obvious reasons, Moonbow's are most easily viewed during full moon, just after astronomical twilight in the evening or before astronomical twilight in the morning (i.e. when the moon is low, not overhead) E&OE
