Victoria Falls is a beautiful waterfall on the Zambezi River between Zambia to the north and Zimbabwe to the south. It is among the largest waterfalls in the world.

Who discovered victoria falls? It was named after Queen Victoria by Dr. David Livingstone in 1855 and is one of the 7 known places in the world to see the Magical Moonbows (Rainbows at Night).

What are Magical Moonbows? Moonbows are rainbows caused by the moon light instead of the sun. They are rarer than rainbows because the weather and astronomical conditions have to be just right for them to appear. Also referred to as lunar rainbow, moon rainbow, spray-bows, moonbows, lunar bow and night rainbow. The best months to see Rainbows at Night is in June, July and August.

Best Time to Visit

The best time to visit Victoria Falls is during the dry season, which runs from April to October. During this time, the water level in the Zambezi River is low and the falls are at their most impressive. However, be aware that Livingstone can be quite hot during the day during the summer months. The shoulder seasons (November to March and November to December) offer cooler temperatures and fewer crowds. January to March is the rainy season, so be prepared for occasional downpours.

Great experience - professional yet personal, would highly recommend

I came to Zambia for work and wanted to extend with a few extra days. With a bit short notice and for a holiday weekend Ntanda Ventures and Sonja helped me book a bush break in South Luangwa. Communication was easy and I really enjoyed the professional/knowledgeable but personal connection. My preferences were heard, all my questions answered and we worked together on finding a good fit. I was travelling alone and Sonja quickly understood what I was looking for and made suggestions based on local knowledge and experience, exactly what I needed! Due to unforeseen weather changes we had to make some changes to the plan and Sonja made sure to check with me what I would prefer and be okay with, and checked in with me along the way - everything was taken care of so I only had to enjoy the trip. It was a last minute plan, but she made it very easy and enjoyable for me - if I were to come back I would surely reach out and book through them again.
