Moonbow in Livingstone Zambia Ntanda Ventures.jpg


There are only 7 known places in the world to see the magical moonbows.


Moonbows are rainbows caused by the moon 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. (June, July and August are the best months to see them)

Feel It, See It, Breath It, Touch It, with Ntanda Ventures

Livingstone is heaven for nature lovers and bucket list tickers that need to see one or all of the seven natural wonders of the world during their lifetime. 


With plenty to do, a Livingstone vacation is great as a multi generational family travel holiday, but also perfect for solo travelers looking for adventure.

Most visitors go to the Victoria Falls during a full day tour. You then will visit Livingstone Island, the Devils Cataract, the Main Falls, the Horseshoe Falls and witness the spray from the Victoria Falls. Watching the white Rhinos in Victoria Falls national park during a walking safari is recommendable. 

The Falls area is a popular tourist destination, with a variety of hotels, restaurants, great food and other tourist-oriented businesses. There are countless activities available in the area, including safaris, fishing, and hikes. 

Livingstone is also a very good base for day trips to the famous Chobe national park in Botswana.

Best Time to Visit Victoria Falls


Depending on the experience you are looking for you can choose your best time to visit Victoria Falls. Directly after the rainy season in April, the falls are at their most impressive and big. During the Zambian winter (June, July, August) you have the highest change to see the rainbow.  The shoulder seasons (November to March and November to December) offer fewer crowds. January to March is the rainy season, so be prepared for occasional downpours.

Things to do in Livingstone / Victoria Falls

We have visited the Victoria falls countless times and we honestly don’t know how anyone could ever get tired of gazing at the beauty and feel the raw power of the natural forces of Mosi-oa-tunya, (“the smoke that thunders”) as the locals in Zambia call Victoria Falls. Underneath our other tips to include in Livingstone vacation packages.

  • Walk the Boiling pot - Walk down to the bottom of the Batoka Gorge at the Boiling Pot where you can see the fall coming down and swim in the pools.

  • Crossing The Knife Edge Bridge - a heart-stopping perspective of the falls. The walk on the knife edge bridge is truly an exhilarating feeling.

  • Livingstone Island tour - Experience the Victoria Falls from the perspective that David Livingstone had

  • Devil's Pool - dare to swim right on the lip of Victoria Falls and look down over the falls.
