It is no surprise that Victoria Falls is on many travellers’ bucket list. Being the largest waterfall in the world, this majestic attraction bewitches visitors with its pure magnificence. The beauty of this wonderful creation of nature is not, however, the only reason to travel to this renowned African destination.

Here are four unique reasons to visit Victoria Falls:

1. White Water Rafting

The Zambezi River is internationally acclaimed as the best one-day white water rafting location in the world. And this is no surprise. The long rapids, steep gradients and thundering torrents of water combine to make a rafting trip to the Zambezi an utterly exhilarating experience. There is nothing quite like speeding down the cascading river for awakening your sense of adventure.

2. Lunar Rainbow

The lunar rainbow, taking place at Victoria Falls once a month around the full moon, is a phenomenon like something out of a dream. Watch the colourful moonbow, reflected by raindrops, cast its arch over the Batoka Gorge and light up the African night sky with its luminous beams. This unique spectacle can only be witnessed at Victoria Falls for three days during full moon, at high water levels. Tongabezi Safari Lodge organises trips to Victoria Falls during the occurrence of the lunar rainbow.

3. Sunsets

A sunset in Africa is a sunset like no other. Seeing the round giant make way for night as it descends below the distant horizon, with the mighty Zambezi River as your backdrop, is something to be remembered. There are not many places on this planet where you can witness the sky being painted with such a range of colour as right here in Zambia.

4. Microlighting Over Victoria Falls

Hear the thundering water pouring down a cliff and be greeted with spectacular views of the majestic Victoria Falls right below you as you glide through the sky. This one of a kind, adrenalin-pumping activity may not be for the faint of the heart but if you’re brave enough it is an experience not to be missed.
