Marvel at a magical moonbow

12th August 2011 Print

Take advantage of an unbeatable package to Victoria Falls from The Zambezi Safari and Travel Company and time your visit to coincide with one of the most magical natural phenomenon afforded by the ‘Smoke That Thunders’ – a lunar rainbow – saving £320 into the bargain.

The Victoria Falls is one of the few places on earth where this spectacle can regularly be seen; each full moon lucky visitors can witness the moonbow created by the spray from this mighty waterfall.  Stay in four-star style for less than half price at Victoria Falls – including a guided tour of the Falls to view the full moon and lunar rainbow on 12th September – and then enjoy a thrilling safari in legendary Chobe National Park, staying at a new luxury lodge, Ngoma.

The Zimbabwean side of the Falls has by far the most viewing opportunities with a series of paths in the rainforest leading along the opposite bank, from the Devils Cataract in the west to the boiling pot in the east.  The Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is just four kilometres from the thundering spray, affording breath-taking views and outstanding levels of hospitality.

The new Ngoma Safari Lodge, situated over the border in Northern Botswana, sits within the Chobe Forest Reserve on the western edge of Chobe National Park and overlooking the Chobe River.  The lodge is a joint community and privately- funded project in association with the Chobe Enclave Conservation Trust (CECT).  Each of the eight suites enjoy a view of the river and offer the opportunity to see the famous Chobe elephants, migrating zebra or buffalo grazing on the floodplain below.  Activities include game walks, cruising on the Chobe River, day and night game drives to encounter over 75 species of mammals and birding - there are over 450 species to be spotted.

The package costs from £2,832 per person – saving £320 per person – and includes:

Return flights with British Airways/Comair from London Heathrow to Victoria Falls
Three nights at Victoria Falls Safari Lodge on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis
Dinner on one night at the iconic Boma Restaurant
