A night time, moon rainbow or moonbow is created by the light of a full moon and water particles from the mist of a waterfall.

To look on the delicate Lunar Rainbow, which the light of the moon shining through the spray creates, is a beautiful sight to behold, making it a great natural wonder.


When the moon is full, the sky is relatively clear and the Victoria Falls are at their peak flow, from January to May, huge rainbows appear through the mist at night.

This unique event, is visible the day before, the day of and the day after the full moon.

The lunar rainbow is best seen at times of high water, from Janaury to July.The months of March, April, May, June and July are ideal as clear skies are normal and the waters have subsided

It is then that the light of the moon is reflected through the mists that rise up from the base of Victoria Falls.

During high water on the Zimbabwe side you will be soaked with spray as sheets of endless water thunder into the Zambezi below. The sound is deafening as over ten million litres of water a second plunge 100 metres over the edge. (Jan to March)

At the rising of the full moon the park stays open late, on
both sides of the falls and tour operators also offer special tours.

Mother Nature doesn't charge a cent for one of the most incredible sights, with her magic sunsets over the Zambezi River, and the moonlit rainbow over the Falls.
