2) Get your heart racing!

3) Moonlight viewing of the Falls – Lunar Rainbow at Full Moon

A trip to the Victoria Falls has become synonymous with safaris by day, but with a bit of careful planning, your trip can be just as magnificent by night. Plan your trip over the full moon (3 February and 18 February) and witness one of Africa’s most romantic sights, a midnight lunar rainbow over the Falls.

A lunar rainbow is created in the same way a rainbow is, water refracting through water droplets, but the effect is completely different at night. This breath-taking view is nature’s Yin to the rainbow’s Yang. Book a trip to this spectacular view for you and your loved one.

4) Sunset cruise

A 5-star luxury dinner, or sunset cruise on the Ra-Ikane sunset cruise is the perfect way to say “I love you” in style. The luxury cruise boat is designed, in exquisite detail to hint at an ambiance of a bygone era. Enjoy a sunset cruise in style surrounded by historic memorabilia and indulge in fine cuisine and refreshments characteristic of the comfort and grace unsurpassed on the Zambezi.
