Under the Spray
One of the most amazing views of the Victoria Falls looking from the bottom up. Your trip starts with a walk down to the boiling pot, where you will jump into rafts and paddle to get closer to the falls. You then ‘canyon’ and climb through a series of rock pools under the cascades. This trip is seasonal and only available in low water season. Usually low water is from July/August to December/January. Please do not hesitate to contact us, to enquire about the current water levels.

The helicopter flight shows you one of the most stunning views of Victoria Falls and the formation of the Batoka Gorge.
The 12 – 15 minutes flight goes over the falls themselves. The 30 minutes flight goes over the falls and includes a short flight through the gorge and a short game flight over Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. We recommend the first or last flight of the day, because that’s usually when the animals come out.
No minimum age, but must be accompanied by an adult.
Lunar Rainbow – Zambian side
When the water is high and there is a full moon, you see a beautiful silver and colourful rainbow across the Victoria Falls. During this time the park stays open till 22:00 pm. It truly is an amazing sight.
Usually high water is December/January to June/July. Please do not hesitate to contact us, to enquire about the current water levels. Opening is dependent on the decision of National Heritage Coservation Commission the custodians of the park.
