Somewhere over the moonbow

Posted by ZambeziGuest on August 11, 2011 at 12:01 pm

That’s right, you read correctly.  A moonbow.  Or lunar rainbow.  And guess where in the world is one of the best places to see such an amazing natural phenomenon?  Victorial Falls!

Infact, the Victoria Falls is one of the few places on earth where this spectacle can regularly be seen.  Every full moon lucky visitors can witness the lunar rainbow created by the spray from this mighty waterfall.

And we’ve currently got an UNBEATABLE offer of three nights at one of the top Victoria Falls hotels for less than half the normal price (see our Victoria Falls Zambezi Special).  Extend this to our 6 night moonbow package and a guided nightime tour of the Falls is included, along with 3 nights at a new exclusive safari lodge in Chobe.

Here’s some photography tips from Chris Worden:

  • A tripod is essential
  • ‘Focus to infinity’, set your camera on manual mode on f5.6 and try a series of shutter speeds from 4 seconds to 30 seconds
  • Shaking the camera by pressing the shutter is not a problem as the shutter delay is so long due to the low light
  • Experiment with various shutter speeds and also f stops. The higher the f stop, the longer shutter speed you will need
  • I found 20 seconds/f8 was excellent and this showed the slow fuzzy flow of the water
