Lunar Rainbow Tour And Park Pass

We're plannning to travel to Victoriafalls from Jun.3rd to 6th and to join the lunar rainbow tour on 3rd.
If we fail to see it on 3rd, we want to join on 4th and 5th.
Do we have to book the tours for 3 nights in advance?
And is the park pass needed for the lunar rainbow tour for single entry (different from the day tour)?

Victoria Falls Lunar Rainbow tour options
by: Tony

There are two options for the lunar rainbow tour.

1) You can either book through one of the tour operators. They will pick you up from your hotel take you to the rainforest escourt you around sort out your entrance etc and then at then take you back to your hotel at the end of the tour.

2) Or you can make your own way down to the rainforest entrance pay to get in and then join the tour that is guided by the National parks guide. All lunar tours are guided by National Parks guide.

Either way you have to pay a separate entrance fee for the lunar tour as opposed to your day time pass. You have to exit the Falls at 6pm and the re enter and pay again at about 7pm.

Pre booked with a tour operator, the lunar tour cost US$70 including national park fee. This would need to be booked in advance.

Just arriving at the rainforest and paying entrance fee will cost $40. This does not require pre booking just pitch up. You do need to have a vehicle to do this though as I would not recommend walking around Victoria Falls at night.

Falls tour duration
by: Tony

A guided tour takes approximately 2.5hrs on the Zimbabwean side. If you do it on your own, allow at least this long if not longer.

The Falls change throughout the day as the sun moves so do the rainbows and the shadows,it is always different, give it as much time as you possible can.

Lunar rainbow dates
by: Tony

Hi Nicola

The Victoria Falls national park (where the Falls are located) is open one day either side of the full moon. In September 2011 the full moon is actually on Monday 12th, so the falls are open for viewing on the 11th, 12th and 13th.

You can see more information here Lunar Rainbow

by Elsie Schafer
(Nelspruit, Mpumalanga, SA)

We have booked a trip - flying from JHB, staying at Vic Falls Hotel, paid for Chobe day trip, Tour of the falls + Sundowner cruise. We use Rands in SA - apparently we still have to pay the park fees for the Chobe + Falls trip. Could you tel me how much would it be more or less for 2 people. I was told that those fees are to be paid in US Dollars. Looking forward to our trip. Thanks

Contact booking agent
by: Tony

I think you will have to go back to the booking agent who booked your trip for you. It all depends on how they packaged it together for you, fees could well be included and should be. If they know what they are doing they can help you with this info.

TOUR OF THE FALLS

by Yona
(Johannesburg SA)

We are going to Vic Falls in December. Is it necessary to go on a guided tour of the falls or can one find one's way easily on one's own.

Guided Tour
by: Tony

It is not necessary to go on a guided tour, you will be able to easily find your way around. There is a simple set of pathways that take you along the edge of the Falls.
However many people prefer a tour because of the greater understanding a guide can give you on the area.
The guided tour also includes collection and drop off from your hotel so that saves you having to make your own way down there.

Entance Fees to Victoria falls
by: Tony

Entrance Fees are US$30 for internationals and US$20 for regional countries like South Africa.
Yes it is a single entry ticket if you exit the gate you will have to pay again.

It is for full access to the Falls. Although there is no where that you can go beneath the Falls. There is one place where you can climb down some steps and look at the Falls from a lower angle.

No you cannot buy a family pass but children under 12 pay half price.

No you cannot buy a multiple pass, but you can stay in the park for as long as you like in any one day, as long as you don't exit the gate

Yes you can pay in SA Rands but the exchange rate is not favorable. You will pay R160 instead of US$20.

Try to take US$ with you instead of Rand as paying for anything except the supermarket works out very expensive, many places will use an exchange rate of 10 to 1

i will be travelling from south africa via messina, please can you advise what i can encounter.

at the border what can i expect, costs?, checks?
what can i bring in what must i not since i am traveeling with my family and going to a self catering lodge?

also what will it cost me for a booze cruise for 3 adults 1 teen(17yrs) 1 child(11yrs), can i book with you? can i pre-book from south africa?

Answers to questions
by: Tony

Hi Zarina

Regarding the border - my advice would be to avoid Bietbridge at all costs at that time of year, it is an incredibly busy border and you will be delayed for a long time.
I would go via Botswana through martins drift via Francistown and then Kasane. It will cost you about P160 to enter Botswana but this is well worth it as these border posts are much more pleasant.
When travelling back ie going south it is not to bad.
I will send you a copy of our downloadable guide if you send me you email address and this will answer many of your questions regarding border costs, allowances etc.

Regarding the activities, go onto our activities page on our website, http://www.victoriafalls-guide.net/victoria-falls-activities.html
I hope that this will give you the information that you are looking for. You will also find a price list of all the activities you can do. You can easily pre book and pay for everything before you go, you just need to send us a booking enquiry form and we will arrange everything for you, and it wont cost you any more than if you do it when you get there and you can pay directly into and SA bank account. Vic Falls is incredibly busy over xmas and new year and I would definitely recommend pre booking activities as they will almost certainly be fully booked if you leave it till the last moment.

Vic Falls accommodation is 100% fully booked over this period so if you send us more details regarding lokuthula I am sure that we will have someone who would like to use it.

On the whole grocery prices are slightly more expensive than SA about 10 to 20% but it depends on the product. A loaf of bread will cost you between R6 and R7 and a cokes and beers about the same, so no point in taking those, but wine will cost you a lot more than in SA. Quality of meat is not brilliant and the choice not great. Take what you can, but you will not go hungry as you can buy everything there.
I hope that helps

Victoria falls fees
by: Bonolo

Me and my partner and some friends are planning to come down to Victoria falls in December 2014. would you advise on which resort will be suitable for us and what the costs would be. and also advice on how to secure bookings as i know that time of the year most places are fully booked.

Answer:

Hi Bonolo

If there is a group of you by far the best value is to try to get into the self-catering units at Lokuthula or Rest camp. These do get booked up in December but you are planning quite far ahead so you might be lucky. Other than that there is a range of B&B's, small lodges and Hotels and it really depends on your budget your group size and your preferences. If you can contact us through our booking enquiry form with a few more details we will be able to help you get exactly the right place. Once we have found you the right place then you will need to pay a deposit to secure the booking. This can be done via credit card or bank transfer which ever is easiset for you

Look foward to hearing from you

Regards
Tony

Multiple activities at Falls
by: Anonymous

Where is the entry to the park? If I do three different things morning, afternoon and evening, could I have to pay $30 three times in a day?

Answer:
By Tony

The $30 entrance fee is to get into the see the Victoria Falls only. This is the only activity you can do on entering this gate. The other activities you are likely do be doing won't be through this gate.
You would need to tell me what other activities you are doing then I can tel you if there are any other park fees that you will need to pay. For instance a sunset cruise you have to pay a $10 park fee, a helicopter flight you pay a $12 park fee. Some other activities there are no park fees.

Entrance fees
by: Tony

As has been posted numerous times on this thread.

SADAC/Regional $20
International $30

If you are from Botswana you will pay the SADAC rate of $20

If you go on a guided tour of the falls then you need to add the cost of the tour which is about $22. This is maybe why you have heard people saying it is $50. But the tour is not compulsory and has to be prebooked with one of the tour operators or ourselves. Booking enquiry form

Hi Ovas

A guided tour of the Falls currently costs $46 per person this includes the entrance fee of $30. It also includes collection and drop off from which ever hotel you are staying in at the Falls.

We do recommended a guided tour as the guides are very knowledgeable and it gives you you a full insight into these magnificent Falls.

A guided tour last about 2.5 hrs, so there is plenty of time to do some other activities, have a look at our price list for whats available.

Entry fees into the Falls
by: Tony

Entry fees are;

US$ 20 for foreign nationals
US$ 15 for SADAC country states
US$ 5 for local Zimbabweans

Passports are required to prove nationality. This is a one time entrance, you have to pay again if you exit and enter later in the day.

A guided tour costs US$ 36 this includes the entrance fee and pickup and drop off from your local hotel. Which is quite nice when it gets really hot.
