Sunrise over the Victoria Falls - Zimbabwe

Red sunrise over the Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls is famous for being one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World, attracting thousands of visitors a year. One of the great attractions is the almost permanent rainbows that the spray creates. Photographing these can be a challenge especially at certain times of the year. Sunrise and sunset is also a special time to photograph the falls. On a photographic tour of the falls, view the Victoria Falls with your own private photography guide who has spent many years learning the tricks and techniques that these unique conditions require. You will be tutored one-on-one throughout the whole tour and learn tips, techniques, be shown angles and viewpoints that suit your photograph as well as advise on camera settings and equipment. Helping you get the best possible photos you can.

Fantastic Itinerary
by Graham & Janet (United Kingdom)
Dear Boo
We would like to offer our thanks for sorting a fantastic itinerary for our all too short visit to Vic Falls. The cruise on the Zambesi at sunset was a delight and the helicopter flight breathtaking! The pick ups were punctual and staff members were all very smiley, friendly, helpful and good company. The whole experience of the actual Falls and the town itself was outstanding.
We will return! Your company will be our first port of call. Many thanks for a very efficient service.
Best wishes
