Photographic Tour of the Falls

Capture the breathtaking Victoria Falls with the assistance of a seasoned photographer on this photographic tour of the falls

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.

Customer Feedback

Brilliant service and so helpful
by Sally (Blisworth, U.K.)
I stumbled across Victoria Fall Guide by accident, but I am so glad I did. Tony and Boo were so helpful, advising us on the best activities for us as I have mobility issues, and arranging our itinerary and booking everything. I had no worries about using them, or sending a very large payment to someone I didn’t know. Everything they booked for us was so well organised, pick ups on time, knowledgeable and friendly guides, clean transport. We did the walking tour of the falls, the sunset dinner cruise, full day at Chobe, the team, lion encounter and the helicopter and every single one was faultless. We were also due to do the lunar rainbow but unfortunately it was cancelled, however boo arranged the refund immediately. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. We are so grateful to them for making our special holiday even more so.
