Zimbabwe’s big sky, clear weather and low light pollution make it the perfect place to get a glimpse of the galaxy. Victoria Falls Safari Club is capitalizing on these natural assets by offering complimentary stargazing for guests of the lodge. Every Wednesday and Saturday night, a specialist guide gives an educational talk on the Club Deck about the night sky, in which he identifies stars and galaxies, explains the origins of the universe, and gives perspective on the vastness of the universe. As an added bonus, the lodge offers a free 15-minute head/shoulder or foot massage, afternoon tea and pastries, and evening cocktails and snacks. The Club Deck also offers views of the Zambezi National Park and waterhole where elephants congregate.
