Romance And Rejuvenation At Victoria Falls

Considering the number of activities available for the brave and fearless, it is no surprise that adrenalin junkies love Victoria Falls, more commonly known as “the adventure capital of Africa.” You can participate in a wide variety of heart-pumping activities, ranging from a daring bungee jump off the Victoria Falls Bridge, to white water rafting on the Zambezi River, to helicopter trips over the falls.

However, adventure is not all this marvelous place has to offer. The Victoria Falls and Zambezi areas are also divine locations for a peaceful, rejuvenating vacation that allows couples to feel the romance while enjoying the quieter pleasures of the region.

Here are three romantic activities for couples to do in and around Victoria Falls.

1. Canoeing on the Zambezi

View the Zambian wildlife wandering on the riverbanks whilst you drift down the beautiful, grand Zambezi River on your canoe. Canoeing while the birds chirp, animals graze alongside your boat, and the hippos grunt in the distance is both relaxing and good exercise for you and your partner.

2. Floating candlelit dinner

Should you be looking for something sincerely romantic, a floating candlelit dinner organized by Tongabezi Safari Lodge will make your starry-eyed travel dreams come true. The floating dinner arrangement is not simply a dinner for two by candlelight. It is set on a floating pontoon in the middle of the river under the African night sky. Imagine indulging in an exquisite meal with your loved one with only a few paraffin lamps and the magical Milky Way lighting up the sky –pure bliss!

3. Lunar Rainbow

Should you visit the Victoria Falls during the full moon, you may be blessed enough to witness the colourful spectacle called a Lunar Rainbow. It can be witnessed every month over the mighty Victoria Falls in Zambia. Just throw a unicorn into the picture, flying over the moon- rainbow and you’ll be able to die content in knowing you’ve seen it all. Even if the unicorn doesn’t appear, the sight of the bows of colour floating over the falls is more than mesmerizing enough.


While you’re visiting Victoria Falls, consider a stay at Tongabezi Lodge, a romantic luxury hideaway on the banks of the Zambezi. To book, visit, or email
