Lonely Planet: The lunar rainbow* over the Victoria Falls is one the "marvellous meteorological sites 2013"

Lonely Planet, the largest travel guide book publisher in the world, is every year publishing a book called "Best in Travel". "Best in Travel 2013" is a compilation of the best places to go and things to do all around the world in the year ahead. It covers the top 10 countries, regions and cities to visit, best travel experiences for 2013 as well as over 35 events mapped out month by month in the (2013) travel planner.

One of the secions in the 2013 edition of "Best in Travel", called "Marvellous meteorological sites", covers sites worldwide that are known for their extreme weather phenomena. Sites and phenomena such as the Morning Glory in the Gulf of Carpentaria in Australia, the Tornado Alley in the Midwest of the USA and the storms on Vancouver Island in Canada got selected by Lonely Planet to be the "marvellous meteorological sites 2013" as well as, thank you Lonely Planet, the moonbows lunar rainbows* over the mighty Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe/Zambia). Moobows Lunar rainbows* are best seen between April to July during full moon. The best spot to get a glimpse of them is actually from the Zambian side of the Falls (Livingstone). Another very good reason to visit the Victoria Falls!
