Undisputably the best way to appreciate the majesty and splendour of the Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe is to view them from the air. David Livingstone famously wrote “scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight”. Little could he have known that 150 years later this has become a reality for mere mortals.
Putting the full breadth and height of the Victoria Falls into glorious perspective this amazing journey over the 1700m vast curtain of water includes 2 circuits either side offering unrivalled views and photographic opportunities. The journey then continues downstream for a thrilling flight over the Batoka Gorges offering an opportunity to witness the Zambezi turn from a genteel meandering river into turbulent raging rapids as the river is compressed by steep granite gorges. The grand finale is a game spotting flight over the Zambezi National Park home to, amongst others, elephant, buffalo, hippo, lion, crocodile and giraffe which are regularly seen during the fly over.
