Sweeping views of the entirety of the Victoria Falls make this excursion an absolute must-do for visitors to Livingstone with no vertigo issues! Flights over the expansive cataracts, islands and cascades of the Falls provide a unique, bird’s eye perspective on one of the world’s natural wonders, and a clearer idea of the huge volume of water and sheer scale of the Falls.
Microlight flights are perhaps more immediate and certainly more nerve wracking, with only a relatively flimsy vehicle taking adventurers up to a mile above the rim of the Falls, where there is a genuine feeling of exposure to the elements. Sitting on not much more than a three wheel motorbike with wings high above the ground gives a real feel for the power of the Falls, superb views of the surrounding African bush and its wildlife, and a strong respect for the pilot sitting just in front of you, on whom the entire expedition utterly depends! Helicopter flights are more enclosed and sturdy, but the views are equally sensational, and passengers can choose between 15 minute or half hour flights. Whatever your choice, you will get a privileged view of the Victoria Falls that even David Livingstone never had access to.
