Feel yourself hanging in the air, high above the greatest water fall in Africa, the wind on your face, and far below you animals in their natural habitat. That’s what you’ll get if you try a flight in a microlight over Victoria Falls. The flights leave from Zambia, so if you are there chances are you were planning to see the Falls anyway. This is a way of seeing them that in truly unique. You will have to be over 6 years old and under 100kg. You will get views of the falls, Zambezi River, Batoka Gorge or Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park and of course the animals. You are taken up by an instructor in tandem, so sit back, feel as light as a bird and soar.
No cameras are allowed, obviously because you could drop them, but there is a camera mounted on the wing, so you will get a shot of yourself as well. The flights take place in the morning or evening, so you will always get incredible lighting.
How to get there:
You book on-line and the companies pick you up from your hotel.
Try staying at the Chandakwa River Lodge just 4kms from the Falls.
