Victoria Falls Helicopter Flights

It originated from the phrase coined by David Livingstone when he first documented discovering the falls: “Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by Angels in Their Flight”. I think it is a great name, it describes this activity perfectly as it is surely one of the finest experiences you can have.

Looking along the length of the Falls you can see right into the chasm. Devils cataract is closest to us, and you can just see the new fault line starting to spilt, which will be the new Falls in about a million years!!

Here you can see the how the wide river abruptly plunges over the knife edge and how the river is reduced to its narrow gorges, where the white water rafting takes place.

Aerial view of Victoria falls

You can see how close the famous Victoria Falls Bridge (where they bungi jump) is to the Falls. The bridge was the brainchild of Cecil Rhodes who insisted that passengers on the train should feel the spray of the falls on their faces.

At ground level you can feel the enormous power of the Victoria Falls as tremendous volumes of water pound into the chasm below. But it is only when you take to the air that you can take in the whole panorama and enormity of this mighty spectacle.

As you look upstream you can see the lazy wide Zambezi River as it meanders along its course.

There are hundreds of islands and you can see all the wildlife going about its daily business.

Then as if a line is drawn the water plummets over a knife edge, at this point the river is almost one kilometre wide but is immediately reduced to a width of no more than 50m contained within a deep canyon.

But what’s even more spectacular is that as you look downstream you can see the zigzag of the gorges. These show a story in time as each one represents a different Victoria Falls from thousand of years ago, as the river has eroded the softer sandstone in the fault lines between the Basalt and cut its way upstream over the ages.

Up there in the air you can look at a millennia in time in just one gaze.

Sadly the Victoria Falls helicopter flight is pretty pricey for most of us but if you can get the money together it well worth it.
