Falls from the Sky

An activity to tick off the bucket list any time of the year is to view the Falls from above, via helicopter or microlight. It offers a fascinating opportunity to see how the Falls are formed from both the Zambia and Zimbabwe side, without having to cross the border! A 15 minute flight circuits over The Falls for a classic birds-eye view whereas a 30 minute flight travels to the gorge below The Falls, skimming above the rapids of the Zambezi River and finishes flying over the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park.

Microlight flights are definitely for the more adventurous but also offer guests a more private experience soaring over the Falls, with just themselves and their trusted pilot. Guests can embark on both short and long flights as per helicopter flights but long flights skip swooping into the gorge and instead fly overhead to uncover utterly breathtaking views. It’s open to guests as young as 7 years old so is also an option for brave families!

Lower Zambezi is still relatively undeveloped, with it’s beauty lying in its wilderness state. The diversity of animals is not as wide as the other big parks, but the opportunities to get close to game, wandering in and out of the Zambezi channels are spectacular.
