The Victoria Falls from the air
Flight Duration 12-15 Minutes
Take off from the helicopter site and climb to a height of 1500ft above the ground, whilst approaching the magnificent Victoria Falls.
The pilot will inform you of various landmarks of interest all along the route.
You will do one and a half orbits right and left to enable the passengers on both sides of the helicopter to video, photograph and view the mighty Victoria Falls. Once complete over the falls your pilot will fly towards Long Island where one can see Elephant and Hippo dependant on the time of year.
After this exciting experience and dependant on how much time was spent spotting the game on Long Island the pilot maneuvers over to the Mosi Oa Tunya game park where there are several herds of giraffe, buffalo, wildebeest and from time to time elephant.
It is a lot to see and you see it all, and believe me you do it all in just one short flight, and so from here the pilot returns to the helipad.
