Looking for hot new travel destinations ? Victoria Falls may be the location you are thinking about. The “Flight of the Angels” is one of Victoria Falls most loved attractions. For 15 minutes you glide above the 1700m curtain of water that is the Mosi-ao-Tunya, taking in the very different views from both the Zimbabwe and Zambian sides on this not to be missed Victoria Falls helicopter ride.
Soaring over the falls in a helicopter or microlight aircraft is surely the best way to really appreciate the magnitude of this incredible natural wonder of the world. It’s also a great way to snap some amazing photographs, which is why it appeals to me. And I think it’s still likely to get your heart rate up, if only from excitement as you see the real force of this vast body of water pouring itself over the edge of the gorge. Prices vary on length of time, with the cheapest option being the 12-13 minute Flight of the Angels trip in a helicopter and the most expensive being the 30 minute Microlight flight. See more info at Book Victoria Falls Activities.
Though you can visit both sides of the falls, you’ll need to go through border formalities crossing from one country to another and pay visa fees (which may or may not be included on your tour). Which side you stay on will affect some aspects of your visit, even if you end up spending some time on both.
