Flight of Angels

Book your Victoria Falls Helicopter Flights directly through Shearwater, the owner of Zambezi Helicopter Company.

David Livingstone famously wrote on seeing the Victoria Falls for the first time in 1855 that “Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight”. Little did he know that 150 years later he could have exactly that opportunity. Indisputably the best way to appreciate the true splendour of the Victoria Falls is to view them from the air.

ZAMBEZI SPECTACULAR FLIGHT – approx. 25 minutes – US$ 265

th_heli6This experience encompasses the traditional “Flight of Angels” then continues downstream for a thrilling flight over the Batoka Gorges. The gorges below The Falls differ dramatically from the stretch above as the entire Zambezi River flows over the 1,7km wide waterfalls then is compressed into a turbulent 40 metres as the gorges slice their way through precipitous granite walls producing spectacular rapids and eddies that are hidden to most visitors. After a more tranquil flight over the upper reaches of the river, the Zambezi Spectacular Flight finishes over the Zambezi National Park – home to many wildlife species and, whilst spotting all the species is not guaranteed, elephant, buffalo, hippo, lion, crocodile and giraffe are regularly seen from the air during this stage of the flight.
