Take off from the helipad and proceed low level over gently undulating landscape with its Baobab and Mopani trees and Acacia shrub, to the mighty Zambezi Gorge.

At rapid number 21 the pilot will gently lower the helicopter into the belly of the Batoka Gorge with its 300ft towering shoulders of rock and proceed down river past rapids 22 to 25.

At rapid 26, which is a very long and straight rapid, the pilot increases speed to lift out of the gorge, a towering 300 ft above you.

Once clear the pilot then turns around and heads back to the Falls passing several cultural villages underneath.

At this stage the waterfall spray will be visible and at approximately 2 miles the pilot climes up to 1500ft above the ground to reveal the Majestic, the Mighty, Victoria Falls.

The final leg of this spectacular flight is Game viewing.

The pilot will now proceed  above the Falls over Long Island, and on either side of the Island looking for hippo, elephant and some of the large crocodiles that bask on the banks of the mighty Zambezi.
