The Victoria Falls is a breath-taking spectacle from whichever angle it is seen, but microlight flights add an entirely new dimension to the experience. The small crafts transport you above the waterfall to give you a unique experience while you soak up a natural wonder of the Falls and the spectacular gorge that the Zambezi has carved into the surrounding landscape over many thousands of years.
