My Mum loves telling the story of her flight above the Falls when she first visited Rhodesia many decades ago. As a young woman, she embarked a small four-seater plane to get an aerial view of the magnificent Falls. The rickety plane hovered high above the bottomless gorge, as she stared in awe at the might of the water crashing furiously down. At that moment, the pilot said, “I have a hangover.”
My experience…was less dramatic. But I was still stoked to hop on to my first helicopter ride. Unbelievable views of the Victoria Falls from all angles – surrounded by nature at its finest. It’s difficult to keep your jaw from dropping as you take in the mesmerising scene unfolding below.
