Posted on March 16, 2020
An Unforgettable Bird's Eye View

The ever-lauded Victoria Falls, more commonly known as “Mosi-oa-Tunya” (The Smoke That Thunders) to its locals, does not form part of the 7 Natural Wonder of the World for nothing. This incredible force of nature is an incomparably beautiful sight and should be experienced from all angles – especially above!

Upon discovery of the falls in 1855, David Livingstone wrote the now famous quote “Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight”, thus creating what is now known as ‘The Flight of Angels’.

What are your options you may wonder? Well, there’s nothing quite like a microlight flight to experience the sheer magnitude of the world’s largest waterfall. Have a look at some of the most magnificent microlight flight views below if you need any more convincing!
