Wonderful aerial views of African falls…

fullsizeoutput_a3When in Zimbabwe late last year, my friend Jenny decided to book a helicopter ride over Victoria Falls.  I had walked around them on the Zimbabwe side (which I am told is better than seeing them from the Zambia side – but this was from our Zimbabwe guide so he probably is a little biased!!) so an aerial view sounded good…and boy was it worthwhile with sensational views firstly of the Zambezi River…fullsizeoutput_a9fullsizeoutput_9dfullsizeoutput_a8And then stunning views of the falls….P1010467P1010428fullsizeoutput_9cA bus pick up service arrives at the hotel to take you to the helicopter pad and the ride lasts for about fifteen minutes preceded by a safety briefing.  The flight afforded some fabulous views of the falls and the gorges and to see the water spray from above was something else.fullsizeoutput_a6fullsizeoutput_a1fullsizeoutput_a4What an experience; a touch expensive but definitely worthwhile…fullsizeoutput_9bfullsizeoutput_a7And also great to see the bridge I had seen from the ground the day before – the bridge that my brother bungee jumped off many years ago and the same one that separates Zimbabwe from Zambia…fullsizeoutput_99What an experience!!fullsizeoutput_a2
