Reviews A Bird Eye View of Victoria Falls in Livingstone
A Bird Eye View of Victoria Falls in Livingstone
A popular African destination these days is the Victoria Falls in Livingstone. The thrill of seeing this natural wonder of the world from a microlight is one of the many adventure activities available in Livingstone.
A short flight over the Falls will give you both a spectacular view and some great photographs to take home.
As I settled in behind the pilot I was very apprehensive (to put it mildly!), but as we hurtled down the runway and became airborne I simply felt like an eagle soaring in the sky. Absolutely exhilarating!
From this perspective the sheer size and beauty of the Falls unfolds below. You are kitted with earphones and a mike, so are able to chat to the pilot as you fly. This adds to the enjoyment as he can point things out that you may have missed.
On the return leg you fly fairly low over the river and spot pods of hippo in the water.
Landing is a very fast affair, which surprised me, but I survived! Can't wait to go "up up and away....." again!
Microlighting comes highly recommended and it's much more exciting - and quieter - than the helicopter flip. The pilots are very experienced and clearly love what they do.
It's my view that microlighting is a "must do" when you visit the Victoria Falls in Livingstone.
