We took the 20 minute flight. It was something out of an IMAX movie, diving down into the gorge below the Livingstone Bridge, canyoning via helicopter, then pulling up steeply to re-engage with up-river views and the magnificence of the Victoria Falls.

This is an impressively run outfit. It does exactly what is says on the tin. You can only experience the true grandeur of the falls from the air.
