As I mentioned, there is no place on the ground from which you can fully take in the majesty of Victoria Falls. So...take to the air! A small airport on the Zambia side of the border operates microlight and helicopter flights over the falls. The microlights were all booked the day we had free for such activities, so we opted for the helicopter, which accommodates four people plus the pilot. You can sign up for either a 15 or 30 minute flight--we opted for the 15 minute excursion which, of course, goes far more quickly than you'd imagine.
