Today, enjoy an early morning tea or coffee on your private veranda, which provides the backdrop for sunrise photography over the gorge, followed by a sumptuous breakfast in the main lodge.
After breakfast, head into Victoria Falls town for a bird’s eye view of the Victoria Falls from a helicopter!
Following a gentle take off from the helipad, you will fly out over the Victoria Falls where we will provide you with the most incredible viewing and photographic opportunity of this World Heritage site. Continuing your flight downstream over the Batoka Gorge, experience the natural beauty of this awe-inspiring dramatic feature, following the mighty Zambezi as it carves its way between steep cliffs.
As we head back from the Batoka Gorges, taking a last glimpse of the falls, we fly over Long island on the upper Zambezi towards the National Park, home to a wide variety of wildlife species. This is an amazing opportunity to view game from the air in this vast National Park, as well as along the banks of the upper Zambezi River. There are great chances of spotting Elephants, Hippo, Crocodile, Buffalo, Giraffes, Kudu and many more as we head back to the helipad.
After your flight, enjoy a two hour walking tour of Victoria Falls aka “The smoke that thunders.” It remains one of the most spectacular natural wonders in the world and amazing photography opportunities.
Return to Gorges Lodge for a late lunch followed by free time to photograph the stunning Batoka Gorge at sunset before enjoying a traditional Zimbabwean ‘braai’ out under the stars.
