Microlight Flights over Victoria Falls
Picture a giant kite, with a 10-foot tricycle welded to the struts. Strap on a motorcycle engine, attach a propeller, grab a helmet, and you're ready to go. Not adventurous enough for you? Then how about taking that open-air ramshackle contraption up 3,500 feet over the roaring mist of Victoria Falls? Still not wild enough? Then how about shutting off the engine mid-flight, and enjoying the total silence of gliding high above the African plains? Just hope the starter is in good shape, so you can make it back to the airfield... An amazing experience; so much better than the cramped helicopter flights!
