Victoria Falls is one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World, it has a width of 1,708 meters and a height of 108m, resulting in the world's largest sheet of falling water. Victoria Falls are roughly twice the height of North America's Niagara Falls and well over twice its width.
Great care has been taken to terraform and sculpt the landscape in and around the Victoria Falls / Zambezi River gorge. You will be able to fly your helicopter low and take in the river rapids along the way, just like real-life tours. If you’re lucky, will you be able to see some wildlife on the way to the waterfalls and rapids! Watch for traffic as you fly over the Falls, microlight pleasure flights often pass by.
Keep an eye out for additional helipads along the river banks. They exist to drop off / pick up white water rafting tourists along stretches of the Zambezi River.
Each of the heliports have been recreated in great detail, two of which (Masuwe, & Chikopokopo) are probably the closest heliports to each other in the world! Just a single dirt track separates them.
One of the dirt strips - Baobab Camp Airstrip, which is linked to the Baobab Heliport is a newly built strip to accomodate United Air Charter Cessna Caravan's. This strip has been brought to life with custom ground textures, and features an open-sided hangar.
Check the boards at some of the Airstrips & Heliports for route maps of tours you can recreate.
