From the Journals...Victoria Falls, Zambia and Zimbabwe. June 30, 1986
Breakfast at 7:15, then to the border post by 8:10 A very easy border--I wish they all were like that. We walked across the bridge over the Zambezi River from the Zambia side to the Zimbabwe side, and after doing the border, headed into town.
We found a booking office where we could change money and sign up for both the Flight of Angels (airplane ride over the Falls) and the crocodile farm. We finished all that around 10 and had time to wander around until 11:15. At that time we were picked up and driven to the airport for our 11:30 flight.
The flight was fantastic. The 15 minutes just “flew” past as we watched in awe the spectacle below us. What an incredible sight! I shot just over a roll of film in that short time. In addition to several passes over the Falls (really the only way to view the 1.02 mile width of the Falls at one time), we flew upstream and saw hippos on an island, and herds of elephants and buffalo…
We walked down by the Falls and had a good look around while alternately taking pix and getting soaked…
The flight was really special, a highlight of my trip.
