Victoria Falls - By Helicopter

The Victoria Falls with mid-volume flow on a September afternoon.

Our skillful and young pilot.

Mist spray and thundering sounds are still evident from above.

Take off with anticipation and expectation.

The bridge that straddles high above the Zambezi also marks the border between the two nations of Zambia and Zimbabwe.  The town of Livingstone is Zambian, whilst Vic falls is on the Zimbabwe side.

Rising above like a bird, with views of the Zambezi River and the beginnings of an ox bow lake, in the way the great river takes a bend.   The sun is at its height for the day.

Behind every great person is a wife or husband or partner or mentor.  Behind the success of each child is the unseen unrelenting effort of each parent.  The Victoria Falls can be seen as the outcome of a great flow of water, natural topography and good rain fall.

Just before taking off.

Grasslands on rock exemplify the landscape at the end of the dry season around the Victoria Falls.

The glory of it all
Such grace and power
Oh what a wonder
Mosi Oa Tunya
You are the Smoke that Thunders!

The River Zambezi is one of the largest water sources in the African continent, on which depends  much wildlife and human settlements.
