Ultralight flight over Falls

Ultralight flight over Falls

I am interested in trying to photograph the Falls from the air, and I understand that one can not take a camera on a Microlight flight, and that a video can be bought of the flight. I have also read that Ultralight flights were suspended in 2007

a) Does anyone know if these Ultralight flights are now available. Hopefully from VFA.

b) Are there any fixed wing flights available where one can take photographs without glass reflections.

c) Are there any helicopter flights available where the windows can be opened to take photographs?

My thanks in advance for any info which might be useful.

Micro light flights are operational from the Zambian Side only, but they are very much in operation.

There are no fixed wing flights available.

Shearwater helicopters have recently been fitted with bubble windows. This really enhances the view you get of the Falls and gives you a much wider perspective. The front seat has a very small slide window that opens.

Microlight flights do not allow you to carry your own camera equipment.
