We loved Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and came away thinking there are two things you must do there: 1) attend the “Magic of Africa” show at night (then $20 per person for about 1½ hours) — outstanding — and 2) take a helicopter ride over the falls.

We recommend the helicopter from the Zambia side. They picked us up at our hotel and took us to the helicopter. At the time of our trip in June ’01 it was $75 for 15 minutes aloft, which included the border-crossing fee (a side benefit — you get a Zambia stamp in your passport).

You really need to appreciate the falls from the air, because the wide falls cascade into a narrow gorge and the mist makes it hard to see them from the ground.
