Between the borders of Zambia and Zimbabwe lies a giant gash in the Earth’s surface that sends water plummeting and mist high into the air. The locals call it Mosi-oa-Tunya, “the smoke that thunders.” In English, it’s known as Victoria Falls. The local name seems more fitting as the falls drain 800,000 gallons of water every second from the mighty Zambezi River.

To truly see the scale of Victoria Falls, you need to see it from above; so we took a Victoria Falls helicopter tour.

I’ve explored the Windy City from plenty of angles: often on foot, sometimes by boat, but never before from the air.

My Small-Group Franz Josef Glacier Walk tour didn’t start on a glacier. Nor did it start on a helicopter. No, this tour started in the town center of Franz Josef, New Zealand, in the office of the tour guide, where excitement for what was coming escalated as I outfitted myself in glacier clothes.
