Customer Reviews

Good day Due to the fact that you have ,,only" one Microlight plane we had to wait nearly one hour before we could start. Anyway, it was an absolutely great experience and I will recommend it to everyone. NB: Beside I would like to remember you to send me the pictures as well as the video about my flight per email as you promised it to me already on 05.02. I've already paid USD 45 for it (please see attached) but nothing received as yet. Many greetings from cold and rainy Germany Volker - Volker Wolf


Great experience! Definitely recommend for anyone visiting the falls - Macarena


The microlight got canceled so I took the helicopter ride. Pilot was amazing! Such a smooth take off and landing. Great experience all around! - Brittany Keller


A once-in-a-lifetime experience with Batoka Sky! My pilot was super informative and put any nerves I had at ease. Though the water was low over the Falls, it was still an incredible view to soar above them and circle nearby, even seeing elephants and hippos. - Alexandra Ernst


Trip of a lifetime. Once we arrived at Batoka Sky the process was very well organised and the staff kept everyone informed and well prepared. When our time came, the ground staff ensured we were safely strapped in and miked-up to the pilot, and before you know it you’re taking off and soaring through the mists of Victoria Falls. Incredible experience - an absolute must if you can. My 12-year old children also had a flight and it was the highlight of our while African adventure. Thank you. Comments/suggestions: Would be nice to have a cup of coffee included whilst waiting for your flight. Also, it would have been good to receive a confirmation email or WhatsApp msg once payment made with FULL explanation of booking and pick-up arrangements, as I was a little unsure whether anyone was going to turn up at the Zim border. Also our return taxi didn’t show up and caused a little problem at the time but it was resolved (but at our expense). Would have been better to have one vehicle for the transfer (from Zimbabwe border to Batoka Sky) as we weren’t sure what was going on and we’re left hanging around at the border which was a little unnerving. Not a complaint - just a comment for your information. Brilliant morning. - Dawn Richards

Customer Reviews

We had beautiful experience on the Zambezi River with River safari boat . Saw lots of Hippos Crocks monkeys different type of birds. Everything was so fine the food was great in the boat operator are the best. Thanks again sincerely. Yehuda and Chris - Yehuda Yacoby


This 2 hour flip back & forth across the Zambezi was the highlight of our visit to Vic Falls. From the moment, literally, that we stepped onto the boat we were looked after by our 'pilot' and his mate. The drinks were flowing and the snacks that we were offered on the small island were delicious. This experience is great value for money. We had a ball ! - Peter Mundell # 3509135


Was first activity in Zambia. Excellent and informative boat operators. Felt close to the water and therefore the animals. Great stop for snacks at sundown and all safety concerns abated. Excellent intro to Africa and highly recommended early on your trip! Graeme and Dini - Graeme Membrey


thrilling awesome adventure , i loved the moment we stop for some snacks by the island. this is a place to be also the guide wow he had lots of information - BELLA M


We thoroughly enjoyed our River Safari. At time it was very invigorating, especially when we went through the rapids. We managed to get close to the Hippos and other animals on the river banks. The nibbles and drinks break on a small island in the river was great and you felt part of the surrounds. Our guides were very knowledgeable and informative. I would say that it might be useful to have some waterproofs available. I really great trip. - Robert Humphries
