Customer Reviews

The experience was everything that we had hoped for. Both pilots were friendly and helpful, pointing out safety aspects, and various features during the flight. They were knowledgeable about the terrain and took the trouble to point out animals. A small critique would be the final bit of communication about where to meet. My previous e-mail said to meet at the Zimbabwe border. In my head, that's on the Zimbabwean side of no mans land. Nobody was there, so we decided to take a taxi, a) through no mans land, b) to Batoka Sky premises. We got the first taxi, and were about to get the second, after clearing customs, when we saw one of your vehicles, who said our driver was on his way. When we got back to the b&b that evening, and could log on via the wifi, did I notice an e-mail, sent at 10h30 that morning, saying that we should meet on the Zambian side. As none of our phones had international roaming, and we had left the hotel at 8h00 that morning, the e-mail was too little and too late. Regards James - James Britz

Initially, my flight was supposed to take place on the afternoon of New Year's day but it was cancelled due to bad weather. I was actually happy that they cancelled the flight and that the pilots were very concerned about the safety of the passengers. We took to flight the next morning around 6:30am and the flight was majestic. It was worth every moment and every dollar. I saw more of the falls than I have ever seen in my life--even having grown up in Livingstone and visited the place numerous times. - Wesley Ngwenya

Microlight flying is an incredible experience! Its amazing to see this landscape from an aerial view. The Victoria Falls is spectacular on its own but having the chance to see the herds of elephants, buffalo, hippos, etc was sweet as well. The flying this way is really fun as well and my pilot was really friendly and qualified. It’s a must do! - Kristina Choo

Fantastic ¡ We did this literally right after we got off the place from south africa and this was one of the best things we have ever done ( and I hate flying in airplanes ). The landing was actually softer than an airplane. Great time ¡¡¡ - Michael Maher

This was an absolutely amazing experience. Before the flight I was filled with both fear and excitement, wondering if I would enjoy the excursion. Once you take flight, the fear is gone and you are left in absolute awe. I have experienced nothing like this before and it was well worth it. Would definitely recommend to others and would do this again. - Keri Lock
