Customer Reviews

Wow.. incredible experience, thank you. Only unacceptable issue was when we arrived having paid, on time at 3pm we were told that we wouldn't be flying until 6pm as the conditions were too windy (only 5 knots! Nonsense.) and they don't fly microlites until the evening (but we had a booking??). We were then asked to choose a different option..(why?) but when challenged the story changed that it was too hot and would be uncomfortable for us. More nonsense. I then spoke direct with the pilot who said we could fly in 30 minutes and said something about a passing storm cell. No idea whether this was true..didn't feel like it. We then flew in the microlite. It was really amazing. No video though as this was broken. - Mark Johnson

Fantastic adventure above Victoria Falls. The views are incredible, and the ride is so smooth--it's the only chance you'll get to feel like you're actually flying in the open skies. Planes feel super safe and the staff and pilots are incredibly professional. - Elizabeth Kwok

We were not able to fly on this trip to Africa. It did not work into our time schedule, so we had to cancel. Hopefully sometime in the future - Patrick Collins

Excellent experience. Very professional operation. A great memory. - Jim McMurray

This was hands down one of the greatest experiences I have ever had. The views of the falls were absolutely breathtaking. I'm so glad I got the experience Vic Falls from above! Would recommend this experience to everyone, no one should miss out on this opportunity! Once in a lifetime! Thank you so much for making my trip so memorable! - Jessie Anderson
