Notes

30 MINUTE FLIGHT OF THE ANGELS AND GAME VIEWING : Enjoy a spectacular flight over the mighty Zambezi River and impressive Victoria Falls. After circling the Falls and islands, we head upstream along the Zambezi River to Kalai Island, where we do a low level swoop over the Mosi-oa-Tunya Zoological Park for unique game viewing.

Our Microlight flights offer unique, uninhibited and literally breathtaking views of the Falls and the spectacular gorge that the Zambezi has carved into the surrounding landscape over many thousands of years…

Customer Reviews

Great experience. Grant the Pilot was very friendly and I felt completely safe. Had great views of the falls and saw a fair bit in the game park. Only one down side we had booked for 3pm and to to be picked up at the border as we were staying on the Zimbabwe side. We had no idea what time we would be picked up and there was no tel no on the confirmation to call once we reached our accommodation in Zimbabwe and even our hotel couldn't find a no to ring. We ended up getting to the border 1.5 hrs before our booked flight time. Walked around then went into a touristy place and they called to see when we would be picked up. Sat there for half an hour got picked up then got to Batoka skys to be told we couldn't fly til 4pm. Flight great - communication from Livingstone adventures very poor. - Susan Taylor


SENSATIONAL!!! Literally one of the Top Ten (Five?!) best things I've EVER done in my life! :-O :-D 30 minutes cruising at an altitude of only 1,500 feet, feeling truly free, being able to feel the wind and see without obstruction the herds of elephants and buffalo, zebras, various antelopes, hippos in the mighty Zambezi - and, of course, Victoria Falls ('Mosi-oa-Tunya' - 'the smoke that thunders' - according to the local Kalolo-Lozi people), UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. I deliberately chose the first flight of the day to catch the big, red sun still rising, tentacles of mist weaving through the treetops. Truly amazing :-) - Vinay Kishore


I had a wonderful flight with pilot André. He was able to spot lots of animals and was willing to circle back to have a better look. A microflight looks scary but was great fun. I highly recommend it. - Hanzo


Loved the flight, was an amazing experience! So glad we opted for the 30mins, was great to see the falls for longer and see some animals from above. Slight issue with the pick up so I would recommend you confirm this the day before - if you are on Zimbabwe side make your own way to the Zambia boarder (the taxi is less than the boarder fee in the vehicle). There are card facilities to pay the aviation fee if you don't have correct cash, which was easy! Overall, excellent!! - Erin White


The flight was amazing but you should warn people that if they are in Victoria Falls they will have to pay $50 in border crossing fees plus use 2 pages in their passport booklets. We would not have booked this trip if we had know. The cost for me and my wife was just under $1000 USD for a 30 minute flight. That was ridiculously expensive. - LLOYD STUART
