Come to Livingstone Zambia and view one of the seven natural wonders of the world - the magnificent VICTORIA FALLS. Also known as "Mosi Oa Tunya" - the smoke that thunders - the Victoria Falls is one of the most spectacular sights in the world and you will be able to view this amazing waterfall from the comfort of one of our helicopters. This experience will definitely qualify as the flight of your life as you embark on the "Flight of Angels".

The pilot will orbit to the right and left, enabling passengers on both sides of the helicopter to photograph and view the mighty Victoria Falls.

Once completed you will proceed upriver to Long Island and the Mosi Oa Tunya National Park where you may spot some of Africa's large game.

I highly recommend doing the 30 minute ride if possible. You get to go through the gorge below the waterfalls as well as around the waterfalls. It was a great experience. The falls are spectacular from the air plus we saw hippos, elephants, and crocodiles on the upper Zambezi above the falls.

Our first visit to South Africa and not seeing Victoria Falls was just not an option. We took the 20 minute flight with Dale, our pilot and guide. Supremely professional and knowledgeable, Dale took us down and through the gorge, twisting and turning from rapids 21 to 26, then up, up, up to circle twice round the falls. At this... More

What an experience! We went on the 30 minute flight through the gorge, over the falls and then up river. The staff are friendly and professional and the helicopter is modern, well equipped and comfortable. The really knows his stuff, gave us a good thrill without feeling uncomfortable. I can only recommend this!

Our hotel arranged this tour for us and we're so glad they did. These guys were professional, safety conscious, and fun. We opted for the slightly longer, and more expensive, tour that went down into the gorge and we're glad we did! It was a great way to get a look at the falls from the air. The pilot took... More

UAC uses the Colibri range of helicopters - safe & quiet. Take off was smooth & once over the Batoka Gorge the views are just incrdible. Ive been to the Falls many, many times and never before have I enjoyed this panoramic scenery. It puts it all into perspective of how the gorge and the river have cut the earths... More

Having seen the falls from ground level it is difficult to take in have big they really are but from the air you can really see them in their full glory. The flight although expensive is well worth it. We opted for the longer flight which started by going down into the gorge and then over the falls before finally... More

A helicopter flight low into the gorge and then over the Victoria Falls should be on everyone’s bucket list. It was an incredible 20 minutes journey and words cannot describe it. I have no hesitation in recommending the 20 minutes trip. The shorter trip is less expensive but one would lose out on winding low in the gorge section. The... More

We decided to splash out on a 12-15 minute trip over Victoria Falls. It wasn't cheap at $148 each but was undoubtedly an incredible trip. We were collected from our lodge and were taken to the take-off site at Baobab cafe. From here we (2 adults, 2 kids (13 and 11) were given a safety briefing then onto the chopper.... More

Six of us took the helicopter trip and it was such a great experience. I wanted to fly over Victoria Falls to take aerial pictures. We also went into the Gorge and it was surreal. I enjoyed the Gorge more. I would recommend United Air Charter as their helicopter offers better view.
