A great experience with microlight in the early morning. The air is cool and refreshing up in the air and you can see the entire Victoria Falls with beautiful rainbow. The birds eye view of Zimbezi River is also a magnificent sight with some sightings...More

Unbelievably breathtaking start of the day just after sunrise with low light creates rainbows over Victoria Falls. If you're staying on Zimbabwe side of Falls do have them give you details about coordinating transit for pickup at the border. Very safe smoothest flight I've ever...More

The organisation is absolutely bad. I booked a microlight flight at 7.15 am in the morning. But the time seems to be not interesting for the company. They picked me and some other guys up and then we had wait nearly 3 hours for the...More

We booked the longer 30 minute flight which included the trip through the gorge. This was well worth it and the best bit! Loved it and would definitely recommend Batoka. Professionally run organisation. Could pilot was ex-British Military.

Highly recommend a 30 minute helicopter ride. Is is simply exhilarating as you drop into the gorge below the falls and go white water rafting helicopter style. You will also get the best view of the falls and then game viewing over the game reserve.

Wonderful way to view the Falls from the air. 360 top views followed by a ride through the gorgeous gorge and the rapids is a worthwhile experience Please take the 25min flip. It’s definitely better It’s safe!
