Batoka Sky has been active in the aviation industry since 1993 and is the only aviation operator in Zambia that is licensed to operate helicopter, fixed wing and micro lights. Due to the close proximity of Maramba Aerodrome to the Victoria Falls, our aircraft are within half-a-minute reach of the Zambezi river. The surrounding National Parks ensure a host of exciting game sightings, and shortly after take off you can be enjoying breathtaking views as you circle over the magnificent Victoria Falls. Our flights can be combined with many of the other adventure activities in Livingstone, offering good value for money.

If you only have time for one activity at Victoria's falls, this is the one!

Incredible experience that allows you to see the falls and the canyon that follows. Gives a totally different perspective of the falls and the Zambeze. You'll also be able to see... read more

Incredible experience that allows you to see the falls and the canyon that follows. Gives a totally different perspective of the falls and the Zambeze. You'll also be able to see from the above hippos or crocodiles. I felt totally safe at every moment. A 15mn tour gives time for circling twice above the falls.

My mother asked if I was looking forward to our microlight flight. I said I didn't want to talk about it. She said she was looking forward to it. I felt a little sick. But determined to go ahead. Just because I hadn't enjoyed my first gliding experience a few months previously was no reason to pass on this opportunity.... More

This is an absolute must.we went early in the morning and saw the most magnificent rainbows over the Victoria falls. The beauty of Microlighting is that you feel free and you are able to get closer to the falls. Best to wear long pants and a top as it can get chilly!

The experience is absolutely unforgettable. The view from the top is amazing. The staff is not that friendly. I said I will pay for the video anyway but I wanted to add another go pro mounted in the micro light. They said no no no, without even understanding I would pay anyway. Also they charged me 6$ more when in... More

My sister, her husband and I all took microlite flights with Batoka over and around the Victoria falls this month. Onepassenger was particularly nervous and her pilot was very reassuring and helped her relax. All were extremely knowledgable, pointing out particular areas and wildlife.

An excellent way to see the area surrounding the Falls and the Falls itself. My guide was excellent and very friendly and informative. Pricing is somewhat expensive for the duration (US$185 for 15 minutes) but this is a once in a life time experience and is well worth the cost.

I had a nice flight with a German pilot. I paid 20 dollars extra to have gopro footage unfortunately nothing was on the USB stick I got. So if you with this operator double check the USB stick you get. I was only able to find out when I was already home. This was a serious bummer as the sight... More

In one episode of the Amazing Race, the racer did the microlight flight! When I saw it, this is on my bucket list that I need to do! When I landed in Livingstone, I signed up to the flight asap! My initial flight was cancelled unfortunately due to the weather so I was out on the first flight out two... More
