Overview
More
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.

I had an early morning Microlight flight over the falls on a clear cool morning. It was stunning. You will not need a wake up cup of coffee before the flight! Lots of fun and a very memorable experience. Highly recommended.

Seeing victoria falls is a must. But because the area is so narrow, the amount of water blasting back up soaks you to the bone. You can’t really see the falls at all on foot. And do not take your phone or camera! However, if...More

Took a 15min microlight with pilot Andrew, absolutely amazing view, definitively worth it. The views and the feeling from the open air microlight are unique and give you a sense of how magnificent the falls are. Could be a bit scary for some people but...More

If you go to the Victoria falls you MUST do a helicopter flight over the falls. Well organised trips. Absolutely Breathtaking!!

Did the microlight flight. Wow!!! Amazing. Worth the money. But if you’re scared of flying or heights it’s not for you trust me. Spend the extra money on the helicopter or don’t go up. I don’t regret my decision. Beautiful

I did the 15 minute helicopter flight with 3 others. The front seat gave me an incredible view and the photos matched. At a height the falls give you a much different perspective. For $150 US money well spent and no regrets at all. Felt...More
