For $260 each we took this 30 min. flight over the falls. They take six people plus the pilot - two lucky ones in front get a good view, but four people are squeezed tightly into the back where even the people on the sides...More

I highly recommend the Batoka Sky microlight flights over Victoria Falls. I can't imagine a better way to see the Falls or a more enjoyable experience. Eight of us did the flights, ranging in age from 10 to 78. All of us absolutely loved it....More

We booked for microlights but it was too windy that day. We were opted for ultralight instead without any further chargers. Great pilots and ground staffs and comfortable place for the kids too. plus free wifi !

Fantastic guided microlight tour of Vic Falls from the air! Enjoyed watching elephants bathing in the river and beautiful views of the falls!

It's an early morning start because it's less windy then. If you're coming from Vic Falls you will have to negotiate immigration to Zambia, via a taxi and then be picked up in a van to the Batoka Airfield. I got my flight pretty quickly...More

I did the microlight plane flight over the falls with Batoka sky (they have helicopters and microlight delta as well) and pilots are nice, good experience but overall quite short and quite expensive as well to be Africa. Nevertheless a very enjoyable experience

Absolutely fantastic! Best way to see Victoria Falls. We booked 2 micro light flights and we both loved it! We felt safe and the pilot was very professional. 15 minutes was definitely not enough!
