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.

Book the 30 minute flight to really enjoy the experience to it's best.Make sure you can video your flight as you fly down through the canyon. Batoka will also video your flight and it's a wonderful memento to buy.

DONT do the helicopter flight! We both had done scenic helicopter flights before and felt a bit unsure about a microlight flight. You don't fly together in the same microlight but take off together. The flight is simply unbelievable. I got to steer and fly...More

You can book at the Falls- I did it the afternoon before through my hostel and was flying the next morning. Just make sure you book directly or use a reputable booking agent. Enjoy!
