If you want the best view of the falls, take a MICROLIGHT FLIGHT!!! The 15 min flight was plenty. Totally supercedes the helicopter flight I did. I found out about it after my itinerary was full and managed to squeeze it in this morning before...More

This may have been an expensive trip and I chose the 22 minute flight so I could fly down the gorge, but it was truly worth every cent. The views from above, especially when the falls are high in May are breathtaking. The pilot was...More

A memorable 20 minute ride in a 4-seater helicopter twice circling the Victoria falls and then down the gorge beyond, flying just above the heaving water. If you can afford it, do it: you probably won't be back there again soon and you may regret...More

Microlight over the Falls is a truly fantastic experience, the pilots are friendly, knowledgeable and really know how to make you embrace the whole beauty of the Falls :) You can pay by card which is also important. The only thing to keep in mind...More

Our first introduction to Batoka Sky was from an episode of "The Amazing Race" when my wife and I looked at each other and said, “we’re so doing that”, even though she referred to the little plane as a “lawnmower with wings”! Well, Batoka Sky...More

We rode the Microlight craft which is like a hang glider with a propeller. A pilot navigates it and you are the sole passenger at the back. In the first few minutes I felt tense because it is an open seat like a monobloc plastic...More

Hi.. $20 for the photos, $178 for the flight (if i remeber correctly). Well worth it and 15 minutes gives you a really good flight over falls and some of river
Hi, I've done this microlight several years ago and will be at Victoria Falls again this coming summer. I agree that it was a peak experience and I'm excited about being able to do it again. The only negative I recall was that it was quite expensive.. How much does it cost now? Thanks, I'm eager to find out. Couldn't find it directly online

I'm from Canada and going to stay on the Zimbabwe side of the Falls. I want to do the microlight flight and Angel's Armchair (both in Zambia) but wonder about the visa fees for Canadians. Do we still pay the highest amount and can't get a multi entry option? If so, do you have any suggestions to avoid the high fees?
