Come to Livingstone Zambia and view one of the seven natural wonders of the world - the magnificent VICTORIA FALLS. Also known as "Mosi Oa Tunya" - the smoke that thunders - the Victoria Falls is one of the most spectacular sights in the world and you will be able to view this amazing waterfall from the comfort of one of our helicopters. This experience will definitely qualify as the flight of your life as you embark on the "Flight of Angels". The pilot will orbit to the right and left, enabling passengers on both sides of the helicopter to photograph and view the mighty Victoria Falls. Once completed you will proceed upriver to Long Island and the Mosi Oa Tunya National Park where you may spot some of Africa's large game.

You have to do this. 20 minute trip gave us exciting views in gorges and spectacular flights over falls. Early morning best time. Do NOT miss. We bought video of our trip 40 dollars on USB stick which was delivered to Avani hotel.

Treat yourself - yes it's approx £150 for a quarter of a n hour, but you'll never see anything like it again. Collected and returned to hotel, all quite seamlessly.

A great trip, fantastic vie of the falls, and although the duration of the trip does not sound long there was more than enough time to view the falls and the river, Jeremy

Is there are time- of- day that is best for the flight? For example is it best to wait for any 'morning mist' to burn off? or is there any build up of cloud or mist during the day, so early would be better? We will be there at the beginning of November. Thanks
