Overview

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.

We loved this charter service. We did a 30 minute ride. Beautiful way to see the Falls and the area. The Charter service office/hangar is quite nice too. Very well done.

This is expensive, but so is running a safe charter company. You are creating an experience and memory to last and this does exactly that. The 20 minute flight combines the Gorge and Falls, and is just right. It is the fastest 20 minutes. The...More
