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.

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

From the time we walked into reception till we left, we received friendly professional treatment. This was an activity we had considered before but the company we approached was rude and had a take it or leave it attitude. Going to United Air we received a friendly welcome and when we expressed our concerns they took the time to explain... More

I and my group had walked to view the falls which were in full flood, an amazing experience in itself but the helicopter flight was magical. Flying 360 degrees around the falls gave a long view back over the river and a close up of the vapour rising above. A truly memorable experience. Take your iPad or phone to video... More

The falls were in full flow thanks to the recent rains, but you can't get away from the fact that you can only see one third of the falls from the Zambian side. The helicopter flight is therefore a brilliant way to see their full majesty. We opted for the 15-minute flight, which sounds short, but for that you get... More

We were picked up from the Royal Livingstone Hotel by a vehicle sent by United Air Charter for a short 15 minute drive to the Helipad. Quick check in and saftey briefing, and we were escorted to the awaiting Eurocopter. We were lucky that we got the two front seats, from where the views were incredible. The nice thing about...

Wonderful helicopter flight over the falls and through the gorge. Worth taking the 30 minute flight. Got a full view of the falls and the trip in the gorge was spectacular.

We booked a 30 minute flight and was well worth it as the views you get are just breath taking from the Air. Our flight was booked for mid morning however we had thunderstorms and our flight was delayed a few hours but UAC kept us informed every hour at our Hotel so a big thank you to Ireen for... More
