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.

Probably our most bittersweet experience. It's pricey at US$ 360 pp compared to other flips we have done while touring for only 25 to 30 minutes in the air. We departed 45 minutes late, due to another couple arriving late and then having a dispute,...More

I agree with another reviewer, first go see the Falls up close, do a few of the short hikes and then do the helicopter ride. We did the 18-20 min flight I believe into the gorge and then over the Falls and it was thrilling....More

From timeous and courteous pickup to being returned to the hotel, this was an amazing experience. The flight offers a totally different perspective to walking the falls - which one should do first. The ground crew were professional in their briefing and the pilot informative....More

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

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.
