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.

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...More

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.

Absolutely recommend this activity and if at all possible do the 30 minutes the gorge experience should not be missed.

Helicopter flights and charters of all sorts are conducted by United Air Charters. The stunning views offered by the helicopter rides over the falls are second to none. The rates too!

We visited Zambia in September, and given that it was during the dry season, we were warned that Victoria Falls wouldn't be in its full glory from the Zambian side. Having visited the falls from the Zimbabwean side (albeit briefly), I would still definitely recommend...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
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

Sorry for the delay in answering your question. We were there in May when the river was very high so lots of water and mist. The river drops slowly from then so probably less mist now. We could not see the bottom of the main... More
Hi. Can you please give me the price difference for the 12 minute flight to the 30 minute flight. We are going there in June and would like the option to upgrade. The 12 minute flight is listed as $275.00 per person. Thanks Andrea
