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.

Having seen the falls from ground level it is difficult to take in have big they really are but from the air you can really see them in their full glory. The flight although expensive is well worth it. We opted for the longer flight which started by going down into the gorge and then over the falls before finally... More

A helicopter flight low into the gorge and then over the Victoria Falls should be on everyone’s bucket list. It was an incredible 20 minutes journey and words cannot describe it. I have no hesitation in recommending the 20 minutes trip. The shorter trip is less expensive but one would lose out on winding low in the gorge section. The... More

We decided to splash out on a 12-15 minute trip over Victoria Falls. It wasn't cheap at $148 each but was undoubtedly an incredible trip. We were collected from our lodge and were taken to the take-off site at Baobab cafe. From here we (2 adults, 2 kids (13 and 11) were given a safety briefing then onto the chopper.... More

Six of us took the helicopter trip and it was such a great experience. I wanted to fly over Victoria Falls to take aerial pictures. We also went into the Gorge and it was surreal. I enjoyed the Gorge more. I would recommend United Air Charter as their helicopter offers better view.

I have given this 5 stars simply because the experience was nothing short of amazing. Seeing the falls from 1500ft above ground is a memorable experience and we loved it! The pilot Dale was very knowledgeable and very friendly. Definitely recommending this and doing it again

A very professional pilot who explained may things about the falls. To see the falls from a helicopter was amazing. We also flew over the river and saw elephants, hippos and crocodiles. Just wonderful.

I was fairly warned that no seat is guaranteed. However, I didn't expect the rear middle seat to be as bad as it was. The front seat next to the pilot is the only seat to capture good photos but the other window seats are not bad (the one on the left is better than then one on the right).... More

If you're going to visit one of the 7 wonders of the world, this is how to see it to fully appreciate the scale and beauty. The pilot was very knowledgeable with an amazing talent for spotting wildlife when it was there.

This is an expensive trip, but seeing the Falls and the gorges from the air is an incredible experience so it's worth it. The cost includes pick-up and drop-off from the hotel. The helicopter is modern, the pilot excellent, and with 3 of us on the trip we each got a window seat (mine was next to the pilot -... More
