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.

This is the way to see the Victoria Falls. From the sky you can see how big the falls really are. In April the river is full and the falls magnificent. The pilot was very experienced and turn the helicopter to give both sides the opportunity to take photos. His knowledge of the falls and the area was impressive. Going... More

At $175 for 15 minutes and $330 for 30, this is an expensive trip but it is worth the money. We took the longer option which combined a double circle round the Victoria Falls nearby with a stomach-churning descent into the canyon further up river. Having seen the Falls at lower level earlier the same day, we can say with... More

We booked this through the hotel and the cost includes the transfers. We had booked the 15minute flight and our friends the 30 minute flight. They combined the trip on the one flight as I think they don't fly with just 2 people. May is a good time to visit the falls as there was a huge volume of water... More

Seeing Victoria Falls on the ground is difficult with the mist and all during this time of the year, so why not see it from the air?! 160 bucks for a 15 minute flight seems a little steep, but for people like me who travelled half way around the world, this is a don't miss activity, which will enhance your...

I had the most amazing flight over the Victoria Falls. Not even words can describe how I feel right now. All I can say is keep up the best flights as my flight excited me, it will excite someone out there. United Air Charter is the best for all flights. Had the best experience.

My wife and I tried all sorts of ways to see the Victoria Falls; the photographic path (really good), the Boiling Pot (quite strenuous but interesting) the Rapids pathway (a sedate nice walk) and, of course...getting completely soaked amid the spray and mist of "The Smoke that Thunders" which is the fantastic Victoria Falls. However, in our view, without a... More

(Saturday 26th March) Ok so its not cheap - but this is a must do on your trip to Victoria falls, especially if you're there at the end of the wet season while the falls are in full flow as it gives you the chance to see what you cant see from the ground through the "mist that thunders" on...

we were a group of 6 scheduled for a ride 1st in the morining but when we arrived the cloud ceiling was low and rather than cancelled we were told to come back later and they would accommodate us ..... and they did. Smooth flight with a few bumps, just enough to make us know we were flying /saw the... More
