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.

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...More

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.
