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.

(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...

The experience was first class from the scenic waiting area to the safety briefing, and then the first-class flight and aerial tour of the gorges and Victoria Falls, You truly can not get a complete view of the falls and gorges without the flight. The view was spectacular,

What an awesome experience flying above the falls! The most amazing and overwhelming experience. Their shuttle service from our hotel even took us to the airport for free! Pricey but so much worth it.

Superb experience and worth doing it. We went for the longer flight 25 min instead of 15min. We went into the gorge and it was amazing. From a distance we saw hippos, crocs and an elephant in the national park. The

This was really worth the money. We were picked up from and returned to our hotel, had the necessary safety briefing and set off towards the gorge and then the falls.

So this was the cheapest helicopter ride by far. The staff were great, helpful and friendly. The flight itself was nice, stunning views. I'd recommend a helicopter ride over the falls for anyone who travels to see the Victoria Falls, because you can see the falls from both Zambia and Zimbabwe. They usually sell you a DVD of your flight... More
