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.

Fantastic flight over the Falls - great value - the UAC helicopters are very smooth and have huge windows - I am a pilot too - it's a top professional setup.

Helicopter flights are always going to be expensive, but sometimes you just have to bite the bullet. We opted to pay the extra for the extension down the river canyon, and I myself found this bit even more exciting than flying over the Victoria Falls. If you can afford it - then don't mss it.

First helicopter flight so a bit anxious. Staff maintained need for safety and caution without dampening anticipation and excitement. Pilot explained the flight plan beforehand and pointed out each segment so we could be ready to take pictures if we wanted. Angelic experience!!

It was an absolutely fantastic experience. The view of the falls and especially also the back region with the former falls is so impressive. We luckily booked a small private helicopter for the short tour and it was absolutely great. Also the organization went very well with pickup and return.

We were in Zambia during the dry season--mid October and were advised that the only way to see the falls completely was by helicopter. During the planning stages of our trip, I contacted United Air Charter by email. They replied promptly to all of my questions, and I booked online. Their staff was very friendly, they picked us up on... More

I was very skeptical that this helicopter ride would prove to be a well-worth endeavor as I have done numerous helicopter rides in my life (all throughout the Hawaiian Islands and along the coast of California and Alaska)... but my husband really wanted to do it, and so I reluctantly agreed. Well... IT WAS AWESOME. Holy crapoli. Do NOT just... More

First time I have been in an helicopter and wasn't disappointed. The views were amazing and I was lucky to sit in the front. Worth every penny

A short 12 min visit but totally worth it! Amazing views of the falls and the park! Transport from hotel included in price.

Although a 20 minute tour above the VicFalls does not come cheap, I recommend everybody to do this when in Livingstone. It provide a great view of the Fall and it allows you to enjoy the shear size of area. United Air Charter is a very professional company and I felt totally safe at all times. There is a good...
