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.

We once took a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon, and although expensive, we have never regretted it. So when we saw that helicopter rides were offered over Victoria Falls we didn't hesitate to do it. We chose the 15 minute flight which was plenty...More

I highly recommend doing the 30 minute ride if possible. You get to go through the gorge below the waterfalls as well as around the waterfalls. It was a great experience. The falls are spectacular from the air plus we saw hippos, elephants, and crocodiles...More
