Owner description: 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.

“JUST AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed 23 January 2017 via mobile

We booked a 30 minute flight and was well worth it as the views you get are just breath taking from the Air. Our flight was booked for mid morning however we had thunderstorms and our flight was delayed a few hours but UAC kept us informed every hour at our Hotel so a big thank you to Ireen for that. Also a big thank you to Dale our Pilot for an amazing experience down the gorge...Jeez that was low flying and a great adrenalin buzz.UAC make the whole experience memorable from how easy it is to book your flight right through to the end of the flight. I would definitely recommend using UAC.

“HELICOPTER FLIGHTS ”
Reviewed 17 January 2017 via mobile

Helicopter flights and charters of all sorts are conducted by United Air Charters. The stunning views offered by the helicopter rides over the falls are second to none. The rates too!

“A must-do!”
Reviewed 15 January 2017

We visited Zambia in September, and given that it was during the dry season, we were warned that Victoria Falls wouldn't be in its full glory from the Zambian side. Having visited the falls from the Zimbabwean side (albeit briefly), I would still definitely recommend taking a helicopter ride over the falls - we took the 15 minute ride, and felt that this was enough.

The ride offers a completely different vista to seeing the falls up close and person in the national park, circling around the falls twice from both sides, and going along the river. We weren't lucky enough to spot any wildlife during our short flight, but it apparently happens quite often.

“A ride we'll never forget”
Reviewed 9 January 2017 via mobile

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 long enough. We saw the river upstream and circled the falls CW and CCW so everyone could see. It's a ride we'll never forget.
