Customer Reviews

A once-in-a-lifetime experience with Batoka Sky! My pilot was super informative and put any nerves I had at ease. Though the water was low over the Falls, it was still an incredible view to soar above them and circle nearby, even seeing elephants and hippos. - Alexandra Ernst

Trip of a lifetime. Once we arrived at Batoka Sky the process was very well organised and the staff kept everyone informed and well prepared. When our time came, the ground staff ensured we were safely strapped in and miked-up to the pilot, and before you know it you’re taking off and soaring through the mists of Victoria Falls. Incredible experience - an absolute must if you can. My 12-year old children also had a flight and it was the highlight of our while African adventure. Thank you. Comments/suggestions: Would be nice to have a cup of coffee included whilst waiting for your flight. Also, it would have been good to receive a confirmation email or WhatsApp msg once payment made with FULL explanation of booking and pick-up arrangements, as I was a little unsure whether anyone was going to turn up at the Zim border. Also our return taxi didn’t show up and caused a little problem at the time but it was resolved (but at our expense). Would have been better to have one vehicle for the transfer (from Zimbabwe border to Batoka Sky) as we weren’t sure what was going on and we’re left hanging around at the border which was a little unnerving. Not a complaint - just a comment for your information. Brilliant morning. - Dawn Richards

That was insane. Beautiful. Equipment fine . Pilot very professional and experimented. Nice flight. Lots of pictures . Thanks very much. I’m lovin’ it - Martinez Silvano

I was picked up at the border on time and the flight itself was wonderful. However, I was quite disappointed to learn that the go pro stopped working halfway through. I would have expected that the remaining battery be checked each day to make sure there was enough left for each flight. - Michelle Sadler

hello.... it was an unexpected and unique experience....this was my first flight on this kind of aircrafts, and it was much more exciting and beautiful than expected.....I always felt safe because of Heiko's highly professional attitude and performance on the flight.......it is my plan, now, to return on the season with the river plenty of water, and perhaps not too much mist, and repeat the flight to enjoy that falls in all its greatness.. Please give my best regards to Heiko and tell I really thanks him for that flight..!!.....see you in the not so far future...!!! many thanks and kind regards... Francisco Peraza - FRANCISCO PERAZA
