Customer Reviews

Great experience - Joel Bekaert

I had a great time with the Microlight Short flight (AM) experience. I was already expecting the flight itself to be pretty fantastic, but starting from the pick up from my lodging, I was already so impressed. The van was clean and the driver was very amiable. Once at the center, it was very well put together, and welcoming. Getting checked in and on a flight was brisk. The pilot was very friendly and very helpful! Due to my big hair, my helmet and headphones didn't align well enough on the flight, so I wasn't really able to hear the pilot talk about the Falls until towards the end. Regardless, this is something I'd definitely do again, or recommend to someone to do while at Victoria Falls in Livingstone! - Meave O.

My partner and I enjoyed the microlight flight. We felt that the 15 minute ride was enough to get a feel for the falls. I highly recommend doing this in March when the falls are full and you can really enjoy the beauty and might of the falls. My pilot was great though I forget his name--he was from Germany and very nice to chat with. I highly recommend this experience for folks travelling to see the falls. - Oda Dushime

Great fun, felt safe, interesting pilot who tailored his flight to my request (although a little formulaic in his descriptions - but who wouldn’t be doing this half a dozen times a day?) Collection from Zam/Zim border a little confusing ahead of time but worked ok I would do it again but mainly for the plane ride - Philip Gothard

This trip was a spur of the moment decision and one of the best i made during my time in Zambia. I thought I would be scared to fly in this odd little vehicle, but it was amazing. So smooth and comfortable. The pilot was professional and knew exactly the right words to say to keep his passenger focused on the beauty of the view and not the flight. the trip around the falls was remarkable. Views that you can get no where else. This is so much better than a helicopter because it is open and the flight path is lower, So glad I had the chance to take the first flight out in the morning over the falls. I got to see the Falls on foot, in the air and on the edge. Right after my flight I went to the Devils Pool to top of my all around tour. What a great way to start the day. I so enjoyed my first microflight and looking forward to my next. - Stacey Daniel
