Customer Reviews

Thank you so much for a truly breathtaking experience. The mighty Vic Falls deserves to be seen in style.. I was picked up on time , and everyone was very friendly - Mumbi Nkonde

Fabulous experience and one of the BEST ways to view the Falls. The Batoka staff were friendly, thorough and gave clear explanation for the flight. I was thrilled! After living in Livingstone for six weeks, the flight was my final activity, and it was well worth the wait. I had excellent and clear view of the mighty Zambezi and travelling over the Falls, felt the spray from below. This was my final activity on the Zambezi as well, having sat riverside at several of the wonderful bars and restaurants, walking and viewing from both the Zambian and Zimbabwean sides, cruising on the Captains Choice sunset cruise and swimming at Devils Pool. I thoroughly enjoyed the flight and would highly recommend it to visitors. The video of me on the flight is a fun memento to share with family and friends also - thank you! - Beth Sywulsky

Thoroughly enjoyed my flight! The ground staff and pilot were helpful and very friendly and professional. The flight was amazing. After climbing through light clouds we had nice views of the falls. Before landing we even tried to spot a rhino. Lots of fun. Highly recommend. - James Blaisdell

Fabulous trip, whole team excellent. Flight was amazing. For us it would have been helpful to have someone help us through the border controls from Zimbabwe to Zambia. - Julie Jarvis

The experience is one of the highlights from our trip to Vic Falls and Botswana. I have not received the photos or the video which I purchased at the site. We provided 3 emails for each of our 3 flights and only one person received his video. Please let me know who to contact to ask about other videos. Experience was September 2, 2022 at 4:45 pm. Names of people still waiting for their videos: Douglas Wemmer and Taylor Wemmer. Thank you, DW - DOUGLAS WEMMER
