30 MINUTE FLIGHT OF THE ANGELS AND GAME VIEWING : Enjoy a spectacular flight over the mighty Zambezi River and impressive Victoria Falls. After circling the Falls and islands, we head upstream along the Zambezi River to Kalai Island, where we do a low level swoop over the Mosi-oa-Tunya Zoological Park for unique game viewing.

Our Microlight flights offer unique, uninhibited and literally breathtaking views of the Falls and the spectacular gorge that the Zambezi has carved into the surrounding landscape over many thousands of years…

Customer Reviews

What a GREAT way to see the falls! We chose the microlite long flight the morning after we arrived in the area and it was wonderful. My pilot was friendly, helpful and safety minded. I felt totally safe the entire time. We flew over the falls a few times then went up river and saw hippos and crocs in the water... as well as other land animals from above. The office staff were friendly and helpful... no issues with check-in or getting our pics. We recommended the microlite flight to many people already since we had such a great experience. - JDub_PA

Great sxperience. It was a pleasure to do the flight with Heiko, the geramn pilot!!! - Markus Walter

We had an amazing flight over the Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe), the Zambezi river (Zambia) and surroundings. It is safe (also for elderly people), comfortable and unforgettable. Experienced flyers take you over the best spots and give you information trough the headset. During the flight you can communicate with the pilot. If you can afford it, do take the flight of 30 minutes, you will not regret it. On the photo you see, my wife a little further away and the mist of the Falls in the right corner. - Hendrik van Bommel

The experience was amazing! I do not particularly like flying, but this was something else! I dream to do it again! Probably the best thing we had done at Victoria Falls! It’s pricy, but worth it! Totally recommend it! - Helena Kashevsky

Overall my wife and I had a great time on the microlight flight!! The flight itself is exhilarating and we both saw several animals. The falls are also gorgeous when looking at them from above. We had some difficulty with the transport to the microlight flight, and it was confusing who was picking us up and where to meet. Also, we booked a 3:00pm flight, and made sure to be there on time, but once we arrived to the site were told that we would fly at 4pm, and had to wait around there for an hour. Although it was a little frustrating waiting for the flight, we did see elephants at the site while waiting, which was neat. Overall, it was definitely a great experience that we would highly recommend! - Benjamin Perlow
