Customer Reviews

I went to your activity because of the pilot expertise that was advertised on the internet and recommended through Trip Advisor For my girlfriend the experience was thrilling and a great time For myself however it was a complete nightmare filled with a lack of trust on your pilot who refused to keep both hands on the steering bar as evidenced by many shots with him with no hands or barely one hand on the bar. It was an extremely bumpy ride because he was not piloting the plane correctly. In fact at times I felt like I could have fallen out of the plane as a simple seat belt is all that was holding me to the seat. Worst experience in my life and I have done paragliding and hot air balloons many times over the years. Pilot should be released from your company. Look at the tens of photos showing him with no hands - Jean Pierre Di Vito

It was very much exciting, unbelievable impressive and unforgettable to see this nice places from this view. Especially with the very good pilot Heiko. I can recommend everybody to do this too. Thank you for this wonderful adventure !!! - Wolfgang

Simply unmissable! - Cristiano Nicolini

Great experience. Grant the Pilot was very friendly and I felt completely safe. Had great views of the falls and saw a fair bit in the game park. Only one down side we had booked for 3pm and to to be picked up at the border as we were staying on the Zimbabwe side. We had no idea what time we would be picked up and there was no tel no on the confirmation to call once we reached our accommodation in Zimbabwe and even our hotel couldn't find a no to ring. We ended up getting to the border 1.5 hrs before our booked flight time. Walked around then went into a touristy place and they called to see when we would be picked up. Sat there for half an hour got picked up then got to Batoka skys to be told we couldn't fly til 4pm. Flight great - communication from Livingstone adventures very poor. - Susan Taylor

SENSATIONAL!!! Literally one of the Top Ten (Five?!) best things I've EVER done in my life! :-O :-D 30 minutes cruising at an altitude of only 1,500 feet, feeling truly free, being able to feel the wind and see without obstruction the herds of elephants and buffalo, zebras, various antelopes, hippos in the mighty Zambezi - and, of course, Victoria Falls ('Mosi-oa-Tunya' - 'the smoke that thunders' - according to the local Kalolo-Lozi people), UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. I deliberately chose the first flight of the day to catch the big, red sun still rising, tentacles of mist weaving through the treetops. Truly amazing :-) - Vinay Kishore
