Owner description: Come to Livingstone Zambia and view one of the seven natural wonders of the world - the magnificent VICTORIA FALLS. Also known as "Mosi Oa Tunya" - the smoke that thunders - the Victoria Falls is one of the most spectacular sights in the world and you will be able to view this amazing waterfall from the comfort of one of our helicopters. This experience will definitely qualify as the flight of your life as you embark on the "Flight of Angels". The pilot will orbit to the right and left, enabling passengers on both sides of the helicopter to photograph and view the mighty Victoria Falls. Once completed you will proceed upriver to Long Island and the Mosi Oa Tunya National Park where you may spot some of Africa's large game.

“A Life Time Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

You have flown a long way to reach Victoria Falls, one of the great wonders of our world. Don't miss the opportunity to take the flight of the angels to put into perspective and really capture the grandeur that is Victoria Falls and the mighty Zambezi river. I took the flight 20 years ago in a Cessna "fly by the wire" aircraft and it was a wonderful experience. Today the clear views and the luxurious comfort of the UAC helicopters make a wonderful experience so much better. The relaxed, friendly yet very professional atmosphere from hotel pick up in the open air 4wd to the hotel drop off is one of the best value investments you will make on your visit to Vic Falls. Safety and procedure is paramount as you would expect and it is delivered with quiet confidence.
It's a long way back there... don't risk the regret of not seeing Vic Falls from the sky!

We are going back again for a third visit!

“This is a MUST do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Once you have walked to see the Falls then you must do the helicopter ride to appreciate the enormity of the spectacle. On arrival at the helicopter base we were delighted to see what looked to be a very new beautiful machine. The pilot was very professional and also gave us loads of information as we travelled. The only down side for me is that I was in the middle seat in the back which restricted my view a bit. We thought long and hard before we booked the trip as it is a bit expensive but decided as we had travelled all that way to the Falls we would regret it if we did not do it. We are really glad we did, it was worth every penny.
We didn't do the gorge trip which our friends said was also spectacular.

“Falls from above”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

We did the 15 min. helicopterflight and enjoyed it from beginning to end!! An expensive experience but if you're able to afford it: go for it!! Pilot gave a lot of information and the views are spectacular.
DVD is a nice souvenir!

“You've GOT to do this!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

If you travel all the way here to "see" The Falls, I think this is really the only way to ensure you get the most from your visit! This is a wonderful experience in the safe and professional hands of an expert pilot! We took the trip both over The Falls and then into the Gorge, the second half of which felt a bit like being in a James Bond movie - absolutely thrilling! Do yourself a favour - book and take the full trip and make sure you order and pick up the personalised DVD - you will not be disappointed! Dave & Lynda, Scotland
