Overview

Batoka Sky has been active in the aviation industry since 1993 and is the only aviation operator in Zambia that is licensed to operate helicopter, fixed wing and micro lights. Due to the close proximity of Maramba Aerodrome to the Victoria Falls, our aircraft are within half-a-minute reach of the Zambezi river. The surrounding National Parks ensure a host of exciting game sightings, and shortly after take off you can be enjoying breathtaking views as you circle over the magnificent Victoria Falls. Our flights can be combined with many of the other adventure activities in Livingstone, offering good value for money.

Amazingly safe, very well run operation, and top notch pilot (mine was German, my wife's was Afrikaans) but most of all, you can't say you've seen Victoria Falls until you've seen it from the air, unobstructed by glass, and feeling the wind. Sounds expensive but...More

It was such an amazing experience. Though it was quite costly at USD185 for a 15 minute flight... it was well worth the money. My pilot, Heiko put my initial anxiety at ease, he was constantly talking to me and pointing out what we were...More

We were in Victoria Falls in July. High water means that views of the falls were restricted from the ground. The air was the only option. We considered the helicopter flight, but I’d always wanted to take a micro light flight so this was my...More

A truly one-of-a-kind experience of flying over Victoria Falls as well as the surrounding area chock full of elephants, giraffes and other animals. A micro-flight (or ultra-light as we say in the US) is the best way to see the sights. You fly 400 feet...More

No words can describe the magical, theatrical or tummy turning excitement a flight over the mighty Zambezi creates. Known as "Mosi-oa-Tunya", the smoke that thunders by the locals.Seeing this 108m drop of water thundering down from above and hearing its mighty roars of power is...More
