About United Air Charter
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.

What a breathtaking experience. We did the 20 minute tour. The pilot was very well spoken and informative. The ride through the gorge was exhilarating. The pilot pointed out elephants and buffalo from the helicopter. It is on the pricey side.

I think a helicopter ride over Victoria Falls is a must-do and totally worth it. We visited the area during low water season (October) and still loved the falls. It's actually easier to see as there isn't as much mist. (Tip: a visit from both...More

We took the 20 minute flight. It was something out of an IMAX movie, diving down into the gorge below the Livingstone Bridge, canyoning via helicopter, then pulling up steeply to re-engage with up-river views and the magnificence of the Victoria Falls.
