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.

Really wanted to see the falls from the air and we were not disappointed. Chose the 20 minute flight which included flying low down the gorge which was brilliant. The pilot was great, explained the features we flew over really well and with only 4 in the helicopter we all had really good views. If the aircraft was full with 6 people it would be less enjoyable for the two sitting inboard in the back seats.

Brilliant from start to finish, picked up in a safari jeep for the short ride to the heli pad, great reception from very friendly team. The we got really lucky we were the only 2 on the flight, it was fantastic, stunning views, really great pilot who explained all sorts of facts. The drop into the gorge was something else. We have done the heli trip in the Grand Canyon but this 20 minutes was way better. DVD turned up no problem via Dropbox

What an amazing experience this was. Wouldn’t have missed it for the world. We opted for the longer flight over the falls and down the gorge and it was just stunning. I felt very safe with the pilot and he gave us an amazing experience. It’s something that can’t be recreated in any other way. Forms to sign and some waiting around to do if you’re in a larger group as only a few people can do the helicopter flight at any 1 time but there is steel drum entertainment while you wait and you’ll be busy with either anticipation beforehand or elation afterwards. Have fun!

From the hotel pick up to the soft landing everything was extremely professional and safety conscious. The briefings were comprehensive and the pilot informative and considerate, making turns to allow passengers on both sides of the helicopter to see the falls. Don't skimp, you will probably only be here once so go for the 30 min trip

We were looking to fill some time in our IT during our stay in Livingston. So, our tour coordinator suggested doing the helicopter flight over the falls. That sounded fun so we said we wanted to sign up. He asked if we wanted to do the shorter flight or the longer flight. We decided to go for the longer flight even though we didn't really know what we were signing up for... well, let me tell you TAKE THE LONGER FLIGHT!!! After circling the falls a few times you fly out to an area of the gorge where the pilot take the helio down into the gorge and flies about 50 feet above the water with cliffs on both sides. What a thrill! My husband and I are still talking about it.
