Overview

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.

Professionalism can be redefined at United Air Charter, the staff and the entire crew was so helpful and charming. If one visit Livingstone for a Holiday and does not fly with United Air Charter the visit is incomplete. But hey pay my Agent his commission.

Whilst this experience is not cheap it was superb. We pre-booked before we left as we wanted to guarantee that we didn't miss the chance to see the falls from the air. Seeing the falls regardless of the time of year gives you a true...More
