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.

The view from up high was well worth it! To see the sheer vastness of the water and the falls from the sky were spectacular! The staff were very efficient and we felt very safe! Thank you for yet another bucket list item ticked!

I was nervous about my 30 minute microlight flight over the falls but it is the best thing I have ever done. Andre and the team are so good at what they do. The flight was absolutely magical and I would recommend it to anyone. Soaring gently over Victoria Falls and then looking out for animals below, it felt close... More

We did a 22min helicopter ride that included a drop down in to and along the gorges. An amazing experience that most of us will never get elsewhere. Ken, our pilot was friendly and informative. The views were spectacular. Definitely on our must do list for Livingstone.

Thank you, Cornelius for making my first helicopter flight so memorable! We took the 30 minute flight over the falls and through the gorge. It was floating on air and we saw the falls and gorge from many angles and also flew above the national park where he pointed out elephant, zebra and Cape buffalo. The thirty minutes flew by...

One of the most amazing experiences of our life. Don't even consider to take the short flight as you will miss out on the best part being the flight just above the water in the gorge !!! Wow what an experience having the adrenaline pumping. This must be the best way to see the falls and surroundings. Not cheap but... More

You must do the Microlight Flight over Victoria Falls and hopefully you will be lucky enough to get Andre as your pilot. We have done many helicopter flights, and they have been wonderful, but the Microlight....now this is an incredible experience! It is the most freeing feeling I have ever had. When Andre told me to put out my arms... More

The 30 minutes flight takes you over the fantastic falls and down in one of the gorge continuing over the National Park where you might see some game. Expensive but worth it. Possibillity to buy a movie for 40USD where they integrate yourself with professional clips from the flight.

When I booked my flight to Zambia I had never heard of a Micro light before, but when I saw the photos I knew I had to do it. Why? Well, because it's strange and when am I going to get the opportunity to do this again? Yes, the price may be a bit high but if you have the... More

We were told we must take a helicopter ride, so we booked but considered cancelling after spending a day at the falls. So glad we didn't cancel. It was fun, exhilarating, with breathtaking views, great commentary and a massive adrenaline rush when we flew through the gorge. Do it and take the gorge option!

A micro light flight over Victoria Falls was the last item on my bucket list and my sole reason for wanting to go to Africa. It lived up to all expectations, you can do either a 15 minute or a 1/2 hr flight. No bumps whilst flying, my friend is afraid of heights but wanted the experience as well, although... More
