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.

Wish I did the ride sooner. Gives you a great prespective and layout of the area. Well worth it and frankly... More

We were picked up from the Royal Livingstone Hotel by a vehicle sent by United Air Charter for a short 15 minute drive to the Helipad. Quick check in and saftey briefing, and we were escorted to the awaiting Eurocopter. We were lucky that we got the two front seats, from where the views were incredible. The nice thing about...

Wonderful helicopter flight over the falls and through the gorge. Worth taking the 30 minute flight. Got a full view of the falls and the trip in the gorge was spectacular.

We booked a 30 minute flight and was well worth it as the views you get are just breath taking from the Air. Our flight was booked for mid morning however we had thunderstorms and our flight was delayed a few hours but UAC kept us informed every hour at our Hotel so a big thank you to Ireen for... More

Helicopter flights and charters of all sorts are conducted by United Air Charters. The stunning views offered by the helicopter rides over the falls are second to none. The rates too!

We visited Zambia in September, and given that it was during the dry season, we were warned that Victoria Falls wouldn't be in its full glory from the Zambian side. Having visited the falls from the Zimbabwean side (albeit briefly), I would still definitely recommend taking a helicopter ride over the falls - we took the 15 minute ride, and... More

We once took a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon, and although expensive, we have never regretted it. So when we saw that helicopter rides were offered over Victoria Falls we didn't hesitate to do it. We chose the 15 minute flight which was plenty long enough. We saw the river upstream and circled the falls CW and CCW so... More

We took the 30 minute ride and although a lot of money so worth it. We visited the Victoria falls from the Zambia and Zimbabwe sides but seeing them from above was amazing, the flight into and through the gorge was so thrilling. We loved the trip!
