microlight vic falls

Experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the spectacular Victoria Falls from above. The ‘Flight of Angels’ is undoubtedly the most breath-taking way to get those picture-perfect panoramic photographs of the gorges and Mosi oa Tunya National Park.

Designed for one passenger and the pilot you are guaranteed uninterrupted breathtaking aerial views of the’smoke that thunders’. This highly sought-after tour takes off from the Batoka Sky Maramba Aerodrome in Livingstone, Zambia.

Flying Over The Falls

Taking to the skies in a small microlight aircraft for a breathtaking aerial experience over the majestic Victoria Falls is an unforgettable way to see this natural wonder. With just the pilot and one passenger per flight, the flex-wing microlights are open air for a truly authentic flying experience and because they fly lower over the Falls than helicopters you really get a sense of the power of the “Smoke that Thunders”.

The short 15-minute ‘Flight of the Angels’ flight is an exhilarating introduction to the Victoria Falls and the spectacular gorge that the Zambezi River has carved into the landscape over thousands of years. The longer 30-minute version offers a different perspective on the mighty Zambezi as you make numerous circuits over the Falls, zoom over the islands near to the Falls and then fly upstream along the gorge into Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park.

Both flights come with a wing-mounted camera which is operated by the pilot and pictures can be purchased after the flight. For safety reasons you cannot take your own cameras on the flights.

Getting There

One of the most exhilarating things to do in Victoria Falls is taking a microlight flight. This experience will see you flying over the mighty Zambezi River and the spectacular Victoria Falls, affectionately known as ‘The Smoke that Thunders’ in a small, two-seater microlight aircraft.

This experience departs from the Batoka Sky “Maramba” Aerodrome just outside Livingstone town and you can choose from a 15 or 30 minute flight. The shorter microlight flight flies along the Zambezi River and circles the Falls and islands in the vicinity, while the longer version flies upstream to Kalai Island before heading back down towards the Falls and then flies low over Mosi oa Tunya National Park for unique game viewing opportunities.

With only the pilot and passenger on board the experience is incredibly personal and you can really get that bird’s eye view of the natural world. Each flight has a wing-mounted camera that takes photos during the flight, which are provided to you on a CD after the flight.


Feel the mighty power of the Victoria Falls from an entirely new perspective on this once-in-a-lifetime microlight flight. With just one passenger and a pilot in an open cockpit microlight, you can expect to soak up breathtaking aerial views over the roaring Zambezi River and gorges of Batoka Gorge on your half hour journey.

The flights are operated by a team of highly qualified engineers with years of experience who carry out regular servicing to ensure all the microlights have an excellent safety record. Although the ‘Flight of Angels’ helicopter flight also offers breath-taking views, we believe the microlight option is more exciting and will leave you with unforgettable memories.

When Livingstone first saw the falls, he imagined angels soaring overhead and this is a perfect way to get up close and personal with the’smoke that thunders’. A thrilling adrenaline rush that stimulates all your senses. This is a must-do! The cost for the 15 minute flight is $155 and the 30 minute flight costs $310. The photos taken during your flight are included in the price.
