Flight of the Angels

When David Livingstone arrived in Victoria Falls he wrote "scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flights".

Fast forward 150 years, and that's exactly what you can do. And so the name 'Flight of the Angels' was coined for scenic helicopter flights over the falls, one of the best ways to see them in their full splendour and really appreciate the beauty of this natural wonder. This is an extremely popular activity for visitors.

  • A bird's eye view of the falls, literally
  • Enjoy the thrill of a helicopter flight
  • Opportunity for some unique photos
  • Once in a lifetime opportunity
  • Different flight durations available

What to expect

The usual modus operandi is for the helicopter to turn out towards the Falls after take-off. You will then fly right and left hand circuits over Victoria Falls so you can get the best views and photo opportunities. Then you'll zoom up the Zambezi River and back over the national park before putting your feet back on terra firma.

Where to go

Flights take place from Victoria Falls town itself or from Livingstone, close to the main attraction so you don't waste valuable flying time getting to and from your destination. We can pre-book a flight for you to ensure you don't miss out. At peak times, they do get pretty busy and booked up. If you are staying in town, transfers from your hotel or guesthouse are included.

When to go

The flights are offered all year round. The water levels vary throughout the year, reaching their peak flow in April/May.

You can opt for a 12/13 minute flight or a longer 25 minute flight which will also take in Batoka Gorge, on the return leg you will fly over the upper Zambezi and the Zambezi National Park. It's an experience to remember.

How to do it

The best way to organise a helicopter flight is to pre-book it before you set off on your trip, that way you can guarantee availability, otherwise you may have to hang about a bit as this is a popular activity. We can do this for you and take all the stress out of organising your holiday, after all, it's what we do!
