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.

Did the microlight; was an incredible experience for the views it offered, as well as for the freedom-filled feeling with being just yourself & your pilot up in the air. In addition to the river & the falls from both Zimbabwe & Zambia views, was...More

Much better than to see the falls by Helicopter. You are alone with the Pilot and enjoy the flight and nature directly.

$185 will see you fly over Victoria Falls like a bird. Spread out your arms and feel the freedom of sitting on what seems like a motorbike with a shade sail over the top. The difference is that you are at 1000 feet. This is...More

I opted for a 30-minute flight in an ultralight...a bit larger than the microlight...so I could enjoy an overflight of both Victoria Falls and a private game reserve. My pilot, Grant Welsh, an 8-year veteran of ultralight/microlight flight, was extremely courteous and informative about the...More

You can book at the Falls- I did it the afternoon before through my hostel and was flying the next morning. Just make sure you book directly or use a reputable booking agent. Enjoy!
