15 minute flight – includes a short flight along the Zambezi River and several circuits over the Victoria Falls. The rainforest surrounding the Falls can be clearly seen as is any wildlife in and along the banks of the Zambezi.
30 minute flight – starts off the same as the 15 minute flight with several circuits over the Falls, but continues downstream over the Batoka gorges, and upstream along Zambezi River and the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National park. These impressive Zigzag gorges have been carved out of the basalt rock by the Zambezi river over the centuries. The aircraft flies low upstream along the Zambezi and the National Park making for a unique game viewing experience. Wildlife such as hippo, crocodile, giraffe and elephant are nearly always seen during this longer flight.
Only a few restrictions apply:-
• Due to the light nature of these aircraft, flights are always completely dependant on weather conditions. We generally have fine weather in Victoria Falls but during the rainy season between December and March flights do get postponed or cancelled.
• There is a passenger weight limit (100kg). Larger customers please contact us before booking.
• No cameras are allowed for safety reasons. However a wing mounted camera is operated by the pilot and photographs are available for purchase at the end of the flight. This wing mounted camera is very effective allowing the pilot take pictures of you with the Falls as the background… a unique portrait and memory that will last you a lifetime. The experienced pilots will frequently take snap shots of the most picturesque areas along the flight path, but you can also request special shots. It’s great because you actually have no choice but to just observe, taking in this marvellous spectacle without having to worry about capturing it on film.
We highly recommend the Victoria Falls microlight flight – it is a once in a lifetime experience that you will surely never forget. It has been described on the Trip Advisor forum as “a highlight of your life” and “one of the most incredible experiences of my life”.
