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.

For the 4 seater, if you are stuck in the middle back seat, you are blocked to see up front and have to peer to the 2 sides. It is really unfair to have someone stuck in that seat.

This is at the top of our list of all the adventure activities we've done! Just look at my picture! At first we thought it was pricey but afterwards both agreed it was well spent. The only hiccup was communication. I wish they had told...More

This was a tremendous experience but they failed to tell me the additional cost I would have to incur because we were staying in Victoria Falls and not Livingstone. If you're in Vic Falls, you have to pay $50 per person to cross the Zimbabwe/Zambia...More

The view of Victoria Falls from above was spectacular. This is the best ride to soar over falls and also get to see the animal inhabitants nearby. I spotted the semi submerged hippos easily. Way much better than a helicopter ride with multiple people in...More

A micro light flight over Victoria Falls is simply the best way to appreciate this wonder of nature. You are so much lower than in a helicopter [and your wallet comparatively considerably less impacted]. The 15 minute ride gives you a breathtaking view of the...More

Did a medium flight with my wife over the Victoria falls. Don't want to write to much, as everyone should also feel the same. It was just amazing and thanks to Nick our helicopter pilot, who made it even better. Thanks so much

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!
