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.

Microlight flight!

What an incredible experience! Nothing can compare to the view and freedom one feels up there with the sun on your face and the wind in your hair!

In one episode of the Amazing Race, the racer did the microlight flight! When I saw it, this is on my bucket list that I need to do! When I landed in Livingstone, I signed up to the flight asap! My initial flight was cancelled unfortunately due to the weather so I was out on the first flight out two... More

As a person who owns a tour company over here in Victoria Falls i took this long flight over the fantastic falls and down in the batoka canyon continuing over the Zambezi National Park and Mosi National Park. Yes this tour is very expensive but worth to do it. I have sent over 100 people to this tour company and... More

I took a 15 mins helicopter flight above the falls. It provided me with a whole perspective view of the Falls. I am amazed about the sizes of the falls. During the flight, a pilot smoothly control the helicopter above the falls in each sides of the falls. Fortunately, I was managed to sit near the window, which was an... More

We booked the 22 minute helicopter flight - what an amazing and exhilarating experience! This flight takes you over the falls and through the gorge! As the rainy season had commenced and heavy rains had fallen a couple of nights in a row, the Zambezi was dirty in colour but the sheer majesty of the volume of water falling into... More

you really get a memorable view of Victoria falls and this place is really a SPOT a worth seeing from this height. Zambia river literally runs in zigzag fashion and looks awsome. But this doesn't come cheap. $170 that too if you book from your hotel. If you go to the venue and ask, they will charge you extra. And... More

What an amazing way to see Victoria Falls & Livingstone from above! My pilot was very confident & experienced & talked me through the experience before we took off. I booked half an hour, but most people do the 15 minute flight.

Watch stunning and scenic views of the falls and the gorges from the sky right over the Victoria falls from Batoka sky microlights. This is the best view by all means and extremely affordable.

Seamless transfer from the hotel to the strip. Had the pleasure of meeting 4 exceptional people; Sam, Rakesh, Kirti and easily the best pilot ever Henko. The 15 minutes I spent up in the sky will definitely go down as the most surreal minutes of my life...and did I mention that I got to steer!!! Thanks Batoka + Henko for... More

My wife and I took a helicopter flight over the Victoria Falls with Batoka Sky. Transfers from and to the David Livingstone Safari Lodge were included. The views of the falls were truly spectacular and it was an unforgettable experience. Our pilot, Cornelius, was very skilled and professional. All his manoeuvres were very smooth and well executed which made for... More
