Helicopter Rides is popularly known as the ‘Flight of Angels’. This Helicopter flip takes you to scenic view of the mighty Victoria Falls. It has become the most admired activity to do in Victoria Falls and Livingstone.
Helicopter Rides takes a minimum of 13 minutes in flight while the longest being 30 minute flights. The view of the landscape around the waterfalls is so amazing. Most of the Batoka gorge that forms the waterfalls along the river can clearly be seen from the air.

The Zambezi national park and the Mosi-oa-Tunya national parks are home to the big 5 game. Rhino tracking can be done in Mosi-oa-Tunya national park in the company of Rangers.
Wildlife can be seen from the air as you fly low above the waterfalls and the surrounding area.
This is just one of the many activities that will captivate your stay in Zambia and Zimbabwe. During your stay in Victoria Falls Holidays and Livingstone holidays you have the opportunity to explore all activities in the 2 towns
Nothing compares to observing and experiencing the impressive Victoria Falls from the air. As Dr David Livingstone eloquently jotted down in his diary in 1855: ‘scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in flight’. A mile wide (1708 metres), the Victoria Falls are the world’s largest curtain of falling water. The 12/13 minute helicopter flights (US$150 Zimbabwe/US$189 Zambia) with window seats for all provide an outstanding photographic opportunity to capture the full breadth of Victoria Falls, the islands and neighboring rain-forests. It’s amazing to witness how spray blasts out of the chasm as the full volume of the Zambezi crashes down 108 metres. The 25-minute game flights ($284 Zimbabwe/$360 Zambia) continue down to the Batoka Gorge and offer an opportunity to spot wildlife from the sky as well as take in the beautiful scenery of the Batoka Gorge. You’ll witness the wildlife areas of the Zambezi National Park (Zimbabwe) or the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park (Zambia). It is only from the air that you can truly appreciate this phenomenal sight of a 1700 metres curtain of water. The flight also captures the Batoka Gorge before heading back to the Helipad. Livingstone’s Angels flight is only over the Victoria Falls and some of the Gorge, the Livingstone’s Experience Flight is the Angels flight plus more time over the National Park and the amazing Gorge’s.
