Microlight Flights over Victoria Falls (Zambian side)
The microlight excursions are a more adventurous way to see the Victoria Falls. As they offer a unique, uninhabited and literally breathtaking view of the Falls. And the spectacular gorge that the Zambezi River has carved into the surrounding landscape over many thousands of years.
One person and an experienced pilot take a 12-15-minute microlight flight over the Victoria Falls and the Zambezi River.
As with the helicopter excursions, there’s a longer 25-30 minute option aswell. This takes you over the Zambezi river, circling over the Victoria Falls and its islands. Then you fly upstream along the Zambezi River to Kalai Island, flying low over the Mosi-oa-Tunya Park for unique game viewing. But it is literally double the price as well as double the time.
Daily flying times are between 7am and 10am and 3pm to 6pm. But this varyies slightly by season. The minimum age is 8, however if a younger child is tall and can fit properly into a harness then they are permitted to fly. (But all children are charged at full price!).
Note – personal cameras are not permitted on microlight flights due to safety reasons.
Logistics – the Microlight flight takes off from Zambia but you can get a transfer over from the Zimbabwe side but it is more expensive. The price below is for a 15 minute flight from the Zambian side.
