Overview

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.

Great micro light flights. Worth doing. Lots of fiddling around afterwards in selling the "go-pro photos" from the wing.

Such an amazing view of the falls and the Zambezi! From the flight, I even got to see elephants bathing in the river, buffaloes, and hippos!

My 4 boys, ages 14-9, thought the 20 min helicopter flight over the falls, down through the gorge and over the animal park was spectacular. The flight through the gorge was a real life amusement park ride!
