“Flight of Angels” A photographic paradise…“Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by Angels in their Flight”
It is unfortunate that Dr. David Livingstone never got to see Victoria Falls from a helicopter. So vast is the Victoria Falls in its settings that perhaps the best way to see this magnificent wonder is to take a Helicopter flip… Let the flight tell its story.
The “Flight of Angels” is an amazing journey over the 1700m vast curtain of water known locally as the “Mosi oa Tunya” (the smoke that thunders) and along the Zambezi River and the Zambezi National Park. Passengers are treated to an unforgettable helicopter journey comprising of 4 circuits (2 on either side) offering unrivaled spectacular views, photographic, and filming opportunities and putting the full breadth and height of The Falls into glorious perspective within the surrounding environment.
Sunset Cruise “A river of enchantment and magical colors bursting in the sky creating nature’s own masterpiece”, is the only way to describe the African Cruise on the Mighty Zambezi.
Cruise along the banks of the river, and view the spectacular scenery that is nature’s own sanctuary, and home to the “laughing hippos”, the “singing birds” and the “snapping crocodiles”, as you sip on your drink and indulge on mouthwatering snacks.
Enjoy the hospitality of our professional guides and Captains as you relax and enjoy the delicious snacks and chilled refreshments.
See the “smoke that thunders” as you gently cruise the upper Zambezi River. Enjoy the myths and legends as our guides share stories of the local tribes.
Experience the Zambezi River as David Livingstone did and travel through waters once journeyed by him on his way to the Victoria Falls.
Observe the aquatic birdlife and other resident or migratory species.
You may be fortunate enough to witness the great African elephant swimming from island to island, grazing or dusting themselves on the riverbanks.
Guided Tour of the Falls
Victoria Falls is one of the most compelling sites in the world, this cascading column of sheer energy powers it’s way down a 100m chasm, taking your breath away, as you gaze in awe mesmerized by its strength and incredible beauty.

The Tour Guides will ensure that the best photographic opportunities are indicated, whilst mesmerizing the clients with historical and current information, as well as details on the flora, fauna, bird & wildlife, and other related issues on this World Heritage Site. Raincoats are provided when needed.
Historic Bridge Tour
The Victoria Falls Bridge was built in 1905 using revolutionary engineering methods for its day. The Historic Bridge Tour is a journey through 100 years of Victorian engineering to the heart of Cecil John Rhodes’ vision of a Cape to Cairo railway.
The Tour includes a light-hearted but informative talk on the history of the bridge, magnificent views of the rapids, rainbows and majesty of the Victoria Falls and Batoka Gorges on the walkways actually underneath the bridge and an opportunity to see a bungee jump up close.
