Microlight Flight over Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls has been a dream destination for me for many years. It was absolutely breathtaking when I finally saw the falls in person.

Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World is the largest waterfall in the entire world. It’s a truly magical spot.

The falls can be seen from many angles, but nothing compares to the view from up above. A microlight flight is the best way to see the falls in a unique way.

My Flight Over Victoria Falls

My epic girls’ trip to Zambia included a microlight flight. It was a thrilling experience that not only got my heart beating but also showed me incredible views.

The flight was only 15 minutes long, but I got to see everything. We flew back and forth above Victoria Falls, and I was able to view African wildlife in its natural habitat.

There are many ways to explore the Falls

Livingstone’s Adventure was an amazing company. The cost of the flight was $179 USD per person.

Even though it’s expensive on a per-minute basis it’s well worth the investment to experience such an amazing view. It is a breathtaking view and an unforgettable experience to be so high above the falls.

Although I enjoyed my microlight, it was short and sweet. There are other options. The 15-minute microlight can be done in the morning, or in the afternoon.

You can choose to go on a 30-minute excursion in the morning or afternoon if you prefer a longer experience.

Livingstone Adventure offers ultralight flights. These will take you up in a slightly smaller aircraft. It is an identical experience, but you will fly in a slightly different aircraft. If you are afraid of heights like mine, then the small details could make a big difference to your comfort.

For 15 minutes, it is $179 USD or $360 USD if the flight takes place in an ultralight aircraft.
