Micro-light Flight Over The Falls

Treat your mum to the experience of a lifetime with a spectacular micro-light flight over the iconic Smoke That Thunders.

Choose from a 15 or 30 minute flight, both of which will take you within metres of the Zambezi River cascading over Victoria Falls, and along the lush Batoka Gorge through which the river flows. There is simply no better way to experience the sheer magnificence of this World Heritage Site, and no better person to do it with!
