Trip Report – Microflight Over Victoria Falls w/ a Flying Bike…

This is part eight of a ten part trip report from my travels to South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe and covers my awesome microflight (microlight flight) over Victoria Falls. This was definitely one of the coolest things I did during my time in Zambia & Zimbabwe, besides maybe bungee jumping off of Vic Falls Bridge. It literally felt like I was on a flying bicycle powered by a lawnmower engine…flying over a gigantic waterfall in between two countries. AWESOME!

I used Batoka Sky (Livingstone’s Adventure) for my flight which at the time was priced at $100. The price has since been increased to $150. You can check out their website here.

  1. Nice Such a great view. I was there in early 2000’s and did the helicopter tour it was awesome. One of the best ways to see the falls is from above.
