Microlight flights in Zambia
Microlight flights are small one-or two-man aircraft that come in two variations; flex wing and fixed-wing. The flex wing microlight flights are mostly recognised due to their 'motorbike with wings' appearance, whereas the fixed-wing aircraft are more like miniature planes. Both offer incredible panoramic views and a feeling of closeness with the sky around you-making a particularly unique flying experience! Companies that offer microlight flights in Zambia include Sigo Adventures & Tours, Batoka Sky Microlights, Wild Side Tours & Safaris and Livingstone's Adventure.

No cameras are allowed for safety reasons but there is a wing-mounted camera that is operated by the pilot and photographs are available for purchase at the end of the flight. This wing-mounted camera is very effective and also allows the pilot to take pictures of you with the magnificent falls as the background, a unique beautiful portrait and memory that will last you a lifetime. The experienced pilot will take pictures of the most attractive areas along the flight path, but you can also request for specific shots. You will have an amazing experience sitting back relaxing as you just observe, taking in this beautiful scenery, without having to worry about capturing it.
