You might get cheaper deals elsewhere but you WILL get what you pay for. Shearwater has a wide range of activities and my experience was that they a very well geared for the tourist. They had a very wide range of activities available and the prices were acceptable. I did however got the feeling that they try and push you... More

The longer ride does a better job of going over the falls and circling several times and then viewing the zigzag cuts in the land from the river. It then flies over park land to see animals and the town. WEAR DARK CLOTHING so your reflection doesn’t show up on the windows and your pictures!

We had a wonderful time and enjoyed every second of the Chopper ride. It gave an excellent bird's-eye-view of the Mighty Zambezi River and the Great Victoria Falls. It was worth every penny.

You don't really get a perspective on the falls until you've seen them from the air. In high water season it's even more valuable because the spray obscures the view from the ground.

Our first helicopter flight and I'm so happy we chose this attraction. Seeing the falls by flight was breath-taking. If you can afford it, do it and I promise you will not regret. The pilot was excellent and held the helicopter very steady for photographs/videos. The 12minute flight sounds short, but in reality it is more than enough time.

Fly over the Falls and see them from a different perspective. Worth the price and it gives you some great photo opportunities.

That was our first journey on a helicopter over a breathtaking spectacle of Victoria Falls. We step forward at least with two ticks on our bucketlist and became more rich with unforgattable moments. Highly recommended for everybody.
