Took my wife for her first ever sight of the falls last week. Also her first ever helicopter flip. Sadly she could see nothing as she was squeezed into the middle seat. A passenger with a mighty big camera blocked the one window and me with my large frame blocked the other. Perhaps the centre seat should be half price?... More

The falls are amazing from above. An experience you cannot miss. Although 12 mins seems short you do get to see the falls from many angles.

Shearwater runs a tight ship at Victoria Falls, and the 15 minute helicopter flip is certainly no exception. Through our hotel we arranged a flight for the afternoon we arrived. The driver was a little late to collect us and we were worried that we would miss our slot and not have another shot at it. However, when we did... More

Many thanks for kind review. We are always looking for areas to improve. We will shortly be introducing some audio headphones so clients can have a commentary whilst on the trip, and are also currently in the process of upgrading our dvd. Appreciate you taking time share a review. More

We enjoyed our flight over the falls--it was amazing! The falls were beautiful, the flight was smooth and the crew was very nice.

The 10-12 min flight was a great addition to our Victoria Falls experience. The operation is slick and professional, based next to the elephant hills hotel. I understand all flights are operated by the Zambezi Helicopter Company, owned by the Shearwater company. Cost is USD140 per person, plus a USD12 per person parks fee. Flight duration is just right, a... More

Always appreciative of a complimentary review so thank you. I have done the trip many times in the middle seat, and genuinely haven't found it to diminish the experience at all. More

I chose the 25 minute tour, since I wanted a less rushed experience. I first viewed the falls from the land. As amazing as this was, it quickly becomes clear that the falls are far too expansive to view from one single location. The view from the air allows you to see the entire width of the falls in one...

Thank you for sharing your views and would entirely concur that the trip is all about different perspectives - you can't get real appreciation of the scale of the falls on the ground, and of course while it is wonderful to see game from the air as well - you need to be on game drives to really get the...

Staff was very friendly and helpful. The entire process is filmed and then nicely presented for viewing/purchase after the trip (still photos & video). Transportation from lodge to site was quick and prompt. I would recommend Flight of Angels.

Fantastic flight., not to be missed. My only disappointment was being squashed in the middle so not having very clear view for taking photographs. I'd love to go back and do it again, if I were to do so I would definitely upgrade to the longer flight, and make sure I scored a better seat!

I toured the Falls on foot in the morning and took the helicopter tour in the afternoon. While the experience was exceptional, the booking with the company was not. I had a reservation for 1145 am and was told that I would be 20 mins delayed. On my walking tour of the Falls I met a couple who wanted to... More

Whilst very pleased that you enjoyed the activity, obviously I am disappointed that things didn't run as smoothly as we would have liked, given the high standards we try and achieve. I am not familiar with the specifics but will investigate, and whilst I wouldn't want to be seen to just grasping at excuses, with so many transfers and individual... More
