We visited Victoria Falls in July, still close to high water conditions. Very impressive! We had a perfect day and decided to go for a helicopter flight over the falls. Not really cheap (150 USD/Person plus government levy) but a really good experience and spectacular views. You get an overview on the huge falls that you never get while walking... More

We visited Victoria Fall with two of our teenage children. We have traveled all over the world and this helicopter flight is truly amazing. Our travel agency Smartours helped us book the first flight (extended)in the morning through the flight of the Angles as both my husband and son are photographers. It is the best view ever, thanks for our... More

If you go to the Victoria Falls you definitely have to go for a helicopter flight, it is one of the best experiences at the place. The view is incredible, you will not believe what you see. The flight is a little nit short though, but it is worht it.

Great experience and such a wonderful flight seeing a part of vic falls that can only be experienced by air. Only negative was that there were 5 in the back and one person unfortunately missed out on a window seat. Quite annoying for that person. Bit commercial on selling dvd and photos

My son and I booked this experience and had a thrilling experience. The reception was excellent, with courteous and professional staff. They explained all procedures meticulously and started taking pictures and a video from the briefing till our return. In the air the scenery was simply majestic. We saw the falls from all perspectives and had a good appreciation of... More

I am a travel agent that has taken groups to Victoria Falls twice. Although I have not taken the helicopter flights personally, several of my travelers did and were highly pleased. Making the arrangements were easy with Shearwater. They were professional and pleasant to work with.

We did the walk along the cliff in the morning and I did this in the afternoon. My friends thought it's not good value for money but really it was. The aerial perspective is fantastic and awe inspiring. This is an amazing geographical feature of our planet. You have to see it from above to totally appreciate how magnificent this... More

This is a must-do! We walked round the Victoria Falls in the morning and while it is spectacular it is so much more amazing from the air. You can see the sheer width of the falls and appreciate the scale of them so much more. The flight itself was 12-13 mins but this was long enough to take some amazing... More

To add value to your visit to Victoria Falls - seriously consider a helicopter ride. We went on the "Flight of Angels" helicopter ride which was supposed to last about 13 minutes but our flight lasted well over 20 minutes. The immensity of the Falls becomes apparent when you fly over and around them. The helicopter went up the Zambezi... More

Our family of 6 had a great experience on the helicopter flight. It's not cheap but you get to see the falls from a different angle and can appreciate the spectacular beauty. Only complaint is that you have to pay parks fees (USD 12 per person) when you are in the air !
