My relationship with the Zambezi river has been enabled by Shearwater.My education is comprehensive having the privilege of being on it ,along side it and under it with various Shearwater activities,what better way of ending my journey than a view from above to observe the big picture and appreciate my achievements.This genteel approach is something I have earned having negotiated...

It was an exhilarating experience. Do not expect getting too close to the gorge; regulations do not allow it. However, after landing we found out there is an extended flight that will take you inside the gorge farther down the river and lasts 25 minutes instead of the standard 15. You'll have to ask for it when making reservations.

To capture the majestic Victoria falls in flight in a 8 circular flight of Angels from all sides is a lasting memory, wow, thank you Shearwater for making this dream come true.

Went to Vic Falls with my hubby just before Christmas. Stayed at the Vic Falls hotel which was classy and lovely. Lovely experience. Would do it over and over and over again.

The Flight of Angels was the highlight of our trip to Vic Falls. A real treat despite poor weather which threatened to prevent us flying.

This is a must do if visiting Victoria Falls.The helicopter flight over the falls was amazing. The staff ensured we were prepared and showed us on a map where we would be travelling. Every person on the helicopter had perfect views of the falls as the pilot did a figure 8. We experienced the falls from the air, walked the... More

If you experience the Victoria Falls from the ground, this is a great opportunity to get an idea of the shear scale of this magnificent river and Victoria Falls themselves. We did it all by walking the falls, cruising the falls and then to spend some time in the air above which was absolutely amazing. The views are stunning. We... More

The 13 min ride is perfect. You get a unique perspective on the Falls and the Zambezi River. Beware the middle seat. If you can avoid that, you will live the view.

Glad you enjoyed the trip. I do feel the middle seat has gained an undeserved reputation based on a few guests experiences with uncooperative other passengers. We now make a point of asking everyone to be considerate. In those circumstances we feel the middle seat to be one of the best as you get perspective on both sides and with... More

If you are going to Vic Falls, you must do it all and the helicopter flight is a must! The pilot cleverly flies a figure of 8 so that each person in the helicopter gets a great view of the falls! Short, but sweet and felt as though it was a half hour flight. Well done Shearwater for arranging this... More
