It was my sisters very first time travelling across the boarder, we were there to celebrate her 50th b/day. From the time we were collected from our hotel and back again, the staff from Shearwater helicopter flights went out of their way to make her day special. Not only was it her special day, but we had friends from USA... More

We booked the flight via Shearwater but the helicopter is actually operated by the Zambezi Helicopter company. When we investigated activities in Victoria falls, we originally had dismissed the helicopter but after meeting 3 different couples who recommended it we decided to give it a try. I wish we hadn't. The flight is very short: 12-13 min (this is clearly... More

Thanks for your very lengthy and comprehensive review. Sorry the word of mouth recommendation to you from 3 different couples didn't match your own expectations. Many thanks More

My family and I decided upon it and we don't regret it at all. The views are amazing!!! They falls are a must see when you are in the area, but from the air you can really appreciate how it's all. The staff was very friendly, no hassles, and at the end they sell a dvd with pictures and a... More

17 friends including my wife and I recently had 2 nights/ 1 full day at Victoria Falls, the purpose being to see the Falls (and not bungee jump, white water raft, or see animals etc). In the morning we enjoyed very much walking the length of the Falls on the Zimbabwe side, then after lunch we had a 15 minute... More

Efficient and punctual pick up from the hotel; not much of a wait for the flight; great views of the falls from both sides of the chopper (doubt if the middle seat would have such a good view). No head set so no commentary by the pilot as I have experienced with other helicopter flights. Well worth the price.

We booked this tour through our travel agent. Though we had a designated departure time and it was supposed to be a private tour for a family of 4, we had to wait 'our turn' as it is quite an assembly line visit. When 2 other customers showed up, they decided to put them with us. We didn't say anything... More

Hi many thanks for the review and delighted you enjoyed the views. It is really a safety issue that means we instruct the pilot not to interact with customers - we just can't have them distracted. July is a very busy time so there can be quite a frequent shuttle of customers, but we always try to ensure personal service.... More

We walked along the Victoria Falls cliffs, but the mist was so strong, it was raining. From the helicopter we saw ALL of the Falls. It was awesome. It really was the best decision that we made as Victoria Falls was the highlight of our trip.

The overall experience was fantastic, giving you breathtaking views of the falls and the surrounding area. The only think that I felt let down the experience was that waiting around at the start, having been booked to fly at 2pm, and not actually going up till 2.30pm. It was very busy, and I am not sure how much of this... More

Hi - Many thanks for the review, and you identify correctly that the SADAC heads of state conference was on at Elephant Hills right next to the Helipad and caused us a few delays - so appreciate the patience. Many thanks. More
