Amazing experience, the best way to appreciate the falls!

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 !

Being a nervous flyer myself I was very anxious about participating in my first ever helicopter flight but decided I was not going to visit Victoria Falls and miss out on this 'Flight of Angels', and boy am I glad I talked myself into it, it was so amazing, and recommend it to anyone and everyone.

I believe that no visit to the Victoria Falls could be complete without a flight over the falls! I would recommend that you first do the tour of the falls on foot the previous day and savour the beauty and majestic power of the water up close (remember to take a waterproof poncho or raincoat!) before taking the flight a...

We were really pleased to see this operation being run by Africans. We'd done a few other flights in Africa and it was always white people making all the cash. Not here. The whole staff including the pilots were African. It seems expensive when you know the flight is only 12 minutes but trust me when you are up there... More

Some of the view of the falls was breath-taking. One of a kind life experience that I would recommend.

Beautiful Victoria Falls looked even more majestic and wondrous from the safety and comfort of the Shearwater Helicopter. The entire activity from lift off, flying over the Falls up to the landing and watching the DVD of our trip was a totally wonderful experience.
