What a wonderful name - the Smoke That Thunders and there is no better way of seeing the 'smoke' than by taking a helicopter trip to view the Victoria Falls from above. Now I don't like helicopters usually - as a one-time glider pilot I prefer my flights to have greater safety margins built in to them than a helicopter... More

Get concierge of your hotel to book you the 15min chopper flight over the falls and Zambezi River. Costing $150 USD + $12 USD park fee the views are stunning, great for photographers and there are gorges that you didn't even know that existed!

This was my wife’s first helicopter flight and she could not have had a more spectacular one to start. It was the highlight of our visit to Victoria Falls. She even got to sit up front which was an excellent vantage point and lots of help from the pilot on picture taking and the animal spotting. Our walk along the... More

This was definately a priceless experience. The view from the top is the best way to see the Water falls and the town. This was my first ever helicopter ride and being a resident in Victoria Falls town i got to see the Water falls from another angle and it was amazing.

The cost of a helicopter ride may be a deterrent. but the view from the top is something you do not complain about.

I took the Zambezi Spectacular which is a longer flight than the normal one. 27 mins of pure pleasure it was going over the spectacular Victoria falls and then maneuvering over the gorges and then returning to watch the game at the National Park, We spotted Elephants, Zebras, Giraffes on our flight. The helicopter experience itself was an enjoyable one... More

Amazing view flying over the victoria falls. I brought my ipad and I recorded a video from up that I have shared with friends and family. Bring a nice camera to take beautiful photos of the panoramic Zambezi river flowing to the falls. The falls is an amazing breathtaking scenery with a huge colorful rainbow. It was a lifetime experience,... More
