“Best view of the Falls you'll ever have!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

This seems expensive but it is total value for money. The best view of Victoria Falls is definitely from the air. The helicopter makes several passes so that everyone gets a good view. You can see where the falls has been and where it is going (geologically). The falls looks so spectacular from the air, a long narrow crack in the earth, rainbows form and move along the falls as you fly by. A totally WOW experience.

“Just do it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The helicopter flights seem expensive at first--13 minutes for $150 US. However, the experience is well worth it. Seeing the falls from the air, you can really get a feel for their size--much moreso than from the ground. Our pilot was very skillful and banked the helicopter numerous times to allow everyone to get great photos. We never felt unsafe, but it was over way too soon.

“Helicopter Tour of Victoria Falls... Best Way to See the Falls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

This is the only way to experience the true scope of the Falls. The trip was good... just recommend the short trip. They have good equipment but we've had better choppers in the Grand Canyon and Niagara Falls... better viewing, larger windows. The operation could be a better run... and the video they offer is terrible... not a video of your trip, just stock footage.

“Fantastic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

It might be expensive but if you can do it then you won't be disappointed! Fantastic view of the Falls and surrounding area which gives you an alternative viewpoint of the size of them from walking along the banks and completes the experience.

If you're lucky enough to sit in the front seat you have unobstructed vision although my husband sat at a window seat in the back and had a great view also.
