“Helicopter ride over Victoria Falls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Its lovely to visit Victoria Falls. However to get a different view and perspective of the falls one needs to take the helicopter ride over the falls. It was my first time on a helicopter and it was awesome. United Air company were very professional. The view was spectacular and the grandeur of the falls and the horseshoe shape was evident from up top.

“A Life Time Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

You have flown a long way to reach Victoria Falls, one of the great wonders of our world. Don't miss the opportunity to take the flight of the angels to put into perspective and really capture the grandeur that is Victoria Falls and the mighty Zambezi river. I took the flight 20 years ago in a Cessna "fly by the wire" aircraft and it was a wonderful experience. Today the clear views and the luxurious comfort of the UAC helicopters make a wonderful experience so much better. The relaxed, friendly yet very professional atmosphere from hotel pick up in the open air 4wd to the hotel drop off is one of the best value investments you will make on your visit to Vic Falls. Safety and procedure is paramount as you would expect and it is delivered with quiet confidence.
It's a long way back there... don't risk the regret of not seeing Vic Falls from the sky!

We are going back again for a third visit!

“This is a MUST do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Once you have walked to see the Falls then you must do the helicopter ride to appreciate the enormity of the spectacle. On arrival at the helicopter base we were delighted to see what looked to be a very new beautiful machine. The pilot was very professional and also gave us loads of information as we travelled. The only down side for me is that I was in the middle seat in the back which restricted my view a bit. We thought long and hard before we booked the trip as it is a bit expensive but decided as we had travelled all that way to the Falls we would regret it if we did not do it. We are really glad we did, it was worth every penny.
We didn't do the gorge trip which our friends said was also spectacular.
