          12-13 Minute Victoria Falls Helicopter Flight The most popular helicopter flight in Victoria Falls known as the “Flight of Angels”. This helicopter flight takes off from the helicopter pad and heads straight for the magnificent Victoria Falls. The pilot will complete left and right hand orbits over the Victoria Falls. This allows passengers on both sides of the helicopter fantastic views of Victoria Falls. The helicopter then heads upstream and over the Zambezi national Park before landing.

          Relaxing sunset cruise
          This was a nice relaxing cruise. The opted for the signature level (top floor). Was refreshing to have reserved seating for our entire party of 4. Wait staff were attentive and friendly. Drinks and appetizers started coming as soon as the boat left the dock. We looked at several ship options before selecting this one. The boat was a little larger than the others and was nice and clean. The River was smooth. We saw hippos and water buffalo. This boat does not go to the falls but we did see lots of animals.

          You get an elephant, you get an elephant
          Today, I saw more elephants than people. Chobe offers quality game viewing both by vehicle and boat. It also offers intimate and upclose encounters with Africa's biggest land mamal. In addition to that, numerous herds of Impala, Cape Buffalo's, Hippos, and Giraffes. Fish Eagle, Hornbills, Egrit, Oxpecker's, Hornbills, and our favorite Southern African bird found in the city and Safari Hadeda's.

          Chobe - pros and cons
          Chobe National Park is almost guaranteed to deliver, when it comes to game drives. In just a few hours we saw hundreds of elephants, zebra, springbok and hippos plus giraffes, buffalo, wildebeest, kudu, lechwe etc. as well as a varied birdlife. That said - considering the exorbitant entrance fees to the park, there should be a little left over to update the signs in the park. Many have, I suspect, been used by elephants etc. to rub itchy spots, the directions on the signs are worn off and impossible to read, or the signs have been tipped over. This goes for Savuti as well. It is very easy to loose your way or end up in dead ends or heading in the wrong directions. As for the tar roads leading to the north of Botswana - they are a disgrace. The road from Sehitwa via Shakawe we named Pothole Avenue - the tar is in some places nonexistent, which is almost to be preferred to giant potholes that are almost impossible to avoid. The same goes for the Maun-Nata-Kasane road. The government of Botswana should be ashamed of not maintaining the infrastructure - but maybe the politicians are more interested in short term mining adventures with foreign investors skimming the profits and ruining the roads with heavy trucks. Botswana could learn a lot from Namibia - if you want to experience Chobe, go via Caprivi if possible. Kasane has a lot of lovely, expensive lodges, campsites and also a growing amount of private guesthouses. The town is growing, but apparently without much thought to the main source of income: Tourism. In the evening, the old centre of Kasane is practically dead, no evening life, except at the lodges and larger guesthouses. A bit of city planning would go a long way. But city planners seem to be interested solely in developing industrial areas and boring mainstream malls on the outskirts of Kasane. We lived in Botswana 30 years ago, back then Kasane was small, but lively and pleasant to visit!

          Driver was late picking us up! Later found out that people who paid more for the cruise were picked up first! Also, we went with this cruise because it says 20 people max., however when we finally go to the boat there was about 80 people on the boat! Food and drinks were very good. Excellent staff! Saw elephants and hippos on our cruise.

          Having completed trips from the Zambian and Zimbabwe side I would recommend Zam side only because their boat was more authentic

        Our copter orientation specifically stated that the pilot would make 2 loops so that people on both sides would receive equal views of the Falls. Instead, the people on one side were treated to much more extensive views and flying time.

        When we landed, one of our companions asked if the two of us on our side of the 4 person cabin, asked we felt short-changed because we had seen less. Our photos, when compared with the other people’s, confirmed this.

        We asked for a 50% refund, but the company declined. Instead, they offered us another flight the next day but we were unable to go because our group was leaving for Cape Town.

        Our tour leader was unsuccessful in working with the copter company to make this right.

        Therefore, be warned that you may pay $250 for a 22 minute flight & get half or less than what you pay for.

        Very disappointing!!

        Dear Karin, I am sorry that you did not get the flight you were expecting, I am also surprised as the Pilots have a set flight protocol that they adhere to. Can you please give me the details of your booking, the name the booking was done under and date and time of the flight, and I will certainly tale this up with the senior management. Please provide this information so I can assure that corrective action is taken.

        Customer Background: We are an US citizen family of 7 with 5 kiddos - the youngest is 5 years old. We've been living in RSA for 3 years and we travel around the world, previously living/visiting in various countries in continents such as Europe, Asia, Oceania, and now Africa. The views on this tour were stunning! I love that the staff takes photos and videos to capture the whole experience. We had a lady pilot that talked to us and reassured some of my younger kiddos that started to get nervous in their first helicopter ride. She was amazing, I hope you get her. My husband (we had to split up 5 in one trip and two mixed in with another group) had a male pilot and said he didn't talk to them - so the lady pilot made an extra effort. We also did Victoria falls from the Zim and Zam sides and from the trolley tour, but my kids loved seeing the falls from the helicopter tour. The staff was quick in informing customers of the safety rules and the whole experience was fantastic. They also came and picked us up from our lodge and even dropped us off at the shoppes on the way back 👏🏽 👌 😀.

        Our experience was booked and completely paid before coming. Once we were at the place, they asked us to pay for some fees which were already paid in advance. However, no one from the company said anything before. This is very dishonest of them, and no one was able to give an explanation of what happened. I wouldn’t recommend this company since they are going to charge for nothing in order to gain more money, being completely, and I said before, dishonest.

        However, the flight itself was good, and the pilot was excellent same as the chofer who took us to the place.

        It’s a pitty that with such excellent people which are doing their job, the management team from the company was so bad.

        Dear Iciart 2022, Thank you for sending in this report, however I would like to set the facts correct, for the Helicopter Flight, there is a Government Aviation Fee of US$15 per person which is payable at check in to the activity. This fee is clearly stated in the Viator Booking System as NOT INCLUDED in the booking, so you may have not read your booking properly, or the ticket after your booking. The booking system does not have the ability for you to pre-pay this Government Fee, so it would not have been possible for you to pre-pay the fee. I reiterate, this is a Government stipulated fee and none of the Helicopter operators receive any financial gain from these fees. If you would like to contact me and give me your name and the date you did the flight, I will check the booking and provide you all the backup to this booking.

        We took the 12-15 minute flight, which gave plenty of time to view the falls and surrounding area. Flight felt very safe and all precautions seemed to be taken. It gave a fantastic view of the falls from several directions. The video was a bit cheesy but bought it anyway for the memory. One word of warning - the shop is a rip off so buy your souvenirs elsewhere.

        Everything about the trip was efficiently organised - from pick-up and return to hotel, explanations and information pre-flight and the flight itself. Which was memorable. With views of the falls, the river and the surrounding countryside. At the end the photos and video package was worth every penny it cost. Altogether an unforgettable experience.

        I visited Victoria Falls in December 2019 and took a helicopter ride over the Falls. The views from the flight were amazing of the Falls and the Zambezi River. The Falls are low in December but actually you get a wonderful view and can really see the scale of the River and Falls, as the spray from the Falls is far less. I think its worth the money the do the helicopter ride. The helicopter ride is only 12 / 13 mins but I think its long enough to appreciate the Falls and we saw some wildlife along the riverbanks too.

        Took the 25 min flight and it was simply amazing to be able to see the falls and the surrounding forest and river from above. The flight wasn't scary at all. And at the end of the flight, you can buy photos/video from them. Highly recommended to do this. Best is to take the flight earlier in the morning or late afternoon when the sun is not so strong. Got to book earlier as it is pretty popular.

        Oh wow wow wow. This trip was amazing. So efficiently run too. We missed the guy picking us up but he asked the hotel staff where we were and saw us drinking a coffee. He decided to leave us for 15 minutes and came back. So lovely. The helicopter ride was out of this world. I thought I was going to be scared but it was just so amazing that I didn’t get scared at all. Thoroughly recommend to anyone.

        My cousin who was my travelling companion said I was crazy to even think of doing it. I love flying and doing exciting things and I just had to do it. I was privileged to sit up front and had a bird's eye view. It was amazing !.
        To fly over the mighty Zambezi and see the source of the most amazing dramatic Falls has to be seen to be believed. Thank you Raymond (pilot). I almost went again but considered the Dollars.
