This is an absolute must do! Ariel views are amazing but the best is when the helicopter flies into the gorges just spectacular! Not cheap at around £350 however it's worth every penny! We saw elephants, hippos, buffalo and zebras on our flight. Tip - don't buy the video as it's only of you when you enter the helicopter and... More

Wow, what an experience. From being nervous (first ever helicopter ride) to total amazement and excitement, the helicopter flight is a definite must for anyone wanting to be in awe of the enormity of the Falls. I am so blessed to have been able to have this experience. The staff and crew were friendly and competent. Thank you Shearwater for... More

I went on a helicopter flip over the Victoria Falls on Wednesday and it was absolutely amazing! The staff were efficient and friendly and the helicopter trip was awesome! Amazing sights to be seen and truly a once in a lifetime experience!! So worth your time! I would definitely recommend the helicopter flip to anyone traveling to Vic Falls!

We chose the longer 25 minute helicopter flight and are so glad we did. The flight made several passes over the falls in different directions so that no matter which side of the helicopter you are sitting on you get a clear view of the falls. Next we followed the narrow, zig-zagging gorge carved by the river at the bottom... More

Although the spectacular flight is rather expensive, it's the best you can do. You get to see the falls from different angles and then the gorge. And even animals! We saw elephants, buffaloes and hippos. We were picked up punctually. At the helicopter base, we were weighted and introduced to the other couple flying with us, so that we could... More

I and my wife arrived Victoria Falls at noon for a one night visit from Livingstone. Our plan is to see and enjoy the sight of Victtoria Fall. So we decided to take the helicopter tour of Victoria Falls. It was fantastic and really enjoyable experience. The weather was clear. Our pilot Eric took us as the planned routes. We... More

Was great to see the falls from a different view. Would recommend doing it but think it's pricey for the amount of time your up in the air.

A memorable experience indeed. I must say the view of the falls and the national park from the helicopter is quite amazing. Most people say this is a pricey activity but for me it was worth it (being my first ever helicopter flight and all). It was a short flight but the view was to die for. If anything be... More

We also had to pay to fly over the National Park, this could have been included in the already expensive cost of the flight. The flight was spectacular with scenery, but unfortunately there was no commentary. We could have bought a DVD, which wasn't our actual flight, but pictures of us getting on/off the helicopter were included, plus a couple... More

We took the "Flight of Angels" , which gives a figure of eight manoeuvre over the entire falls area. The flight provides an insight into the whole geological phenomena, which is difficult to observe from the ground. Shearwater are a name to rely on and they provide a whole range of services in the area, including boat trips, taxis and... More
