I believe the view from the helicopter provides the most stunning images of the falls. If you are interested in this activity be prepared to pay up, as a 12 minute helicopter ride runs around $150. There are longer and more expensive helicopter options but...More

Many thanks for taking time to review your Flight of Angels experience. The 12-13 minutes Flight of Angels is our flagship and most popular experience for the very reason you mentioned above. The other longer options remain available for guests that may want to explore...More

I chose the short, 12-13 minute flight over the falls and it was worth every penny. The flight path means everyone on board (5 passengers) gets a chance to see every angle and take great pictures. In October, it is low water season but the...More

I took the longer flight and am very glad I did. The falls were amazing, lots of opportunity for good photos of the falls. After the falls, the pilot took us for animal viewing. We saw hippos, elephants, wildebeests, Cape buffalo, giraffe and antelope.More

My mom and I did the 12-13 minute tour for $165 and it was worth it! You saw the falls and we took amazing pictures. You saw some of the Bush as well. The safe was friendly and kind. Very professional and safe.

Many thanks for taking time to review your Flight of Angels experience. The legendary Flight of Angels is the most popular of the three flight options for that reason. We will share the compliment with the whole team.

Altho it's a short 14 minute flight, you will see everything as the pilot does several figure-8's over the Falls so everyone has plenty of opportunity to take pictures/videos. It's expensive but worth it!More

Many thanks for the great feedback.It's to learn that you enjoyed your experience. It is no coincidence that the helicopter flight is the most popular excursion in Victoria Falls after the tour of the Falls!

It really depends on how misty the waters are and the cloud cover which varies depending on the weather. I would wait and decide on the day.
