We booked Helicopter Horizons from home and made a reservation for a 1 hour flight with landing in the delta with champagne. I made once a flight over the delta and this was the second time. The check-in plus security at the airport was very easy (take your passport with you)

Hi there. Thank you for taking the time to review Helicopter Horizons. A scenic flight over the Delta via helicopter is truly one of the best ways to experience our beautiful wilderness. Being able to fly with doors off and a lot lower & slower does offer such a unique perspective. Early morning and late afternoon does provide amazing lighting, especially for the avid photographer. A champagne stop is the perfect opportunity to enjoy the Delta from the ground mid-flight and of course spend more time with our experienced pilots. Thank you again for the feedback. The team at Helicopter Horizons

We booked a whole helicopter for 4 people for 45mins ($1120 usd) and loved it. Note that they can be booked as part of a shared group as well. We actually booked via Kavango Air (who do small planes) but the flight was with Helicopter Horizons. The team answered questions

Hello Krystle, Thank you for taking the time to review your flight, it's great to hear that you had a fantastic experience. We pride ourselves in offering a doors off experience with all guests receiving a window seat for that unrestricted view, and of course we have the utmost respect for our wildlife. Daniel is a real credit to our team and delighted with the feedback. This season we have experienced a great amount of rain with water levels in the panhandle area already much higher than last year, so we are looking forward to a good flood. Again thank you for taking the time & we hope to fly you again in the future, From the team at Helicopter Horizons

We had 2 opportunities with Helicopter Horizons and both were awesome. At Linyanti Bushcamp, Liam took us for a 30 minute scenic tour with doors off around Chobe. It was awesome and Liam was staying in our camp, so we got to talk to him quite a bit. Just a neat way to see

Hello Darren, Thank you for taking the time to review us. I have passed on your feedback to the pilots, both Liam & Jelmer are delighted, very much appreciate. We are very fortunate in a helicopter to be able to break up the journey with a remote champagne stop and of course to land closer to camp. Thank you for choosing to fly with us twice, we are so glad that you enjoyed your experience. Kind regards, The Helicopter Horizons Team

We booked a 30 minute tour from the lodge and were collected on time by a Robinson R44. It was a 'doors off' flight but my wife was a bit concerned with this so the pilot put the front passenger door on without any fuss. The delta is so dry right now that it was the only real

Hello Martin, Thank you very much for taking the time to review Helicopter Horizons. As a standard we offer doors off for all of our scenic flights, however it is entirely personal preference and it's very easy for the pilots to pop a door or two back on if need be :) Yes this year we are a lot drier than last, it is interesting to see the difference from the air and we are finding game sightings are even better this year because animals are not venturing too far away from the water that remains. We are of course looking forward to the start of the rainy season, hopefully within the next few weeks. Thank you for flying with us. The Helicopter Horizons Team.

We had been warned that the helicopter pilot would remove the doors when he landed to pick us up. I thought our guide was joking, but he wasn't! Nonetheless we were securely strapped in, and the absence of the doors meant the view was completely unobstructed. We were able to

Hi Liz, Thank you for taking the time to review us, we are delighted that you enjoyed your flight. We do pride ourselves in being able to offer doors off scenics for those unrestricted views, perfect for sightings and the avid photographer. Guest hesitation only ever lasts a moment, it's such a great way to see the Delta :) Yes this year we are a lot drier than last, it is interesting to see the difference from the air and we are finding game sightings are even better this year because animals are not venturing too far away from the water that remains.
