From the air you get a totally different perspective on the Falls. Breathtaking vistas over the whole Zambezi. Flight itself was very smooth. Even saw some elephants!

If never been on a helicopter, the tour is fine. It would have been more enjoyable if there was a commentary provided on what you see and/or history. Could have been an audio track since they fly the same route multiple times a day. Our pilot only pointed out animals when over Chobi Park. Be prepared for flight changes due to weather which is out of their hands
DebraJ_G, Jan 2023
Such a great experience. I would recommend to everyone to take this tour! We were very comfortable with the pilot, he was very good. There is not a better view of the whole area.
Buyer beware
Greg_V, Jan 2023
Make sure you read the fine print when you book this flight. Under “inclusions.” They also list everything that is excluded, including a $30 per person park fee and fuel level. The whole time you were waiting to get on the helicopter there is a guy jumping around, taking pictures of you, usually without your knowledge. Don’t spend the extra money on the extra 10 minute ride over the national park unless you want to go around in circles looking at an elephant for 10 minutes. Then there is the post flight video that you are forced to watch that shows all the embarrassing moments that lead up to your flight and then they want $50 US for a copy of the flight video and embarrassing photos that they took. The only saving grace on this trip was the views , I expected a lot more for $800 US. Or maybe I expected a lot less.

Dear Greg, Thank you for the time you took to post this review. The National Parks fees and Fuel Levy are very clearly listed on the Website and the Booking Platform and are also very clear on the ticket you get from the booking system, so I don't think the T&C's are "fine print". The Parks Fee is actually combination of a government aviation fee and Parks Fees, and by law all operators have to collect these on behalf of these bodies. The Fuel Levy was introduced last August by all operators due to the steep hike in fuel costs worldwide, and was done as as a special levy as opposed to hiking the price, so hopefully when prices drop it can be withdrawn. In terms of the videography, Im sorry that you felt that pictures of yourself were embarrassing and you felt this was an intrusion, the videos are actually very popular and a high % of our guests do buy these as momentos. Also viewing the videos after the flight is totally voluntary as is purchasing them, and no-one is under any obligation to do either. Overall Im sorry the flight did not meet your expectations, if you look down the long lists of positive reviews here, it obviously comes down to personal preferences and we obviously didn't meet yours, and we are disappointed about this.
Victoria falls from the sky
KYEONGJI_M, Jan 2023
It is special experience for me because I can see whole Victoria falls. I really recommend this. I hope you experience same thing.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you for the great review, it is a special experience and we are glad you enjoyed it
sarah_l, Jan 2023
We did this for my birthday and I can honestly say this is one of the most memorable experiences I’ve ever had, it was absolutely incredible. It’s a must do if you’re visiting VC it’s the only way to see the magnificent falls from an aerial view. Breathtaking 😊
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Hi Sarah, thanks for letting us know you had a great experience, Im really chuffed that you enjoyed the flight of the angels.
Terrible experience, waste of money
Robert_C, Nov 2022
I booked the helicopter flight months in advance and was advised that my booking was provisional as they had a two person minimum for flights. The company would advise of any changes. On the morning of the flight after waiting 20 minutes after the pickup time, the hotel staff contacted the company. I was advised that my flight had been cancelled without consent or consultation; neither was I offered a refund. I had booked the flight for 08:30 when conditions would be favourable for photography. My flight was rescheduled for 15:00 when conditions were really bad for photography but I had no choice but take the flight. The helicopter was cramped with little room to move around to take photographs. There were two other singles on the flight and I had to rush back to my hotel to meet a pickup for a more enjoyable activity. Because of this I did not even get to review the video of the flight.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Hi Robert, I am sorry that you did not have a good flight. Unfortunately the Helicopters do require a Minimum number to fly, due to the cost, and this condition was communicated to you that the booking could only be held as provisional as there were no other bookings. It seems however that the office never informed you the day before, as is procedure that there were still no other bookings for the time you requested, and informed you of the cancellation of your provisional Booking, and for this we do apologise. Often as in this case, there are other last minute bookings, and hence they added you to a booking that came in, again we apologise that it was not the time you requested.

All the staff was professional and the flight was on time and well managed. The pilot was an excellent pilot (I have been a pilot for many years). A very scenic and enjoyable flights.

Simply amazing flight. 5 passengers were on our flight. Seating was comfortable. Pilot speaks to everyone thru your headset. Bubble windows allow for great photo taking. Wonderful views of the falls. We went on a 25 minute flight

Really amazing views! Wish it was a little longer, but the falls were so beautiful from the air. Lovely experience!
Well worth it!
Ciaran_D, Jul 2022
The helicopter ride was excellent. The views were well worth it and overall the experience was very enjoyable. They provided photos and video after and safety felt perfect.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Ciaran, the Flight of the Angels, is one of those lifetime experiences that is hard to beat, so we are so happy that you enjoyed it.
Essential experience to get an idea of the magnificence of the falls
Marthinus_R, Jun 2022
There isn’t any aspect that could/should be singled out. The whole experience is an essential addition to visiting the falls on foot.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Good Day, Thanks for a great review, it really is rewarding getting positive feedback from our guests. We are glad you enjoyed it

Really amazing experience flying over Victoria Falls. Was my first time in a helicopter but everyone was very professional and the trip went smoothly. Highly recommend doing if you visit the falls.

A great experience to see the Victoria falls from the sky. I never forget this it was beautiful. If you want (optional) you get a nice video and pictures from the start of your helicopter tour.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Sander, Thanks for taking time out to review your experience, we are so pleased that you enjoyed it, please don't take too long to come back and visit again
Excellent pilot, amazing...
Petros_H, May 2022
Excellent pilot, amazing views, both of the Falls and of the National Park, BUT I think, it would have been perfect if at certain moments the heli flew a bit lower.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Hi Petros, Thank you for the great feedback, Im glad you enjoyed the flight. In terms of the height of the flight, first and foremost the safety of our guests is paramount, and the flight heights is strictly regulated to all the operators for this reason, and also not to intrude too much on the experience of the visitors on the ground in the Victoria Falls Rainforest. We do hope you come back and visit us again soon
Helicopter ride over Victoria Falls!! Do it!!
Sue_J, May 2022
Booked w/a group of friends. Needed multiple helicopters which they easily accommodated for our big group. Went up in groups of 3 and 5. No real personal attention or interaction from ground or flight crew but the views were amazing and we were safe. Quick, efficient company. Safe operation. Only way to real see the area and Victoria Falls is from the air. I'd fly with them again!!
Response from Host, May 2022
Hi Sue, Thank you for the time you took to do a review. Im glad you enjoyed the experience, and we always welcome constructive reviews so we can constantly improve. Hope to see you again soon.

Seeing the falls from the ground they are magnificent, but seeing them from the air is the only way to appreciate the vastness and magnificence of them
What a view
NathanDickinson484, Jan 2020
