Wife and I chose the 25 min flight. Helicopters can take six passengers, which makes for a very cramped and uncomfortable flight as they try to get all seats full. Staff (ground staff and pilots) not very helpful or courteous, and the video they try...More

We did this after walking around the Falls. It was a wonderful way to get another prespective of the vastness of the Falls. It's great for keen photographers offering a terrific view. The flight of angels goes for approximately 12 minutes. The cabin is quite...More

While this trip is short, it is well worth the price. Having traveled in April when the river was very full, the helicopter tour provided amazing views of the Falls and wonderful photo opportunities. Everyone was friendly and the wait was short. A must if...More

If you have not seen the falls from the top, you haven''t seen the falls in their entirety. The flight of angels is a must, worth every penny.

The helicopter ride is worth doing and competes very well with international prices . The pre-tour briefing of the flight path is alright, however it would make more sense and fun if the pilot interacts with passangers during the flight. Noise cancellation headsets inflight would...More

I was quite nervous about thisas I had never been in a helicopter before. The ground crew and pilot were amazing. They went over everything in detail. The views when flying were absolutely spectacular.

I was wondering if everyone gets a window seat in the Helicopter over the falls. I am visiting in Early May

Yes and they also do two circuits over the falls in opposite directions so each person is looking down at the best view from their window. Two people have to sit facing backwards (like I did) but it feels ok.

Do you have to cross the Zambian border at all? Does it depart from Zimbabwe or Zambia? The reason I ask, is because we want to know if we need a Zambian visa, and if so, that could mean that we need a Yellow Fever vaccination and certificate and visa fees, which would obviously make the helicopter ride extremely expensive??
