          Our driver will pick you up from your hotel then drive 7 -10 minutes to our helipad in the Zambezi National park. On the way to the helipad chances of meeting buffalo and elephants are very high. Once at the helipad one of our attendants will take you through a safety briefing thereafter you will be ready to fly. Between our helipad to the Victoria Falls will be about 1 minute flight on the helicopter. The rest of the time will be spent orbiting over the Victoria Falls.

          Nice flight experience
          Flight was good. The weather was great and the people were very friendly. Was only able to spot large animals like elephants and giraffes in over the national park so unless you wish to see them in aerial, will suggest to skip

          One of the best helicopter tour. Seeing the Victoria Falls from above and seeing animals in their habitat was a great experience from the sky. A must when you are in Victoria Falls!

          This was a great experience! Being able to see the falls and the wildlife from the air gave us a chance to see everything in a different perspective. I would totally recommend taking the long trip.

          An amazing experience, very lucky to see hippo, giraffe and elephant plus the extent of the gorge and falls. Very glad I went for the longer flight as time passed so quickly

        Had a half-hour flight, sat behind the pilot (right side of the chopper).
        Initially flight over the falls which was oke, second quarter of an hour wild-life viewing, which was not worth the money.
        Initially I sighted a giraffe at my side of the chopper, and the pilot made an effort to give the left side also a view of the giraffe.
        After that some very beautiful views followed (sandbanks in the river, elephants on the ground, a waterhole with animals) and the pilot kept everything at the left side, didn't even bother to give the right side a view. My only luck was that when flying back to the base, at the right side of the plane a herd of elefants showed.

        It's not like your in the bus or truck an all the animals only show up on the left side of the road. Here the pilot did have a choice where the fly and just chose to keep everything at the left side. Not even an attempt to balance things.

        Smooth departure and landing, took amazing pictures on top of the Zambezi river, looking at Vic falls from all angles. Overall it was a great short experience. However, I don’t think they should take pictures/videos of clients if they don’t plan to share them. $40 for ask for something you never asked for didn’t make sense to me!

        Jane Makanda and Jo Nkoma provided us with transport to Chicopokopo Helicopters and to and from the Vic Falls Rainforest walk.
        They provided exceptional service , making our trip to Victoria Falls very special and very much easier than it would have been without them. Please feel free to show what we have written to your bosses! We would recommend you to anyone we come across who wants to travel to Vic Falls.
        The helicopter ride was smooth and enjoyable and provided us with a lovely overview of the Falls and the Zambezi river. The pilot and ground staff were excellent.

        Go with any other company! Our lodge arranged this for us and we were really disappointed. We were 4 couple, 8 people total. First, they promised us 2 copters with 4 people each and everyone would have an excellent view. We got there and they put another couple with us forcing 5 into each copter. The photographer of our trip was in a backwards seat with very little visability. 2nd, the ride was barely 9 minutes from take off to landing which meant maybe 5 minutes over the fall. But the worst part was our pilot. He made it very clear NOT to talk to him, ask him questions or bother him in any way. He offered not one single word of commentary or education.
        They try very hard to sell you a video and photos of your experience. It is a video of you getting on and off the coptor and then stock video of the falls.

        Dear Sir/Madam We offer scenic flights and what we guarantee our clients is a window seat to view the falls of which I believe you got a window seat. They was absolutely no reason for us to fly you with two helicopters. The idea was for you to see the Falls not seeing your mates fly in another helicopter. We flew you with other clients in the same helicopter because you did not pay for a private flight that we offered you if you wanted to fly alone. We did not realise that you were shooting a movie and that you had employed the services of a photographer. If you had informed us we were not going to allowed that ,as we don’t offer such a service. Our rides are pre-set to take between 13 to 15 minutes depending on the level the pilot arrives when he gets to the Falls. It is impossible to fly less than 13 minutes. I am sorry that you did not hear the pilot speak. I am sure you were consumed with anger and you did not hear him speak We do sell videos and the propagative is yours whether you buy it or not. Lloyd

        I realize the vast majority of customers had a good experience... unfortunately, I wasn't one of them. I booked the day before and received an email confirming the pickup time. That time came and went. After repeated emails and calls, they sent a driver (an hour late) who said they couldn't find the booking (yes, the same booking they confirmed the night before...). Stuff happens, but this was handled really poorly and unprofessionally. We'll pick a different operator next time around.

        I bought this for our friend who had never been on a helicopter ride and he took his extra $35 with him on top of the $135 to book. My husband and I said that was too much for too little. They treated him well, returned him to the hotel quite early and tried to sell him more stuff. Glad that is done

        What an amazing way to end a great holiday in beautiful Africa. I have never experienced such welcoming energy as well as a high standard of professionalism.

        I booked the 15 minute flight online in advance and when the driver arrived 15 minutes as it is said on the company's profile. Firstly, the driver deserves a good bonus at the end of the year. He was able to be patient with me and my family and tell us a bit of history of Victoria Falls and the townships. He was patient, professional and very friendly which made my family very happy.

        After the flight, they offered us the chance to buy a video of our experience and memories with the helicopter and waterfall. The quality of video was quite good showing us all the possible angles of the waterfall. The pilot who was also very friendly and professional helped us to spot many different animals in the jungle such as elephants, baboons and giraffes.

        Overall, my wife, 2 kids and I had a good time. Would definitely recommend this company for my scenic flight of the Victoria Falls to my friends and family back home. Can't wait to come back and do it all over again!

        Great flight experience in their Robinson chopper, individual window seats giving stunning views of the Victoria Falls and the Zambezi River. Captain Jonathan was totally awesome cool and composed pointing out the sights and view on the Zambian and Zimbabwean side. Am sure the angels are jealous as we get to enjoy the famous Flight of Angels, thank you Chikopokopo!!!!

        We booked for this flight in a helicopter to see the full extent of the Victoria falls from on high, after having walked along the full length of them at ground level. We were not disappointed. The helicopter ride was an experience, and the view from the air was an unforgettable site. It was wonderful to see the full extent of the falls from the air, and we would do this again. Having been to the Victoria falls and seen this amazing natural beauty was a moving experience, which I believe everyone should have, at least once in their lifetime.
