A very professional pilot who explained may things about the falls. To see the falls from a helicopter was amazing. We also flew over the river and saw elephants, hippos and crocodiles. Just wonderful.

I was fairly warned that no seat is guaranteed. However, I didn't expect the rear middle seat to be as bad as it was. The front seat next to the pilot is the only seat to capture good photos but the other window seats are...More

If you're going to visit one of the 7 wonders of the world, this is how to see it to fully appreciate the scale and beauty. The pilot was very knowledgeable with an amazing talent for spotting wildlife when it was there.

At $175 for 15 minutes and $330 for 30, this is an expensive trip but it is worth the money. We took the longer option which combined a double circle round the Victoria Falls nearby with a stomach-churning descent into the canyon further up river....More

Seeing Victoria Falls on the ground is difficult with the mist and all during this time of the year, so why not see it from the air?! 160 bucks for a 15 minute flight seems a little steep, but for people like me who travelled...More

Is there are time- of- day that is best for the flight? For example is it best to wait for any 'morning mist' to burn off? or is there any build up of cloud or mist during the day, so early would be better? We will be there at the beginning of November. Thanks

Hi. Can you please give me the price difference for the 12 minute flight to the 30 minute flight. We are going there in June and would like the option to upgrade. The 12 minute flight is listed as $275.00 per person. Thanks Andrea
