The splendor of Victoria Falls really comes alive from the air. Our pilot, Mike, was clearly experienced and very, very competent. He effortlessly guided us over the Falls and Gorge so that we all had spectacular views from every angle. The spray of the falls...More

The pilot and aircraft are superb but the support staff tardy and disinterested to the extent we missed our next activity.

Fantastic flight over the Falls - great value - the UAC helicopters are very smooth and have huge windows - I am a pilot too - it's a top professional setup.

Helicopter flights are always going to be expensive, but sometimes you just have to bite the bullet. We opted to pay the extra for the extension down the river canyon, and I myself found this bit even more exciting than flying over the Victoria Falls....More

First helicopter flight so a bit anxious. Staff maintained need for safety and caution without dampening anticipation and excitement. Pilot explained the flight plan beforehand and pointed out each segment so we could be ready to take pictures if we wanted. Angelic experience!!

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
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

Sorry for the delay in answering your question. We were there in May when the river was very high so lots of water and mist. The river drops slowly from then so probably less mist now. We could not see the bottom of the main... More
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
