Can't rave enough but it's definitely the ONLY way to appreciate the falls and their splendor. It's a budget and as a family of 5, we've always shied away from the experience. I'm so glad we decided to do it. We were in a 6 seater Helicopter and we took the 13 minute tour, which in my opinion is more... More

We took our two children (11 & 8) on the 25 minute trip. Yes, it is expensive, yes it is worth it. The views of the Falls from the air is indescribable. We had walked the Falls the previous day and were all extremely overwhelmed by their beauty. However, the Falls were 90% of their high water peak and therefore,... More

This flight placed the great cataract in the broader context of the mighty Zambezi overcoming its first obstacle on the way to the Indian ocean. we took the shorter 10 minute flight which is more than enough to see the Zambesi heading towards the falls and plunging the hundred metres down the gorge flight took on both sides of the...

i took the 15 minute flight over the falls which I was worried would be too brief in duration, however, it was absolutely amazing & it felt like it was a longer flight. As the falls are in full flow at the moment, from the ground the sheer amount of spray prevented half of the falls from being visible. The... More

This activity was absolutely amazing! Such an incredible experience worth ever penny! They film the whole thing for you and have GoPros inside the helicopter that take pictures during the flight. You are able to purchase all of the photos and everything afterwards which is worth it in my opinion.

You have a choice of a 13 or 25 min flight. We decided to do take the longer one as it takes you over the entire Falls and along the gorges a few times; as well as some game viewing from above. We had a very competent female pilot who took us up. Some of the steep turns you do... More

The Flight of Angels is a great way to get a macroscopic understanding of the falls before the walking tour. It is an amazing sight from the air! The only con was that this was one of the only times people attempted to up-sell us – both on the longer helicopter ride (the short 13-minute ride is sufficient in our... More

Like us you will probably only get to the falls once in your life and they can be enjoyed from the ground for a magical experience, having said that the view from the air takes the visit to a new level. Its not the cheapest ride in the world but like I say why go all that way and not... More
