We booked our helicopter trip on arrival at Batonga Guest Lodge. In fact, they organized it for us. We were collected and taken to the helicopter pad, and after a brief safety meeting, we were off. We were six people including the pilot , so...More

Well organised team through pick up, welcome, introduction, flight and return to hotel. Clean and reasonably new helicopters give good views to all passengers and allow both sides of chopper to get a close up look by turning around at key points. Opening portals to...More

On April 9th this year the water level of the Zambesi was about 2 meters above normal. So walking along the ridge we only had a few glimpses of the falls, mostly at Devil's Gorge. Other than that we got soaked from the spray and...More

My husband had a better experience sitting next to the monosyllabic pilot than the 3 women sitting in the back. We took the 22 minute flight, which wasn’t negotiated and 5 minutes of that precious time was spent going over the bush looking for animals,...More

I was very reluctant to do a helicopter ride in Africa out of all places. Bonisair picked us up from the hotel, took us to the helipad (the facility was fairly new and modern). They did a safety briefing. The staff made us feel very...More

Amazing experience. We were a group of 5 - one sat up next to the pilot (prime seat!) and then four of us sat facing each other in the back - each with a window seat. They do a figure 8 twice over, so everyone...More

We had the pleasure of booking a 15 minute Victoria Falls heli ride with Bonisair. This set us back 150 US dollars per person pus a 15 $ government fee, but was absolutely stunning. We were picked up promptly at the pre-arranged time and driven...More

Good preinstructions before take off, and a good pilot as well. The most fantastic panorama over the falls - circling in 8 figure allowing everyone to have good sights and pictures 12-15 minutes is quite sufficient
