Shearwater Helicopter ride was imply the best way to view the Falls. From our transfer from our hotel, to upgrading our flight to a 25 minute option everything was done seamlessly. The flight itself with our pilot (Lizzy) was simply awesome. You get an all round aerial view of the Vic Falls and the many Zambezi river meanders and gorges,... More

Shearwater are organised and professional, so one feels in safe hands the whole time. The pilot does four loops over the falls, so people on both sides of the helicopter get to have a good view of the falls. It gives you a perspective on how huge the Zambezi river is when it gets to the falls and how long... More

The staff at the flight pad are so helpful that they have you up and flying before you can blink an eye. They weigh you first, give you a short informational briefing, then load you up while recording everything for posterity. The pilot circles the Falls so that each passenger gets just the right view for pictures. It is an... More

We did the short 10-15 minute ride as the longer one was pretty expensive. Very happy with the ride, although our booked time kept getting pushed back initially because of weather, then for whatever reason... Great views and a must do if visiting Vic Falls, the only way to really capture the sheer beauty of the falls.

We took the helicopter ride as one of us had a cold and did not want to get wet. It was a good decision. Expensive but well worth it. There were only two of us in the little helicopter, apart from the pilot, and we had 15 minutes of glorious views of the falls plus a bird's eye view of... More

we are only 3 on the helicopter so you have a very broad view compared to other helicopter companies. marvellous view on the helicopter, it is really a MUST DO in vic falls cause vic fall is 1.7km and when you are on the land it is alwasy foggy you barely see anything. Helicopter gives you a totally different view.

The helicopter ride was just fantastic. The pilot gave both sides a chance to see the sights. And what wonderful sights they were. The Falls and the gorge just breathtaking. I would recommend it to everyone

Although the flight was relatively expensive and short, it was a memorable experience, not to be missed. The views over and down to the falls illustrated just how immense and powerful they are. The flight did not need a running commentary as the Falls speak for themselves. The helicopter ground staff explained very clearly what we could expect and we... More

The helicopter flight over Victoria Falls was the marzipan and icing on the cake to my visit. The flight company were first class professionals, providing a spectucular view of the falls and surrounding areas. If you visit the falls, do not leave without this experience! The short flight is 12-15 minutes was perfect to quench my thirst.
