Treat yourself - yes it's approx £150 for a quarter of a n hour, but you'll never see anything like it again. Collected and returned to hotel, all quite seamlessly.

This tour is a must if you visit Vic Falls. It gives a very different and dramatic perspective to the view of the Falls . We took the 15 minute trip which was adequate but seemed over too soon ! The pilot was helpful and...More

A great trip, fantastic vie of the falls, and although the duration of the trip does not sound long there was more than enough time to view the falls and the river, Jeremy

The falls were in full flow thanks to the recent rains, but you can't get away from the fact that you can only see one third of the falls from the Zambian side. The helicopter flight is therefore a brilliant way to see their full...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
