We booked a 25 minute flight over Victoria Falls and the National Park to celebrate my birthday. There is a shorter and cheaper option that lasts 12-15 minutes. From being collected at our hotel, the greeting and preparation before the flight was excellent. As you would imagine the flight itself was excellent, what i particular liked was that we flew around the falls from both directions so that everyone in the helicopter (3 of us plus the pilot) was able to get great views of the falls and take as many pictures as we wanted. Simply an amazing way to view Victoria Falls. Great fun and well worth the expense for the views and sights you see.

If you’re like me and want to see places from above you gotta do a helicopter flight. I’d arrived into Zimbabwe about 11am booked this tour through Wild Horizons locates cnr Fox & Parkway Rd & by 2pm I was being picked up for my flight. Took the 12 min flight which was fine you get offered to upgrade while there but I was hayjust to see the Falls although they weren’t in full capacity in October. They weigh you with all your belongings & all up from being picked up from our hotel to return was about an hour. It was on my to do list while in Victoria Falls so tick done !

Many thanks for taking the time to review your Flight of Angels encounter. It's good to learn that it's now out of your bucket list! The Flight of Angels is our flagship experience and the most popular of all our flight options. The turn-around as you rightfully put it is one hour from the time we pick the guest from the hotel to the time we drop them off. We also have a BOOK NOW, FLY NOW options for last-minute bookings.

We took the Flight of Angels the day after visiting the Vic Falls National Park on the ground so it helps to already have a sense of the geography. Our Lodge was not happy to rely on the pick up service so took us to the heliport in good time for our booked flight. On arrival we paid the $15 USD per person park entrance fee. They did not take credit cards but fortunately we had enough SA Rand left over. We were weighed, briefed and, after a short wait, boarded the helicopter. There were four seats in the back and one next to the pilot so everyone in our group of four got a good view. We were all given headsets but these were essentially for noise reduction...there was no in flight commentary which was slightly disappointing but it does allow you to absorb the magnificent view uninterrupted. We only did the short 13 min flight but that was sufficient for a figure of eight both ways over the falls and short hop upstream before landing. There was no sick inducing movements! After landing you are shown a video and some photos which you can buy on a memory stick for £50 USD. It all felt very professional and well organised. Glad we did it.

Many thanks for taking the time to review your flight experience. We are happy to advise that guests can use their credit cards to pay government fees. It's so unfortunate that the voice-over couldn't play on your flight but we do have pre-recorded voice-over audio in-flight. This will be rectified.

Although this 15-18 min. flight is $165 USD it is worth going on to get perspective on just how large an area is covered and the views of the gorge show why it is one natural wonders of the world. The fight itself was calm and smooth everyone onboard gets great views of falls and the Zambezi river. I would recommend taking a trip if you can afford it
