Take the 15 minute ride. Totally worth $175pp to see these magnificent falls. The company will pick you up and drop you off at your hotel. Each person in the helicopter has a good seat. Only 6 people can fit...2 up front with the pilot...More

I was fairly warned that no seat is guaranteed. However, I didn't expect the rear middle seat to be as bad as it was. The front seat next to the pilot is the only seat to capture good photos but the other window seats are...More

What a breathtaking experience. We did the 20 minute tour. The pilot was very well spoken and informative. The ride through the gorge was exhilarating. The pilot pointed out elephants and buffalo from the helicopter. It is on the pricey side.

I think a helicopter ride over Victoria Falls is a must-do and totally worth it. We visited the area during low water season (October) and still loved the falls. It's actually easier to see as there isn't as much mist. (Tip: a visit from both...More

We took the 20 minute flight. It was something out of an IMAX movie, diving down into the gorge below the Livingstone Bridge, canyoning via helicopter, then pulling up steeply to re-engage with up-river views and the magnificence of the Victoria Falls.
