Bonisair Helicopters and Steenbok Safari

We are back from a 4 days stay in Vic Falls and wanted to share some infos we have not previously found on Tripadvisor.

First and foremost we wanted to inform you that there are 2 helicopter operators in Vic Falls:

Shearwater and Bonisair. The later doesn't have a listing here, neither can you google it. We booked them over Zimbabwe Travel Service. They charge the same rate as Shearwater (125 US$ + 10$ park fee pp), but us a smaller helicopter, so that everybody gets a window seat. Highly recommended. I only got a cell phone number +263712212002 .

The other thing we would highly recommend is a trip to Chobe National Park in Botswana. We got a very good tip here on tripadvisor to use Steenbok Safari which is located in Kasane, Botswana. They offered us a private day trip to Chobe (safari vehicle and boat safari) at a very competitive price. Contact over the listing on tripadvisor:

I'm glad you enjoyed your trip. We also used Steenbok and Moabi was excellent. Our jeep and boat had the just the two of us while all the other operators had dozen (s). Great trip.

Can you get a helicopter out of Kasane to fly over to Vic falls or is it too far?

Also, how long does it take to clear customs from Botswana to Zim?

We are going in Sept and are trying to work out if it is worth going to Zim for a few days or can we fly over the falls instead.

The flight over the Falls is a must do, but you can only get that in Victoria Falls. The aerial view is just amazing, you won't regret doing this activity! You should also visit the actual Falls aswell, you can go with a guide or you can go alone but the guided tour is the best.

As for clearance at the border, it depends if the border is busy, but its only a matter of minutes. If you want to travel to Vic Falls, i recomend you use Africa Travel Tours, they will look after you all the way from Botswana to Zim. They will also assist you with all the necessary travel arrangements and activities. I can guarantee you A class service!! Their email address is reservations@africatravelvicfalls.com
