Pick Up is at your centrally located Victoria Falls Hotel

This activity will end right where it started.
Your Victoria Falls helicopter tour kicks off with pick up from minibus pickup from your Victoria Falls hotel. You’ll head out to a local helipad where you’ll receive a safety briefing before taking off in a glass-sided, 10-seater helicopter for this incredible African experience.
You’ll get a bird’s eye view of the notorious Zambezi River, vast gorges that divide Zambia from Zimbabwe, and of course, the stunning Victoria Falls—one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Not only is this one of the largest waterfalls on the planet—it’s also one of the most spectacular. Your expert pilot will take you on a figure-eight loop over the falls to insure picture-perfect views for all. Since the helicopter boasts glass sides, even passengers without a window seat are guaranteed unobstructed views.
After 13-minutes touring the skies you’ll head back to the helipad where your friendly pilot will present you with a video and photos of this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The ride is unique and wonderful. The staff is professional, courteous and safety conscious. The sales pitch afterwards was standard pitching and thankfully not high pressure. I took the short version of the trip and wish I had taken the longer one.

The trip itself was great but we were very annoyed that having paid 150 up front per person, we suddenly had to pay 12 each in cash when we got to the helipad. It's a total rip off. We don't even really know what it was for. Nowhere in the booking confirmation does this charge appear as a non inclusive I have subsequently written to Thompsons in South Africa who are the local agents and they have not even dignified me with a response. So beware! The tour you think you are paying 150 for is actually 162.

We enjoyed a great trip hovering over Victoria Falls....this is a must do activity for any visitor to Vic Falls. Our very friendly driver picked us up on time from our hotel and we were then taken through a safety briefing. Our pilot handled the helicopter with confidence and soon the 13 minute flight came to an end. The figure-of-eight flight path allows one to capture memorable pictures of this natural wonder of the world. We highly recommend this tour.
