Activity description

What could be more thrilling than flying over the majestic Victoria Falls! Your bird's eye view will give you an exceptional vantage point of the Falls and all the beauty it has to offer.

Bell helicopters are the recognised world leaders in the helicopter industry and their aircraft are noted for their reliability. These helicopters are maintained to the highest industry standards as specified by the manufacturers Bell Textron in conjunction with the South African Maintenance Organisation and the Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe.

Flight of Angels: approx. 12-13 minutes
Experience the ‘Flight of Angels’ perspective first hand. Coined by David Livingstone when he first documented discovering the Falls; “a sight so wonderful that Angels must have gazed down on it in flight.”

After take-off, the helicopter will turn towards the magnificent Victoria Falls, your pilot will fly circuits over the Falls in both directions giving you the best viewing and photographic opportunities.

A trip upriver and back over the Zambezi National Park completes your flight. 

Zambezi Spectacular: 25 minutes
Treat yourself to an unbelievable once-in-a-lifetime flight where you will truly appreciate the mighty Victoria Falls and surrounding area.

After a gentle take off from the helipad, you will fly out over the Falls where you'll have the most incredible viewing and photographic opportunity of this World Heritage Site. Continuing your flight downstream over the Batoka Gorge, experience the natural beauty of this awe-inspiring dramatic feature, following the mighty Zambezi as it carves its way between steep cliffs.

As you head back from the Batoka Gorges, taking a last glimpse of the falls, you'll fly over the long island on the upper Zambezi towards the National Park, home to a wide variety of wildlife species. This is an amazing opportunity to view game from the air in this vast National Park, as well as along the banks of the upper Zambezi River. There is an opportunity to spot elephants, hippos, crocodiles, buffaloes, giraffes, kudu and many more as you head back to the helipad.

This is an amazing 3 in 1 flight, making it an experience of a lifetime.
