Customer Reviews

A must do when in Livingstone. The views amazIng and the low level right through gorge breathtaking. We use a 4 seater from Batoka. The only view with proper photography possibilities is the co pilot seat. Some good vision from rear 2 window seats. The middle sart should be not be charged full price. No real view as pilot section is a cage and view is obstructed all round. Thought smaller chopper would be better.. But maybe larger aircraft maybe better. Th $40 video is not worth it. It is standard footage with inserts of views of passengers in the aircraft. we got a video from the front seat passenger it was awesome. - Arun K

It was an amazing experience. Definitively the 22 min flight with the flight through the gorge makes a huge difference. It was the more exciting part. - Jaime Nava

Amazing, the best trip ever - Robson Gouveia

I cannot recommend this trip more - it was fabulous! I opted for the medium flight option which included a swooping turn from the Falls (which from the air are simply breathtaking) into the Zambezi gorge just metres above the water. Worth every single penny! - Sarah Woodcock

The flight was very good and the pilot was great. But we felt the helicopter was very cramped in the back as my wife was in the middle and had difficulty with the sightseeing. (4 people in the back) - Greg Trudgeon
