Customer Reviews

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

Good day, We absolutely LOVED the helicopter flight - the best best part was flying in the gorge. Unfortunately it is very expensive and we were charged in USD. As South Africans we earn our salaries in Rand and to pay R15 000 for a helicopter flight is very very expensive so we are not sure if we will ever be able to afford it again. Kind regards Marika Mattheus - Marika Mattheus

Batoka failed to inform us that they had changed the flight and pick up times independantly - without even giving notice us! After waiting for the pick up with no show, we were forced to call them just to find out about this incident! This is especially fatal, as we had already prepaid the whole flight beforehand. Only after several times of insisting by us their mistake was compensated by extension of the originally booked flight at no charge. The flight itself was really good. - Axel Engelhardt
