Customer Reviews

We had a really fabulous experience. Was fantastic. Thanks - Okke Pik

Worst experience ever. I booked this helicopter flight for the 10 people in our group 5 months in advance and reconfirmed it a week prior to our arrival. We arrived 20 minutes early. They took two sets of 3 people out ( total of 6), but we had paid for a 22 minute flight (which I explained upon arrival), but the receipt said 15 minutes.. When I caught the mistake they said they would radio the pilots to correct the error.. They flights returned in 17 minutes.. Then they said they could not take the other passengers out for another 1 1/2 hrs because they had to deal with a private transport.. I paid cash for the entire group upon arrival - they never bothered to tell me that they would not honor my reservation for the full group as they only had time for 6... They wanted us to wait another 1 1/2 hrs and REFUSED to give me the cash back that I had just paid them! After a 20 minute conversation that the person on the desk had with a "remote" manager - who was actually on the premises but refused to meet with us.. They gave me some cash back.. Crazy experience.. I would use Shearwater Adventures ... a much better choice. These guys are criminals. Kent Hedrick - Kent Hedrick

We were picked up at the appointed time and we had a fantastic helicopter ride (~22 minutes). The only downside was that the DVD of our flight experience was USD40 which was way too expensive. We would more likely have purchased it if it was half that price. - Lean Mei Mei

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
