It's time to dust off your travel bucket list with the Shearwater Helicopter Experience. There's no better way to see the amazing Victoria Falls than from the air, but it’s not just the Falls that you'll see: landscapes, wildlife, and much more.

There are two flight options for this activity


 12-13 minutes

Named after a quote by famous explorer David Livingstone, “Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by Angels in their flight.” This tour starts after take-off and heads straight to the falls. Flying over the Falls gives you an excellent view of one of Africa's most notable natural wonders. Fly upstream where you can spot game in the Zambezi National Park


 25 minutes

In addition to what you would see on the Fight of Angels tour. This flight gives you the opportunity to witness all three states of the Zambezi: tranquil upper river, dramatic falls, and white-water rapids downriver.

The helicopters have specially designed bubble windows giving passengers the best views possible. They don't sell middle seats, so all travellers can enjoy their trip without interruption.

The helipad is close to town, and you’ll be flying over Victoria Falls on a thrilling helicopter experience within minutes of take-off
