Helicopter Rides, Cape Town
Your Cape Town helicopter tour begins with a complimentary pick-up service from your guesthouse or hotel accommodation within Cape Town and its surrounds. Alternatively, you can meet directly at the V&A Waterfront Helipad, allowing 15 to 20 minutes before commencing your scheduled helicopter ride for a preflight safety briefing.
A panoramic view of Table Mountain marks the start of your 25-minute journey, as you head towards South Africa’s seventh-largest stadium. Fly with the birds and peer inside the Cape Town Stadium, previous host to the FIFA World Cup in 2010. Capture a couple of your own iconic Cape Town images before moving onto the next sights.
Meander down the coast following the cold current of the Atlantic ocean, as you begin to pass Signal Hill and make your way to the popular Blue Flag beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay. These beaches, lined with their tall palm trees, stretch pristinely alongside the many restaurants and luxurious homes of the area.
Keep an eye out for the dazzlingly bright white 12 Apostles Hotel & Spa, nestled into the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range. Count each of the twelve aptly named buttresses for yourself in flight, as you make your way over the Mountain Range and onto the famed Hout Bay, where the scenery contrasts ever more between the lush, green landscape and azure Atlantic ocean. Flip over Muizenberg Beach, littered with its colourful beach huts and surfers catching the warm swell of the Indian ocean.
Trace momentarily along the scenic Chapman’s Peak drive and enjoy the majestic Table Mountain Range from inland, as the breathtaking Constantia Valley comes into view. Spot a few of the well-known manicured vineyards and add them to your ‘must do’ list before landing back in Cape Town where you can enjoy an afternoon of shopping at the V&A Waterfront or use your complimentary hop-on-hop-off bus ticket to soak up the atmosphere a little closer to the ground.
