What To Expect

Head for the V&A Waterfront in central Cape Town to climb aboard a private helicopter tour at the V&A’s own helipad. As the flight begins, take in the expanding view of the city around you.

Fly along the Atlantic coastline, flanked by the Twelve Apostles mountains. Soar around Karbonkelberg Mountain and watch the terrain below you change from beaches to rocks and hidden bays as you head for the Cape Point Nature Reserve. The hills are covered with abundant plants and wildlife, and then at the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point those hills give way to rugged and rocky cliffs. Pass over the Cape Point lighthhouse and see how the ocean waves batter the rocks below.

From there, begin heading back up the peninsula toward Simon’s Town, an historic South African naval base. Nearby is Boulders Beach, with its resident colony of African penguins — keep your eye out for them as you fly overhead. Continue to the seaside resort communities of Muizenberg and Fish Hoek, and the dramatic scenery of False Bay.

Make your way back to Cape Town on the other side of the mountains for a different view than you had at the start of the trip. Pass over Constantia vineyards before alighting once again at the V&A Waterfront helipad.

My wife requested that we do this trip and although I am quite scared of heights I thoroughly enjoyed the flight. We flew around the back of Table Mountain to Cape Point and then back to Cape Town enjoying the view of some of the most wonderful coastline in the World. This was truly a wonderful experience and I am so glad we got to enjoy it.

Godfrey R, Nov 2014
We really enjoyed the flight - it really was disappointing that the weather wasn't great but our pilot was fantastic. Because of the high wind we couldn't do the full peninsula.
The weather was not very good, it...
Margarida R, Mar 2014
The weather was not very good, it was windy and cloudy, and we didn't see what it was supposed to.
After a couple days of overcast...

After a couple days of overcast skies and rain, we finally got a clear and sunny day for our helicopter flight. The 45 minute scenic flight was fantastic. I got the tour for Colleen as a Christmas present to enjoy at the end of our 30 day cruise. Cape Town and area are beautiful and lively. The flight was well organized and operated by Cape Town Helicopters. We took off on time and did a circle of the cape area. The pilot was informative and friendly. We took lots of pictures and felt that the longer flight was good value for a special day in Cape Town.
Ein unbedingtes muss,...
