We have a wide range of Cape Town tours that can be customized based on couples' or special family occasions needs. You can take a helicopter tour to the Cape Winelands, Cape of Good Hope, Game Reserve safaris, and so many more. Let's explore a few.

Explore the Atlantic coastline

At the V&A Waterfront, where your helicopter flight begins, you will be treated to breathtaking vistas of Cape Town and its surroundings. You'll get a bird's eye perspective of the Cape Town stadium, which was constructed for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. As you start to ascend, the well-known Table Mountain welcomes you, demonstrating why it is one of the Seven Wonders of the World through its breathtaking natural beauty.

Your voyage will take you along the Atlantic Ocean's coast, giving you a fresh perspective of the huge, deep blue waters that reach out in all directions. The stunning white beaches of Sea Point, Camps Bay, Clifton, Bakoven, Llandudno, and Hout Bay will catch your eye as you soar above this coastline. You'll be breathless as you pass the distinct 18 peaks of the Twelve Apostles mountain range.

On your flight, you’ll travel all the way to Hout Bay where you might observe seals lounging on Seal Island. On your way back from Hout Bay, you'll get to take in the breathtaking scenery once more.

Soar over Robben Island from the Sky

Your incredible experience begins at the V&A Waterfront, where you'll board a helicopter and catch breathtaking views of the Cape Town skyline. You'll start to see the Atlantic Ocean open up beneath you as your journey progresses, with beautiful blues and greens and occasional dolphins or whales. The ocean's width will astound you, and you'll marvel at the horizon.

On your flight out into the Atlantic Ocean, you'll spot a tiny green patch of land before it begins to grow as you approach it. This magnificent island, known as Robben Island, is notorious due to its infamous past and is home to a wide diversity of flora and fauna. Many notable and powerful people, including Nelson Mandela and numerous other freedom fighters, were detained on this Island during the Apartheid era. The Island is a magnificent site to visit, measuring about 3.3 kilometers in length and 1.9 kilometers in width. You can see the prison, the rich fauna, and the wild oceans that surround it from above.

You'll fly over the stunning Blouberg coastline on your return journey, which is ideal for swimming and kiteboarding due to its favorable conditions.

Discover the most Southern-West Tip of Africa in a Helicopter

Take off from the V&A Waterfront and ride in a helicopter across the energetic city of Cape Town while admiring the breathtaking sights of the urban environment. As your flight takes you along the gorgeous Atlantic coastline, take in the beauty of Table Mountain and the Twelve Apostles Mountain range.

You will experience the Cape Peninsula at its finest as you travel along the Atlantic coast and enjoy its many stunning white beaches. You'll be blown away by the amazing scenery of mountainous regions with architecturally pleasing houses that lay on their feet. In the distance, you'll enjoy the vast expanse of the ocean occasionally dotted with dolphins and whales.

As you approach the tip of the Cape Peninsula, Cape Point—a nature reserve designated a natural World Heritage site—you’ll witness the most breathtaking views of the Atlantic coastline with the peninsula projecting out into the sea. As you return, your flight changes course as you cross over to the other edge of the peninsula. Here you’ll enjoy the sight of the beautiful warm beaches of Simons Town, Fish Hoek, and Muizenberg as you fly along this coastline. As you fly inland, breathtaking views of the Constantia wine regions will suddenly appear.

Cape Winelands Helicopter flights

Consider traveling between vineyards in a helicopter while sipping delicious wines. Imagine seeing the renowned wine farms of Cape Town both on the ground and in the air. From Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope to our magnificent valleys and other natural treasures. Get an overhead, 360-degree perspective with your own privately chartered helicopter in style.

On your way to one of our many wine estates, you may appreciate the expansive vistas from the air. And spend a half-day browsing, sampling, and indulging in delectable cuisine and acclaimed wines in opulent settings. Cape Town is one of the oldest wine-producing regions in Southern Africa and offers a selection of unmatched wines, exquisite dining experiences in the wine country, and wine tasting in some of the world's most picturesque valleys.

You can opt to jump from wine farm to wine farm and take part in a wine-tasting tour fit for royalty, or you can stay in the air for a sightseeing trip that will do justice to the gorgeous countryside surrounding Stellenbosch, Franschoek, Paarl, and Constantia.
