Activity description

If you are short on time but still want to have an amazing and unique view of the Atlantic Coast and Cape Town, this 20-minute scenic helicopter flight is THE option for you! Discover one of South Africa's most beautiful regions from above! 

The 'Atlantic Coast Scenic Helicopter Flight' is a short city flight that is ideal if you are looking for a helicopter tour that covers the highlights of Cape Town. During this flight around the city and the surrounding coast, you'll have an incredible panoramic perspective only available to a select few!

All passengers will fly aboard a Robinson R44 helicopter with a capacity of 1-3 people or an Airbus H120 with a 4-6 passenger capacity. Your unique experience begins after meeting your certified pilot at the meeting point, where you will board the helicopter. Then, the adventure truly begins! Soon, you'll be soaring above Cape Town and enjoying the thrill of it all. 

Starting on the Atlantic Coastline you'll fly near world-renowned locations such as the Cape Town Stadium, the 4 Beaches of Clifton, Camps Bay, and the Twelve Apostles. On the way back, you will swing around Karbonkelberg and back over the mountainous peninsula, capturing stunning views of Hout and Camps Bay, finishing with a panoramic view of the stunning Table Mountain as you prepare yourself to land.

For amazing photographs, it is recommended that passengers wear darker-coloured clothing, as lighter clothing can reflect inside the windows and spoil an otherwise incredible shot.

Take sightseeing to the next level and book this unforgettable 20-minute helicopter tour of Cape Town!

It was all well organized and fast. We thought the pilot was super nice, he showed us the most beautiful places. Apart from my wedding, this was the best experience ever! Seeing my favorite city in Africa from above is surreal! Table Mountain, Lions Head, Chapman's Peak, we saw them all from above. Awesome! I cried with joy the entire flight. Thank you very much for this wonderful experience, I can recommend it to everyone!

Tolle Erfahrung, Kapstadt einmal von oben zu sehen! Spektakulär. Auch wenn die Zeit viel viel zu kurz ist und es dafür ganz schön teuer ist…

Der 20-minütige Flug war hervorragend organisiert von der Abholung bis hin zur Rückfahrt mit dem Transfer. Die Zeit im Helikopter ist sehr schnell vorbei gegangen weil es einfach so atemberaubend war.
