Taking to the skies above Cape Town in South Africa on a beautiful clear afternoon is one of the best ways to explore the city. In just 12 minutes your helicopter is expertly piloted high above the city, giving you a birds-eye-view of the main landmarks: Table Mountain wrapping itself around the city bowl, Robben Island in the distant haze of Table Bay, the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront dominating the harbour, and the Twelve Apostles bouncing down the peninsular towards Cape Point.

For those who are short on time, there is no better way to experience the city! In just 24 hours you could climb Table Mountain, explore the historic company gardens and take the helicopter ride over the city – touching down in time for a sundowner and evening meal at the V&A waterfront.
