Let’s be honest, Cape Town certainly has no shortage of incredible viewing points, but there is no view of the Mother City quite like the view from the top. A private helicopter flight allows you to experience it in the most exclusive and luxurious way. Not only do you get to see the Mother City from way up high in your private state of the art helicopter, but you get to wine and dine at one of Cape Town’s most unique and elite Wine Estates.

Why not indulge in a sunset yachting trip to Clifton’s 4th beach and watch the sun go down over the Mother City while sipping on a divine cocktail? Or explore the vibrant False Bay on a private yachting trip jam-packed with snorkelling, jet skis, ocean swimming and so much more?
