Cape Town Helicopter Photography Session

Get strapped in and capture Cape Town from the sky during this unforgettable 24 minute aerial photography experience.

If you think Cape Town looks good from the ground, you should see it from the sky! This unforgettable aerial photography experience will give you the opportunity to capture Cape Town’s beauty from the unique vantage point of a helicopter, accompanied at all times by an experienced instructor who'll help you get the most out of your adventure.

Your guide for this aerial adventure is Grant, a veteran of aerial photography, and a Cape Town native who knows how best to capture his vibrant home city through the lens of a camera. You’ll meet him at Cape Town International Airport. He’ll give you a safety briefing, and you will discuss the route plan, camera techniques, and potential subjects of interest. Once the formalities are out of the way, the fun can really begin. You'll be strapped securely into the helicopter. The front door is removed to allow you to get the perfect shot, all while attached to the safety of the aircraft. You’ll never forget the feeling as you watch Cape Town shrink below you, and the thrill of capturing the incredible view on camera. The route will be tailored to suit your individual preferences, so if there’s something you particularly want to see, you can make sure it’s worked into the journey. Just try not to make your friends too jealous with your once-in-a-lifetime shots, or the story of how you flew over Cape Town! Once you’re back on the ground, you’ll enjoy some light refreshments while you and Grant debrief.

The Cape Town helicopter photography session is an unmissable experience for locals and tourists alike, and makes a great gift for the photographer in your life or anyone who just wants to see Cape Town like they’ve never seen it before!
