Helicopter Flight - Robben Island - 18mins

Explore an important part of South Africa’s history while surveying stunning scenery, also view stunning views of Table Mountain.

Taking off from the V&A Waterfront, you’ll hover over the harbour for a moment, drinking in Green Point and the Cape Town cityscape. Below you, the deep blues and greens of the Atlantic Ocean stretch to the horizon, interrupted only by the white crest of a wave or the occasional pod of dolphins. As you move further away from the Cape Peninsula, Robben Island comes into view in front of you.

You dip towards the island, sweeping over its diverse collection of fauna and flora as you enjoy an aerial view of the buildings and importantly, the prison where Nelson Mandela and other freedom fighters were imprisoned before you turn to face the Cape Peninsula again. On your return flight, you’ll be greeted by the full splendour of Table Mountain as you travel along the pristine Blouberg coastline back towards the City Bowl.
