Cape Town by helicopter wow what a day that was, after having lived here for the last 8 to 9 years I finally got the chance to go to the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront climb aboard a helicopter and go for a spin.
Unfortunately the spin was rather short due to the fact that Parliament was opening and if we’d stayed up any longer they were threatening to shoot us down over security concerns. Go figure, these are the people that we voted into power skin of tourists in a helicopter, a well I suppose there are another spent anywhere.
Most probably the one aspect that has kept me from doing it for all this time is the price, I could never justify it. But now I feel a bit humbled as for nine years I have been wrong. It is now my goal to get my whole family on board and show them the area we live in from a completely different angle.
This is just a quick video of what I experienced that there a superb and I mean it superb opportunity to see the city of Cape Town from a completely different angle. Very highly recommended should you be looking for something completely different to do while in town.
The helipad is very centrally located not far from all Cape Town hotels, the only time they do not fly is obviously when it is overcast and rainy as well as when it was very windy. You have about four or five options as far as operators are concerned all or exceptionally good in terms of what the offer and pricing. The company briefly with was NAC, of whom I can highly recommend.
My only disappointment of the day was that the windows from which I was taking the video footage from all seem to be very very scratched hence the video is not the clearest I’ve ever taken.
