Cape Town is a jaw-droppingly beautiful city, no matter from which vantage point. There are, however, distinct plusses to hopping in a helicopter and taking in her scenery, as the crow flies. Our Helicopter Adventures allow our guests to escape the crowds, maximize exploring time, land in uncharted territory and experience trails few get to access.

Top three reasons to book our Escape+Explore Helicopter Adventures: 

1) Remote landing spots either pioneered or exclusive to Escape+Explore.

2) Multidrop helicopter adventure days with complete flexibility to change the day as you go.

3) Seamless on the ground adventure crew ready and waiting at each landing spot.

We aim to explore the highlights of the Cape Peninsula by combining the virtues of a helicopter with those of our intuitive, knowledgeable Adventure Guides. We start by taking in the city from a bird’s eye perspective before dropping down to ground zero to explore some of our favourite places (also loved by locals), in the Cape. We offer two by-design helicopter adventure products. Helicopter seats four passengers plus the pilot ensuring everyone gets a window seat.


Our first and most popular Helicopter Adventure is the Cape Peninsula Spectacular

Our scenic Helicopter Adventure transfer whisks you from Cape Town to charming Simon’s Town. Explore with Penguins – Stand Up Paddle, kayak or, take an interpretive conservation walk near iconic Boulders Beach. Next, we head to Cape Point, where we hike the coast. Here, it’s all about shipwrecks, whales, white sand and wildlife. Our appetites awakened, we enjoy a delicious lunch at Crofters Kitchen with Chef Nicky Gibbs. Stretching legs, we explore Noordhoek Farm Village with a Cheeky ‘Kick Ass’Ice Cream or Coffee. The afternoon takes on a more leisurely pace as we take a drive along Cape Town’s most scenic coastal road, Chapman’s Peak Drive, replete with 144 curves. We end the day off with the ‘lekker’ local South African tradition of sundowners. Cheers!
