Cape Town From The Air

I took a private helicopter tour of Cape Town with NAC Helicopters and it was, to say the very least, truly unforgettable.

Two of my favourite camera comrades in tow – Instagrammers Mike Eloff and Alfred Thorpe – we pointed the vehicle’s nose towards Cape Point Ostrich Farm. Our batteries and excitement fully charged, we waited patently for our ride.

I am going to write more about the farm in the #TuesdayTravelStories soon, but in the meantime: some pictures of  these large flightless birds loving lenses and (my) lenses loving children.

My pictures don’t do the views justice at all. I struggled with reflections and focus. You see, my jaw was down to the ground for most of the flight.

I also screamed. A lot.

This is definitely one of the most inspiring Cape Peninsula tours I know.  Add it to your list of ‘must-do-in-the-Mother-City’, I’m convinced you won’t regret it for a second.

NAC Helicopters supports the Mali Elephant Project and donates R90 per helicopter booking to the Wilderness Foundation.
