Many born and raised Capetonians have never seen what the other side of the world-famous mountain has to offer. In fact, some of the best Instagram pics can be found between the Chapman’s Peak and False Bay bend. Photographers seem to have a bird’s-eye view of the Cape’s prettiest places, and grabbing one of these shots is a lot easier than you think.
Is it a bird? Is it a drone? No, it’s a helicopter ride. Catch a ride on the city’s number-one rated helicopter company for priceless views and a once-in-a-lifetime experience with Cape Town Helicopters.
From sleepy shipwrecks to beaches you’ve never heard of, you’ll have a spectacular view of every possible Instagrammable site around the beautiful Cape Town on the Two Oceans and Full Peninsula flights. You’ll also get a free site-seeing bus ticket with your booking, so you can capture some close-ups on the ground.
“An amazing experience! The views from above are just breathtaking. The coastline is beautiful and the ocean is almost crystal clear in some areas,” says Rene in a review of Cape Town Helicopters on TripAdvisor.

What you’re getting here is an all-angle view of Table Mountain.
