Robben Island – a beacon of political and historical significance – is a city must-see, but it can be a bit of a mission if a boat trip is not quite your vibe or if your time for seeing this site is limited.
Say hello, and hop on, for Cape Town Helicopters’ Robben Island Scenic Flight for a magical, bird’s-eye view of this important mass of land, just off the coast. Also take perspective-changing views of Table Mountain, Table Bay and the city, in about 20 minutes. What’s more, all Cape Town Helicopters pilots have also qualified as tour guides, which means the flip will be as informative as fun.
And it’s certainly not just for tourists, as Iqeraam – a local – pointed out in a review of Cape Town Helicopters on TripAdvisor: “As native Capetonians, this trip gave us a really nice perspective of our city and its beauty.”
A MEMORABLE FAMILY EXPERIENCE
The entire family can experience the Robben Island Scenic Flight – kids under 8 can fly for half-price if accompanied by two full paying adults. There's also a complimentary collection service within the CBD, so making your way to your flight is easy and hassle-free when you fly with Cape Town Helicopters.
This unrivalled experience offers a once-in-a-lifetime trip on a helicopter, while you get a magnificent look at a landmark of great importance in South Africa. It’s also a more practical way for visitors who have limited time to spend in Cape Town to still get to experience this site.
“It was a thrilling experience, never to be forgotten. We took many photos of the shore, Table Mountain and Robben Island from all different angles. We felt safe, secure and would repeat the helicopter ride over and over again!” says Fernfield about Cape Town Helicopters on TripAdvisor.
Top tip: Select the option to fly “exclusive” upon checkout if a private flight (no other passengers) is what you prefer.
Note: The helicopter does not land on Robben Island. With prior arrangement, landing on Robben island can be organised, but the cost rises exponentially when you touch down.
