A city like Cape Town - with its infamous Table Mountain, sprawling city and breathtaking coast - can't truly be appreciated until you've seen it from a birds-eye view.
If there is one thing you splurge on while in Cape Town, make it a helicopter ride!
With several helicopter companies operating out of the V&A Waterfront you have plenty of options to choose from. Check out each operator's flight path (most are the same) and available times to see what works best for you. Don't forget to plan your ride for early morning or late afternoon, when the lighting is best (otherwise you could be stuck with the sun glaring on the helicopter window; which will make it hard to take pictures).
Regardless of what time of day you go, get ready for some of the most spectacular views you've ever seen..
