A 40-minute drive north along the R27, or West Coast Road as it’s more commonly known, is all it takes for you to be whisked from the Cape Town city centre to the only drop zone serving South Africa’s tourism capital, boasting one of the best views in the world from altitude.
On the way up in the aircraft, the view is breath taking. To the South, the Mother City lies sandwiched between towering Table Mountain and bustling Table Bay harbour. Further to the south, and to the far side of the mountain, lies False Bay, Hout Bay and the splendour of the South Peninsula as far as Cape Point. To the West, you will spot Robben Island Cape Town’s own Alcatraz – and the Atlantic breaking on the beautiful Cape West Coast, as famous for its icy water temperature as its mouthwatering crayfish. To the North, the Langebaan lagoon, a great kite surfing and windsurfing venue.
