Cape Town Heli adventures with Wilderness Touring

Your Guide to Africa

Wilderness Blogger


Wilderness Touring leads you to discover South Africa’s glorious Western Cape, with your specific needs in mind – all following our Wilderness ethos of sustainable conservation tourism. Private Journeys’ home base, Cape Town, is consistently voted one of the world’s top destinations, and offers visitors an ideal starting or ending point of an African safari.​


Enhancing our delivery, Cape Town Touring, in conjunction with Cape Town Helicopters, bring you a partnership launch offer not to be missed. We are thrilled to be able to indulge you in two limited, curated experiences, exclusive to Wilderness guests.



Discover the city as you’ve never seen it before. Hop on board as we take to the skies to experience the beauty of the mother city. At Cape Town Helicopters, sightseeing reaches new heights, in an unrivalled experience that is unimaginable from the ground.


Two Oceans Helicopter Flight, City Tour and Catamaran


​Collection from hotel and transfer to the Waterfront Hanger of Cape Town Helicopters. Depart on a scenic Two Oceans Helicopter Flight along the coast line (approx. 25 min flight). From here we continue in our touring vehicle to the Table Mountain’s Lower Cableway Station. 1 067m above sea level, Table Mountain affords bird’s-eye views of both the city and Peninsula, as you explore its summit. We return to the city via the old Cape Malay Quarter. 


After lunch, we continue for a walk through the Company Gardens, a fresh produce garden for ships and locals from the mid-17th century, and now home to the SA Museum, Houses of Parliament, National Gallery and St. George’s Cathedral. From there we drive to the Castle, South Africa’s oldest building, with its large collection of Old Cape paintings. We’ll take in the nearby Grand Parade, where Nelson Mandela addressed the nation on his release in 1990. Thereafter we return to the Waterfront where you will embark on a relaxing Catamaran Sunset Cruise, the perfect end to a day filled with highlights.

Cape Point Scenic Helicopter Flight, Millers Point forage & Picnic ending with a Cape Point Tour 


Collection from hotel and transfer to the Waterfront Hanger of Cape Town Helicopters. Depart on a scenic helicopter trip to the Cape of Good Hope. View the Cape Peninsula from all angles before flying along the Atlantic seaboard, around Cape Point toward Millers Point – a truly unforgettable experience. Here you will be met by your guide and will join a Seaside forage experience, where you will learn how to harvest various seaweeds, and have the opportunity to taste a spread of sustainable sea inspired delicacies.


Thereafter continue in the afternoon , in a touring vehicle, towards the Cape of Good Hope section of the Table Mountain National Park with its unique Cape fynbos vegetation and home to birds like African black oystercatchers and Cape sugarbirds as well as to very special fauna including Cape mountain zebra, bontebok (both endemic) and the charismatic Cape baboon.  Climb (or ride the world’s first environmentally friendly funicular) to the famous Cape Point Lighthouse to capture the magical vistas of False Bay.  


On the way back visit Boulders Beach to see the penguins, and then head home through the naval village of Simonstown and over scenic Boyes Drive, taking in the views of the fishing harbour at Kalk Bay and the seaside havens of St. James and Muizenberg.
