Cape Photographic Safari

Rates subject to increase on 1 September 2024

The Cape Photographic Safari is a premium experience in the collection.

This experience is tailor-made to suit the photographer. We offer lots of guidance, and the routing and accommodation are tailored to the specific customer.

Cape Town has so much natural beauty that needs to be discovered and experienced. With a helicopter and guide at your disposal, provides a “once in a lifetime opportunity” to capture amazing landscapes.

We suggest regions such as Cederberg, West Coast and Agulhas but are able to fly to any destination in South Africa should the budget permit.

ONE-day up to FIVE-day tour options. We allocate a photo-friendly helicopter, your own pilot, and a local photographer to guide you. We arrange the fuel in remote places, overnight unique accommodation (don’t underestimate the value of the overnighting for photo opportunities) and facilitate a photographic safari to provide memories that will last a lifetime. The photos below provide a glimpse of the natural beauty the Cape has to offer. Allow us to be the catalyst to make your photo dream come true.

Important Information

Check In Time

Please check in 20-30 minutes prior to your scheduled Take Off time. This will allow enough time for us to take weights, conduct a safety briefing and issue tickets. After this has been conducted you can relax on the viewing deck and take some great pre-flight pictures and enjoy the atmosphere.

Best Pictures

For the best pictures we recommend that you wear darker coloured clothing as whites reflect off the inside of the windows and can spoil that epic shot.


Please be aware that seating allocation on all our sharing flights are done according to weight and balance which is done during your safety briefing and ticketing. Should you want to choose your own seats you can book an Exclusive Flight at the cost of one additional seat and you are guaranteed the ‘best seats in the house.


All flights are weather dependent. Should the conditions not be ideal for flying we will try to reschedule to the next best available flight window. Note that the temperature in the sky is exactly the same as on the ground in case you are wondering what to wear.
