On the following page we would like to provide you with more detailed information on our Cape Town Helicopter Tours in South Africa. A very important point you should keep in mind is that all our flight tours are subject to change or be delayed due to weather conditions. Nobody would enjoy Table Mountain covered in fog or a bumpy helicopter flight crossing the Atlantic Coast in stormy weather! Forest fires as well as no-fly areas can lead to changes in our flight routes.
