Cape Town is renowned for its incredible natural beauty: rocky cliffs give way to the crashing Atlantic Ocean; an ancient mountain now peeks out of the sea as world-famous Robben Island, where global icon Nelson Mandela was held prisoner. And two of the best ways of appreciating these sensational vistas are by air and motorbike.
In this 4-day adventure, you will get to know a slice of the Mother City known to only a few others. Don your leathers (or not) and get comfortable on a Harley-Davidson for a cruise along what is arguably one of the most beautiful coastal roads in the world, from the centre of Cape Town, past the pristine beaches of Camps Bay, to the soaring and wending pass of Chapman’s Peak Drive.
Then take to the air in a powerful Robinson or Bell helicopter, flown by an experienced pilot who knows the vagaries of Cape Town’s weather, for the only chopper tour to circumnavigate Robben Island. Return along the Blouberg coastline – which is the epicentre of Cape Town’s kiteboarding community and is always dotted with high-speed colourful kites – for the classic view of Table Mountain; be sure to have your camera ready to get the shot of the planet’s most-photographed mountain!
