Hop on a helicopter and start your adventure towards the historic Robben Island, located 6.9km west of the coast. Your pilot will circumnavigate the whole island for you, so you will get a good view from all angles. You will get a unique perspective on the island that was fortified and used as a prison from the late 17th century to 1996 and saw Nelson Mandela imprisoned on it for 18 of the 27 years he served behind bars.

En route back to the mainland, you will get a postcard view of the majestic Table Mountain and Cape Town in front of the beautiful backdrop that is the landscape surrounding the city. Use the opportunity to snap some amazing pictures whilst flying over Table Bay.
