Aerial photography: Cape Town from the air

Posted by Teagan Cunniffe on 18 August 2014

In the September issue of Getaway (on shelves now) you’ll find aerial photography of Cape Town in Sonya Schoeman’s feature on Simon’s Town. Have a look at the other gorgeous photos that we couldn’t fit into the magazine.

On a personal note, this was my first time in a helicopter. And it was thrilling! I would do it again in a heartbeat – although maybe not shooting out the open door-frame, pointing down towards the very, very distant ground of Cape Town this time. A huge thanks to pilot Wilhelm of Cape Town Helicopters and Vuyi Qubeka!
