Take to the skies with Grootbos to witness the Southern tip of Africa and the Cape Floral Kingdom from new heights with a mind-blowing perspective.
There is a private runway on Grootbos so whether you are arriving by air for a speedy arrival or desire a scenic tour of the area you can feel assured that it departs and lands right on the 2500 hectare reserve. Those that want to take to the skies can board a Cessna Aircraft and experience mountains, vineyards, shipwrecks, whales, sharks and other marine life from great heights. African Wings is the operator that Grootbos has entrusted with the safety of their guests because they have years of experience and conduct a professional, safe and comfortable environment where the experience can be enjoyed to its fullest.
Guests can choose between a classic flight to Cape Point, Table Mountain, the Southern tip of Africa and whale watching trips in season (July to December). The sight is absolutely incredible as you grasp the sheer size of these gentle giants against the brilliant blue of the Atlantic Ocean. At this time of year the Walker Bay area is littered with mothers swimming with their calves, some of these calves are albinos and are iridescent against the turquoise waters. The record is spotting 135 whales in half an hour! Great white sharks have also been seen leisurely cruising through the waters. To capture these rare spectacles there is a smooth and stable platform with a removable door to capture an unobstructed view.
The flights can also be used as a speedy transport to other game reserves in the Western and Eastern Cape or a transfer from Cape Town Airport. This way guests avoid all traffic and make traveling an exhilarating journey.
This voyage is an awe-inspiring experience that will be unforgettable and possibly life-changing! Let your perspectives be altered as you soar through the sky on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with Grootbos.
