We are based in Stellenbosch and operate from Stellenbosch airfield, which boasts one of the most scenic runways in South Africa. We offer three specific packages, but can also adapt any package to suit your personal needs.
The Cape Winelands is a big and spread-out area of at least 22 000 square kilometres that stretches from Cape Town into the Karoo. To see it all will take days. But with Cape to Karoo Flyventures you can now see the most beautiful and biggest part of it in one hour.
Take off from Stellenbosch, the heart of the Winelands and fly low over the Paarl Valley, the awesome Du Toit’s Mountains and Bainskloof Pass, a magnificent piece of engineering, built in 1853 by Andrew Geddes Bain. It is a national monument and still regarded as one of the best passes in South Africa. Enter the Breede River Valley where the wide Breede River slithers like a silver snake through the valley, framed by a stretching quilt of vineyards.
Take in a bird’s eye view of the Stettyn Mountains and fly over the towns of Worcester and Robertson to turn southbound towards Franschhoek via one of the most beautiful passes in the world. See little France with wine farms like Haute Cabriere, La Motte and Le’Ormirans from the air. Magnifique! The rugged ridge of Simonsberg Mountain guides you back to Stellenbosch.
