We were traveling by helicopter at the end of March. My 1 year old son and I were the only ones, which is why we had the helicopter all to ourselves. Our pilot was great. He has told and explained and shown a lot. Since the weather was great, we had a great view of Cape Town. Greeting at check in was also very good and super friendly.
