I recently had the opportunity to fly around the Peninsula in a helicopter and test out Garmin’s new VIRB camera with NAC Makana Aviation. On a perfect day, with perfect visibility, we took to the skies and I got to see Cape Town from a whole new angle. I mean, I thought Cape Town was beautiful before, but from the sky…I was breathless! Between the VIRB, my iPhone and my eyes, I was just trying to take in all the beauty below.
The flight takes off at the V&A Waterfront and flies over the harbour, around the magnificent Cape Point and back to the Waterfront over False Bay. It was such an amazing experience and I highly highly recommend it. If you’re stuck for Christmas gifts, nothing could beat this. NAC Makana offers a really good rate of R750 per person if you’re sharing the flight with others. It really is well worth it!
This is the video of the experience, shot on 3 different VIRB cameras. They are great little machines and Garmin has a range of different accessories specifically for sportsmen and adventurers like watches and heart monitors and things. Check out the site for more details.
