A helicopter flight over Plettenberg Bay at the Garden Route of South Africa is a special occasion. The beautiful coastal city is almost on the border between the Eastern and Western Cape. Built on a hill, most of the city is on a steep slope that slopes down to the Indian Ocean. From almost every house you have spectacular views of the bay and the surrounding mountains.
Plettenberg Bay – Garden Route Helicopter Flights in South Africa
The coastal town has a relatively long history by South African standards. It starts between the 15th and 16th centuries when it was visited by Portuguese explorers. There is ample evidence of their visits, and history buffs can view artefacts such as the remains of the Gonzales wreck in town. Earlier European settlers came here in the late 18th century and also left behind many fascinating historical relics, such as the Old Rectory, which was built by the Dutch East India Trading Company in 1776. Not to be forgotten is Forest Hall, which was built in 1864 by William Henry Newgate. The private mansion is well worth seeing!
Nowadays, the town has a certain reputation as a hotspot for pleasure seekers and offers many leisure activities on land or on the water. From the marina on the Keurbooms River, polo in Kurland to activities such as swimming and water sports in the warm, gentle waters of the Indian Ocean.
As you step into town, you'll be greeted by a memorial to one of the symbols of this lush, almost tropical bay: a bronze statue of dolphins playing in the warm waters off the coast. With a bit of luck you can admire them on a helicopter tour in large schools.

Take a boat trip from the beach in Plettenberg Bay. It takes you at least 3 hours, only then can you watch whales in the open sea. Right and humpback whales visit the coastal region regularly. On the return trip, the stony coastline is usually approached, where many seals warm up in the sun.
The coastal city is well developed for tourism and offers many accommodations. From upscale hotels to inexpensive guest houses, accommodations are offered in different price categories. We are happy to help you find accommodation.
You have many pristine beaches to choose from. Hiking, canoeing or abseiling is only a small offer. Another attraction that is worth visiting is the Monkey land Primate Sanctuary; the world's only wild, multi-species primate sanctuary just a few minutes' drive from the city. At this point we would particularly like to praise the Birds of Eden Bird Sanctuary. A large bird park with countless wild birds under a huge net.
