TWO OCEANS AND 1100 INDIGENOUS SPECIES OF FYNBOS 1 OF ONLY 7 FLORISTIC KINGDOMS ON EARTH

FYNBOS MOUNTAIN GOURMET PICNIC

About the Tour

The magnificent Cape Point & the many reasons why you should pay it a visit. At the very tip of the Cape Peninsula, 60km south-west of the city of Cape Town, lies the magnificent Cape Point. We fly you from the V&A Waterfront to see the Cape Peninsula from the air and below. Once you have rounded the point we fly back to some hills above Misty Cliffs. This marks the site for our fynbos tour and picnic. We land on Baskloof Private nature reserve owned by Danielle and Ivan Harris. Baskloof was purchased over 40 years ago and has been restored through tireless efforts of the owners. We provide a guide who will show you in detail the various species of Fynbos and the natural history in the reserve. In particular


What you will do

The guide will take you on a 20-minute walk to the top of Platberg, the mountain of the “sleeping dog” which divides and joins Misty Cliffs and Scarborough. Here you experience breathtaking views of Misty Cliffs – possibly something only a few people have seen before. Please be careful when walking in Fynbos not to damage the plants. Always walk looking down and not ahead. Your guide will then take you to a specially selected viewing point which will be the spot for the gourmet picnic. Ammy our CTX chef has prepared a meal based on your requests and dietary requirements. Your host will either be your pilot or a CTX ground host who will make sure the meal is a special proudly south African meal. You will also be treated to wines from Cape Point Vineyards - the most Southern Wine Farm in Africa. After lunch, you will have some time on the reserve to examine the fauna and flora in further detail. We provide some nice comfy cushions (bean bags) so that you can relax and sleep while your food settles. Once properly relaxed we fly you back to the V&A. You might wonder how you can be close to Cape Town but so far away from civilization.

Keep these in mind

Check In Time

Please check in 20-30 minutes prior to your scheduled Take Off time. This will allow enough time for us to take weights, conduct a safety briefing and issue tickets. After this has been conducted you can relax on the viewing deck and take some great pre-flight pictures and enjoy the atmosphere.


Seating

Please be aware that seating allocation on all our sharing flights are done according to weight and balance which is done during your safety briefing and ticketing. Should you want to choose your own seats you can book an Exclusive Flight at the cost of one additional seat and you are guaranteed the ‘best seats in the house.

Best Pictures

For the best pictures we recommend that you wear darker coloured clothing as whites reflect off the inside of the windows and can spoil that epic shot. We do offer In Flight Video packages where we record you and your flight, including audio, and put it on a USB for you. Note that not all aircraft has this system available so please requests this on check in.


Weather

All flights are weather dependent. Should the conditions not be ideal for flying we will try to reschedule to the next best available flight window. Note that the temperature in the sky is exactly the same as on the ground in case you are wondering what to wear.
