Wonderful Wines and Exceptional Experience

Lourensford Wine Estate

Enjoy a part of proud Cape history when you set foot at Lourensford, one of the world’s most beautiful wine estates, established by Governor Willem Adriaan van der Stel in 1709, today owned by renowned businessman Dr Christo Wiese. The pilot will let you enjoy a visual feast and panoramic views of the wine estate’s 4000 hectares of forest, fynbos, fruit orchards, and vineyards, which rise up against the slopes of the Helderberg mountains, en route with Cape Town Helicopters, to Lourensford Wine Estate.

The Lourensford Wine Estate, a popular tourist destination, offers scenic splendour, a winery, restaurant, coffee roastery, an art gallery, and much more. Visitors are tempted by an array of choice experiences ranging from wine tasting and winery tours, roasted coffee at the Coffee Roastery, or a variety of freshly baked cakes, quiches and muffins from Red Riding Hood Deli.

End your day at the Lourensford Wine Estate with an Italian-inspired meal and a glass of Lourensford wine at the Millhouse Kitchen.

Please note: All tastings, pairings, refreshments, and luncheons are for your own account.

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.


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.


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.
