Helicopter Tours Johannesburg


Departing from the Ultimate Heliport in Midrand, you fly Northbound, routing along the N1 Highway towards the sprawling developments of Pretoria East. Coming into Pretoria CBD from the south-eastern side, you will immediately recognise the landmarks that make the South African Capital City as impressive as it is. One can see the majestic Union Buildings (constructed in 1913 and now the current office of the president); Loftus stadium; Pretoria University; the Zoo, and several other iconic and administrative buildings within the City Centre.

Leaving the CBD behind and flying westward, we follow the magnificent Magaliesberg mountain range; these quartzite cliffs head towards Hartbeespoort Dam. According to Geologists, these are among the oldest mountains in the world, almost 100 times older than Everest. Your view from the sky is truly the best way to appreciate the exquisite scenery below. While flying around the town and dam wall, you will understand why Hartbeespoort is one of the most popular tourist and hiking destinations in Gauteng, South Africa.

Routing south-east back to Midrand, you will have the option to overfly either Lanseria Airport or Atteridgeville Township. Landing for lunch is an option on this leg of the flight, depending on the aforementioned decision.

Alternatively, the route can be flown in reverse and departure from Lanseria Airport can be arranged.

This flight would be approximately one hour excluding time on the ground for your meal. Additionally, we can add to your tour, champagne, canapés or flowers. Please ask us for a quote as prices are frequently subject to change.


Once received in VIP fashion at our offices at the Ultimate Heliport in Midrand, you take off in style, departing along the N1 south towards the Buccleuch interchange.

Routing over Sandton, you will see the richest square mile in Africa. You can see quite an economic difference either side of the M1 highway; Alexandra township – Nelson Mandela’s first place of residence - to the east and the luxury of Sandton to the west.

Continuing along the M1, you see Melrose Arch, Rosebank, and the impressive houses of Houghton Estate

Approaching the “City of Gold”, you will be amazed by how different the city looks from your vantage point! Flying around the CBD, you’ll recognise the landmarks of Jozi; the Sentec tower, Nelson Mandela Bridge, Wits University, Carlton tower, Ponte City [The tallest residential skyscraper in Africa] and Ellis Park Stadium. Leaving the CBD behind, you route over Gold Reef City Theme Park towards Soweto. You will be able to see the famous Orlando power station’s cooling towers and the final 2010 Soccer world cup stadium – Soccer City.

Next, we will fly to the Cradle of Humankind [declared a UNESCO World Heritage site] passing over Roodepoort and Krugersdorp.
