From Lion’s Head to Table Mountain – Discover Cape Town’s Beauty from Above (Video)

How well do you know Cape Town? Have you ever climbed Lion’s Head or appreciated the view from Table Mountain? When you bustle through the city centre on your way to work, do you stop to admire the architecture?

If you’ve always wanted to have a birds-eye view of Cape Town, this video will blow your mind. The Two Wheels Across film crew spent six weeks filming the breathtaking Cape Town scenery, from above!

The result is a 2:37-minute video called “Rise Above Cape Town!” that features all the splendour the city has to offer, from Lion’s Head, Table Mountain and V&A Waterfront Marina to Camps Bay, the Cape Town Central Business District and much more.

Watch the video to see if you can spot your favourite landmarks in Cape Town:
