DJI Mavic Pro View of the Port of Cape Town


This epic video by ProCinemaFX confirms two things: (1) Cape Town is one of the world's most beautiful cities and (2) when its footage is properly shot and color graded, the DJI Mavic Pro can hold its own against much larger drones.  The video shows the gorgeous city on the Cape of Good Hope from several angles, with particular focus on its port.  The Port of Cape Town is one of the most important in Africa; it's second in container traffic to Durban but the country's largest for dry bulk freight.

Vaughan Wilson

By many estimations, South Africa's Cape Town is the most beautiful city in the world.  In this video, contributor Vaughan Wilson makes a good case for this argument.  In a brilliant drone video, he gives us a bird's eye view of this amazing city on the South Atlantic Ocean, near the fabled Cape of Good Hope, and overlooked by the spectacular Table Top Mountain.  The video also provides some amazing views of some of the lesser known areas just outside of the great city, the second-largest in South Africa after Johannesburg.

Superpod of Dolphins, Cape Town, South Africa


Due to ocean currents and weather patterns, the South African city Cape Town offers a cornucopia of marine mammal life.  In this amazing drone video, contributor Naudewasheresuper used a drone to film a pod of hundreds of dolphins swimming near a kayaker in Camp's Bay, part of the waters surrounding Cape Town.  This is the spot where the Atlantic and Indian oceans meet and mix, acting a magnet for dolphines.  The seeming synchronization of their motion is hynotizing.

Table Bay is so named because it sits in the shadow of Table Mountain, above Cape Town near the southern tip of South Africa.  Due to its location at the border between the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, the area has always sported a diversity of marine life.  Contributor Exclusive Aerials flew a DJI Phantom 4 drone over the bay and created this impressive drone film of whales and dolphins passing through these waters during seasonal migration.

Where 2 Oceans Meet - Cape Point, South Africa


Cape Town owes its existence to being on a decent natural harbor at a critical point on the African coast, near where the Atlantic meets the Indian Ocean.  While the junction is technically at Cape Agulcas, at the southern tip of the country, the symbolic meeting point is at the tip of the Cape of Good Hope.  Top contributor Luke Maximo Bell used a DJI Phantom 3 Pro drone to create this amazing aerial view of this mythical spot.

Camps Bay lies on the opposite side of Table Mountain from Cape Town, north of Hout Bay.  Contributor WhattoDo used a DJI Phantom 4 Pro drone to fly over this body of water on a typically sunny South African day.  The result is a stunning aerial look at angry Atlantic waves crashing against a majestic shoreline.  The bird's eye views of the coast suggest why this is one of the most fashionable areas of greater Cape Town.

Finding Snow in Cape Town


With one of the world's most delightful climates, South Africa's Cape Town is generally not associated with snowcover. That's what is so amazing about this drone video from LukeMaximoBell, who managed to use a drone to capture this stunningly beautiful city after a rare snowstorm.  While the snow occurred in the areas of higher elevation around the city rather than right on the coast, it's still a very rare sight and one which is amazing from a bird's eye perspective.
