There’s no denying that Cape Town is pretty as a picture. No surprise then that it’s repeatedly been listed as one of the top holiday destinations in the world. Attach a camera to a drone, fly it over Cape Town, and you’ll have some winning footage. That’s exactly what San Francisco-based videographer, Eric Cheng, did.

Cheng used a drone to take his camera to the skies and film Cape Town and its surrounds. From, Cheng’s camera ventured between the Mother City’s rocky mountains and its expansive oceans, from Lion’s Head to Cape Point and Seal Island, giving viewers a glimpse of what lurks below.

Cheng’s camera drone has provided sweeping views but his high level spying on our watery neighbours is also a stark reminder of the City of Cape Town’s planned camera drone project, which would enable similar snooping into citizens’ private lives.
