Enjoy an exhilarating tandem paragliding flight from Signal hill or Lions head. It is by far probably one of the most exciting adventure sports in Cape Town.
No other activity would let you enjoy spectacular panoramas of the Table Mountain, the City Bowl with no windows to block your view! No matter how nervous you might feel before take off, the experienced team will put you at ease.
Once you are in the air, enjoy a birds eye view of one of the most beautiful cities in the world!
We always meet at the very end of Signal hill drive, once you get to the parking area you will be welcomed by our take off manager Witness, signed up and briefed on the launch. Once you’re securely clipped in, all you need to do is take a few light steps before you’re flying! With an expert pilot behind you, you will feel just great!
Tandem paragliding gives you an amazing sense of freedom. Once in the air, most people are surprised at how relaxed they feel. You’ll sit comfortably upright (like on your sofa at home). You won’t feel like you’re sinking or falling at all, since you glide, nearly horizontally, through the air at around 40 km/hr.
In optimal weather conditions you even have the chance to fly the paraglider yourself! Your instructor will place his hands above yours to show you how to steer. It really is quite simple and really, really fun! This, like the aerobatics before landing, are completely optional of course!
Our flight planning is 100% weather dependant and we have become experts at judging weather. Our pilots study 6 – 12 different wind and weather websites every morning, for a full accurate weather assessment. This means there is no time wasting or unnecessary delays. Trust us and we will give you a safe experience to remember forever! If we reschedule or ask you to come a little later, it’s for a good reason.
Flight generally last between 12 and 15 minutes. The hole process from arrival, briefing, payment and clipped in will take up to 1 hour.

Naturally, it’s best is to drink lots of water and use that suntan lotion before arriving.
