This tandem paragliding flight, in Cape Town, is your chance to fly like a bird. Take off from Lion's Head or Signal Hill with your qualified instructor, and enjoy a stunning aerial view of the city below - free of noisy engines or propellers.
At the launch site, you'll be met by your instructor and briefed on what to expect during the flight. Next, you'll be introduced to the equipment, given a helmet, and secured in the harness in front of the pilot. Take-off requires just a few steps, before the wind fills the canopy - and you're airborne! As you glide serenely through the air, you can admire the scenery below and even take photos with your own camera - just be sure to keep a tight hold on it! Your instructor will also be happy to point out the features of landscape and terrain that create perfect flying conditions. Taking advantage of naturally rising air currents, they'll guide you towards the predetermined landing point, where you'll finally - reluctantly - touch down. The voucher also includes transport back to the top of the hill.
