Tandem Paragliding Experience in Cape Town

Take to the skies on this unforgettable tandem paragliding experience, taking off from either Signal Hill or Lion's Head!

This tandem paragliding experience, in Cape Town, is a chance to enjoy the unique sensation of free flight. Launch from Lion's Head or Signal Hill, and glide serenely with stunning views of city, mountain, and coastline.

At the prearranged location, you'll be met by your instructor and briefed on what to expect during the flight. You'll then make your way to the launch point, where you'll be fastened to the pilot's harness, ready for take off. If there's a good wind, you'll only take a few steps, before the canopy inflates - and you have lift off! Taking advantage of naturally rising air currents, your pilot will guide you in lazy circles - giving you plenty of opportunity to admire the scenery and take photos. Free of noisy engines or propellers, they'll happily answer any questions you have concerning flying conditions or techniques. Otherwise, you can just sit back and enjoy the ride in peace, before finally returning to solid ground.

The Tandem Paragliding Experience, in Cape Town, offers an unforgettable bird's-eye perspective, and an Experience Days voucher makes a thrilling gift for adventure seekers as young as ten.

I can't believe how much fun this was! I was pretty nervous about jumping off of Signal Hill, but a friend talked me into it. Before I had a chance to change my mind, I had a harness on and was strapped to a paragliding professional. After a quick run down the hill we were airborne and soaring over Sea Point! It was pretty amazing and I can't wait to try it again!

Well Worth Manning Up For

This was nowhere near the top of my list of things to do in Cape Town. Until I landed, then I wanted to go back up and do it again! The take off is a little tricky and intimidating since you have to do all the running but once airborne the views are worth all the nerves. Friendly staff and a great 'pilot'.

Such fun!

I was really nervous about paragliding but it couldn't have gone more smoothly. From the moment you arrive the staff are professional and make you feel comfortable, so by the time you're running off the mountain you don't feel scared at all! Josh was a fantastic pilot and pointed out loads of interesting stuff as we glided along. Can't recommend this experience enough for Capetonians!
