Take to the skies with Cape Town Tandem Paragliding

If you enjoy breath-taking views and a taste of adventure on your travels, Cape Town Tandem Paragliding offers an unmissable opportunity to take to the skies above the city. Strapped into a harness beneath a lightweight sail, you and your experienced pilot guide will soar effortlessly over Cape Town, admiring the spectacular views and sense of freedom that only comes with gliding.

Whether you have tried paragliding before or are a complete beginner, this is the ideal chance to experience the thrill of gliding above Cape Town in a safe and comfortable manner. With launch sites at Signal Hill and Lion's Head you will enjoy a fabulous bird's-eye view of the city and nearby Table Mountain. Venture a little further out to Hermanus, Sir Lowry's Pass or Franschoek to see even more of this beautiful country.

An unforgettable adventure experience

All of Cape Town Tandem Paragliding's pilots are fully certified by the South African Association of Paragliding (SAHPA), and have lots of experience in working with people of all ages and abilities (including those with disabilities), so everyone can take part in the activity. No previous experience is required – your pilot will instruct you in everything you need to know, and be there every step of the way to ensure your flight is fun and comfortable.

Your specific launch site will depend on weather conditions on the day, including wind speed, direction and visibility – the operators will choose the best site to ensure your flight is the best it can be. Glides can last anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes, depending on conditions, and your pilot will do their best to make the most of your time in the air and get the best views.

What's more, pilots use GoPro cameras to record your paragliding flight, including spectacular shots of you flying through the air with the landscape below and videos of the experience. You can look through the photos and video clips afterward and decide if you would like to purchase some of them on SD card as a souvenir of your amazing adventure.
