Paragliding in Cape Town

Tandem paragliding is a heavenly adrenaline rush. No experience is necessary, your pilot will do all the hard work, you just need to run on take off then sit back and relax and enjoy the view, and don’t forget to smile for the camera.

A para-glider is a free flying, foot launched aircraft. A tandem para-glider is specifically designed to carry two people. The passenger is strapped into a harness in front of the experienced pilot.

Don’t confuse paragliding with skydiving, you will not be jumping out of a plane. Phew!
