Cape Town Tandem Paragliding

To truly experience the beauty for which Cape Town is famed, take to the air with a tandem paragliding flight. Fully-certified pilots from Cape Town Tandem Paragliding have years of experience and they have done thousands of tandem flights. They will take you soaring whether you are young or old, able-bodied, paraplegic or wearing prosthetics - as long as you weigh less than 120 kilograms.

Most flights take place from launch sites on Lion’s Head and Signal Hill, giving you a bird’s eye view of Cape Town city and her surrounding suburbs and coastline with Table Mountain as the backdrop. Hermanus and Sir Lowry’s Pass are two other great launch sites located outside of Cape Town.

No experience is necessary. Your pilot will brief you fully on take-off, the flight and landing. Our landing sites are large grassy fields that are free from obstacles and dangers. Flight duration ranges from five to 30 minutes, depending on the weather and wind conditions.

Launching from Lion’s Head in good conditions, you may soar above the summit to fly up the cliffs of Table Mountain to enjoy views of the Clifton beaches and Twelve Apostles mountains. Signal Hill flights at sunset reward you with views of the city in soft light.

As all too many cameras have been dropped, opt for high-quality photos and videos taken by your pilot, for a small additional fee, while you enjoy the flight. GoPro cameras on a specially-adapted extendable pole deliver super cool action photos and video of you and the panoramic views from all sorts of crazy angles. View the photos and video after the flight without any obligation to purchase.

Wear comfortable running/walking shoes and long pants, and take along a wind-proof jacket. Sunblock, a hat and drinking water are recommended. After the flight, a comfortable vehicle will collect you from the landing site and return you to your start point.
