Hang Gliding in Stellenbosch, Cape Winelands.

Stellenbosch is less than an hour’s drive from Cape Town and yet it feels like a completely different place. Unlike flat-topped Table Mountain the mountains here are saw-toothed and reach much higher into the sky. Vineyard embossed hills roll off in every direction and the town itself has a quaint historic feel. Stellenbosch adventure operators offer many adrenalin activities to add some extra sparkle into your Winelands tour and hang gliding must be up there with the most exciting of them all.
The heat that rises in the valley’s surrounding Stellenbosch create ideal conditions for hang gliding and the beauty of the area will amaze you when you view it from above. On clear days you’ll be able to see Table Mountain in the distance.
