Paragliding in Port Elizabeth

Only 10 minutes outside of Port Elizabeth is a training dune where paragliders learn to fly throughout the year. But if you just want to just try a flight, soaring above the dunes with views of the sea, then a tandem flight is the way to go.

Port Elizabeth's coastal launch sites benefit from an onshore sea breeze that produces lift off the coastal dunes and ridges. Popular launch sites include Maitlands Hill, Oubos and Lady Slipper.

No special equipment is required - come as you are; but remember to pack in a camera for birds-eye images of this beautiful area.
