  • Cape Town: Tandem Paragliding Adventure

    1. Cape Town: Tandem Paragliding Adventure

    After a short explanation, you and your pilot will take off from a mountain slope under a canopy that resembles a parachute. Once inflated overhead, you will take just a few steps or a short run to take off from the gentle slope, the wind will catch the canopy and you will be airborne. In the air, complete control over direction and speed gives your pilot the freedom to soar ridges, rise on warm currents of air and cover distance. The tour providers have a proven safety record from day one, a credit to company procedures. Each season starts with brand new equipment and well-maintained throughout the year. All pilots are internationally recognized Tandem Flight Instructors. Each passenger is briefed and issued with a helmet. All pilots carry complete reserve and communication systems and weather conditions are carefully assessed before you are taken up and again on take off. You will be ...

    Fantastic experience. Earl was a brilliant pilot and easy to chat to. Will definitely be doing it again and recommending!

    2. Table Mountain: Tandem Paragliding in Cape Town

    When you arrive at the meeting point you will be welcomed by a manager and the rest of the team who will check that you have suitable clothing for the flight. You will then be assigned to a pilot and fitted into your harness and helmet. Your pilot will brief you about the takeoff, as this varies depending on the conditions. Sometimes you will need to run a bit before flying, but this is easy and your well-trained and experienced assistants will ensure a smooth takeoff. After the initial buzz of the takeoff, you can settle comfortably into the harness and enjoy the ride. It really is like flying like a bird: come see for yourself. Your crew is world-class, using state of the art equipment and flying a place they know very well. This is the safest form of paragliding you can get. Your local provider’s impeccable safety record over many years of flying speaks for itself.

    Great experience to paraglide from signal hill down onto beach. Only disappointing thing was that at the end of the flight the guides downloaded pictures and videos that they had taken on the flight before you were then passed over to a guy who responsible for taking the payment. You really had no choice other than to accept as the pictures had been downloaded to your phone it would have been better if they had advised that there was a cost and so if you wished to pay this then they would download the pics and videos not the other way round

  • Cape Town: Tandem Paragliding Experience

    3. Cape Town: Tandem Paragliding Experience

    Meet your personal "Take-Off Manager" on arrival, and after a safety briefing you're ready for launch! Once securely clipped in, take a few light steps and within a moment you're flying! With an expert pilot behind you, relax and enjoy the stunning views. Tandem paragliding gives you an amazing sense of freedom. Once in the air most people are surprised at how relaxed they feel. You’ll sit comfortably upright like on your sofa at home, and you won’t feel like you’re sinking or falling at all. Savor the moment in the world of the eagles as you glide through the air at around 40 km/hr. In optimal weather conditions take the opportunity to fly the paraglider yourself! Your instructor will place his hands above yours to show you how to steer. It really is quite simple and utterly exhilarating. This, like the aerobatics before landing, is completely optional of course!

    I could do this everyday. Everybody was really friendly. I flew with Frank and he was great!! Say "Yes" to the rollercoaster. Going back tomorrow

    4. Cape Town: Tandem Paragliding Flight

    Meet your experienced pilot who will accompany you for the entire journey. Let the pilot take care of all of the driving so that means you can sit back and relax without needing any prior experience or training. Receive assistance from porters and your pilot for a very easy take-off. Depart from either the spectacular Signal Hill or from the iconic Lions Head Hill. As you begin gliding through the air, marvel at the incredible aerial views of Table Mountain, the City Bowl, Robben Island, and the Atlantic coastline.  The flight itself is very gentle and exhilarating, but if you need an adrenaline rush, ask your pilot to perform some acrobatics. At the end of the experience, make a soft landing at the famous Sea Point promenade or the stunning Clifton Beach respectively.
