  • 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
