EXPERIENCE THE EXTRAORDINARY

CAPE TOWN TANDEM PARAGLIDING offers the everyday man on the street a taste of the extraordinary, unforgettable experience of flight. A birds eye view of one of the most beautiful cities in the world. No license required. No previous experience.  Just you, the pilot and the open skies.

Cape Town from the air is a site to behold. Nestled between the iconic Table Mountain and the beautiful Atlantic ocean. With the palm-lined Camps Bay below you, and Robben Island clearly in view, just on the horizon. Soaring like a bird, riding the wind, it’s an experience you will never forget.

Should I? Shouldn’t I?
Nerves are normal. But don’t overthink it. You are in safe hands. And honestly, once you are airborne, your only thought will be one of awe and wonder… and when can I fly again.

Is it safe?
Yes, as safe as driving your car.
Tandem gliders are specifically designed for two people, enabling “the everyday joe” to experience flight, with a qualified pilot.

COME FLY WITH US!
Our Cape Town flights launch from Signal Hill and Lions Head.
Centrally located, and easily accessible by car, bus or taxi.
Lions Head, requires a bit of a hike (15 – 20 min), to access. And is available on request. Weather permitting.
Both launch sites form part of the Table Mountain National Park, offering spectacular views over the Mother city and Atlantic Seaboard.
