  • 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!

  • Table Mountain: Tandem Paragliding in Cape Town

    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
