Full description

Enjoy an adrenaline-fuelled paragliding adventure in Cape Town and marvel at the incredible views of the Atlantic Coastline, Lion's Head, Signal Hill, Camp's Bay, Clifton Beaches, and more. Fly high into the sky with your experienced instructor and create unforgettable memories of a lifetime.

Meet your pilot and other daredevils at Signal Hill to begin your adventure. First, get a short induction from your pilot before you take off from a mountain slope under a canopy that resembles a parachute. 

Get ready for liftoff; take 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.

Ride side-by-side with your instructor and feel the exhilaration, head rush, and incredible sensation of free-fall flying.

End your day on a high as you experience a once-in-a-lifetime paragliding ride that you won't forget. Get hooked on the adrenaline high and see views of Lion's Head, Signal Hill, Camp's Bay, Clifton Beaches, Waterfront, and Robben Island, that you won't forget.

Super easy communication, their team was open to chatting via WhatsApp due to a few shifts and plan because of weather concerns (they are transparent about this in the activity description). We shifted our date twice, but the day we finally went everything went off without a hitch. Beautiful sunny day, super safe crew, and very affordable photos and videos for memories. The only negative I'd have to say is that the GoPro they were using cut out twice during my flight, so I had a bit limited video. However still enjoyed the experience, and would recommend for others to do it.

In principle it was very good, but there is a star deduction because my girlfriend's tandem partner complained loudly in our presence that he actually had no desire to fly for this provider. That spoiled my girlfriend's mood a bit. Otherwise everything was great. We had to reschedule our flight twice due to the weather. The communication with the organizer was great and absolutely uncomplicated.

It was an all-round successful experience. At the starting point we were warmly welcomed by the team. We had to wait a little longer for a "pilot" because he was still on the road from the previous flight. Then everything happened super fast and we were airborne. We had a great view and lots of fun. The landing was very smooth. After landing, we were brought back to the starting point together with our "pilots". Photos and videos were taken during the flight, which we were then able to purchase. It is definitely worth an experience!
