During an exhilarating tandem paragliding flight from Signal Hill or Lion's Head, enjoy amazing views over Cape Town, its beaches and winelands as well as the iconic Table Mountain.
What a unique way to discover one of South Africa's biggest cities! No other adventure activity would let you enjoy spectacular panoramas of Table Mountain and City Bowl with no windows to block the view. And more than that, you'll take home sensational and unforgettable memories of your trip to Cape Town!
You'll be taking off on Signal Hill (at the end of Signal Hill Road), one of Cape Town's landmarks. Where you'll be welcomed by the Parapax Staff.
No matter how nervous you might feel before takeoff (or for some, even the very thought of paragliding), the experienced and internationally accredited team will put you at ease. You will be welcomed, signed up, and briefed on the launch. Once you're securely clipped in, all you need to do is take a few light steps before you're flying! With an expert pilot behind you, you will feel just great!
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 and will gently glide through the air at around 40km/hr.
In optimal weather conditions, you even have the chance 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 really, really fun! This, like the aerobatics before landing, are completely optional of course!
