Tandem Paragliding in Cape Town

Tandem Paragliding in Cape Town

Cape Town is one of the most spectacular places in the world to paraglide. Lion’s Head is the site that we fly from most commonly because of its location and the stunning views of Table Mountain and the Cape Town area. However, there are many flying sites in the area including Signal Hill, Sir Lowry’s Pass (just past Somerset West), Franschoek and Hermanus. Tandem paragliding instructional flights are a great way of getting into paragliding or just experiencing the joy of freeflight. Flights last anything from 10-30mins.
