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.

I would give 5 stars but the experience is overall extremely short. The winds were favourable for us and the flight time was promised to last 15 minutes however we didn’t get to be in the air more than 7 minutes. I wish we could have enjoyed the scenery a bit more. However the pilots are professional and on top of security and I felt really safe and could enjoy the ride!

Absolutely amazing. The views were spectacular and unfortunately, we did not have too many thermals so could not spend maximum time in the air. The "roller-coaster" experience over the ocean before we landed was the highlight. I felt absolutely safe the entire time and even my husband who is scared of height loved the paragliding. JUST DO IT

Wonderful flight, however the winds in CT can be very strong so we were rescheduled. Would suggest booking as early in the day as possible as crowds and winds do pick up. Avoid booking to fly on a public holiday eg New Years Dayn as this was a huge logistics issue re availability of Pilots and travel back from landing site. Pilot and ground team were great re the event it self. A must do event. Enjoy.
