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.

No Experience Required
As a tandem paragliding passenger you do not require any previous knowledge of the paragliding at all. The pilot will brief you on take off and landing shortly before the flight. It is important that you listen to the instructions of the pilot and to have total confidence in his abilities. Take offs are easy (just a few steps usually)and landings are soft (most often we land on large grassy fields with no obstacles or dangers.
