Tandem Paragliding Experience
Book Now With Activity Bridge
Cape Town is one of the most spectacular places in the world to paraglide. Lion’s Head and Signal are the only sites that we fly from because of their location and the stunning views of Table Mountain and the Cape Town area. There are many other flying sites nearby, including, 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 5-30mins.
No Experience Required
As a tandem paragliding passenger you do not require any previous knowledge of paragliding at all. Your pilot will brief you on everything you need to know 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 generally soft (most often we land on large grassy fields with no obstacles or dangers.
What should I wear ?
- Closed shoes, preferably lace up shoes like sports shoes (required)
- Long pants (recommended)
- Light jacket or wind breaker (recommended)
- Suncream, hat and sunglasses (recommended)
How Long will the flight last ?
Anything from 5 to 30 minutes.
“5 minutes! That’s really short!” We know and we agree. We like to have long flights as much as you do. However, paragliding is weather dependent and the duration of the flight depends on the amount of lift available at the time. This is constantly changing and flight durations vary throughout the day and from day to day. If you want a guaranteed flight time then gliding is not for you.
