Abseil Africa was an epic adventure! We did the waterfall rappel and had a blast. Cheesy, G, and Owen were awesome guides. They were funny and knowledgeable about the area as well as the process of everything we did. The breakfast at Sunbird Lodge was a perfect way to start the day before the hike and cliff jumping. I highly recommend this to anyone visiting Cape Town! - Garrett McGhee

A Unique way to Experience Cape Town’s Table Mountain. This 5 km track will take you on an adventurous off road track down the side of Signall Hill into Bo Kaap. The Experience continues as you are transported to Table Mountain for you final run down a single track off this world famous land mark!

We start at Table Mountain’s Lower Parking Area just off Kloof Nek Road. This is at the Table Mountain Info Office and there is plenty of safe parking.

After guests are kitted out with their helmets and gloves they get transported to the top of Signal Hill for their 1st Downhill Run. The trip is not only fun but also informative as the guides will keep you entertained with info about the area aswell!

We get picked up in Bo Kaap by the driver and then we head for the main run down Table Mountain from Dead Man’s tree all the way down to Deer Park where the driver will pick us up again and bring us back to the starting point at Lower Table Mountain.
Scooters are non motorised making this eco friendly. These Swiss designed scooters are used in the Alps during the summer season on the ski slopes when the snow is gone. All trips are guided by professional qualified guides.

De Table Moutain Scootours is een echte aanrader voor groot en klein !!! Een fatastische en leuke manier om de Tafelberg te verkennen op een niet alledaagse wijze. Een echte aanrader voor groot en klein, jong en oud en helemaal niet moeilijk om te doen. Een topper !! - Gerry Faseur

Activity Description

Enjoy an exhilarating tandem paragliding flight from Signal hill or Lions head. It is by far probably one of the most exciting adventure sports in Cape Town.

No other activity would let you enjoy spectacular panoramas of the Table Mountain, the City Bowl with no windows to block your view! No matter how nervous you might feel before takeoff (or for some, even the very thought of paragliding), the experienced team will put you at ease.

Once you are in the air enjoy a birds eye view of one of the most beautiful cities in the world!

Arrangements

ProviderPara-Pax Tandem Paragliding
DurationOpen Ended
WhenThis service is available all year round 7 days a week, weather dependent.
WhereWE ALWAYS MEET AT THE VERY END OF SIGNAL HILL ROAD, under the first thorn tree, on the take-off site, at the parking place, (NOT at the Lions head parking lot) when we are flying in Cape town. Meet our friendly Parapax staff (look for our orange branded t-shirts and red caps).
WeatherThis service is very weather dependent.
What to WearPlease bring sensible, good, closed shoes (running shoes/trainers/sneakers/takkies – whatever you like to call them). Mountain and hiking boots are even better. Any kind of sandal, Croc, flip flop, flopflip, or anything that flips or flops is NOT good. If you don’t have closed shoes, just tell us and we have every sized shoe with us (from little feet to BIGFOOT!). Clothing-wise, wear shorts if its hot, but generally Jeans and a T-shirt with a windbreaker is the best bet. We include everything needed for the flight (helmets and all flying equipment) as well as water, suntan lotion, snacks and refreshments. Naturally, it’s best is to drink lots of water and use that suntan lotion before arriving.
Things to BringSun-block (sunscreen) and hat (it’s often sunny and we don’t want you getting sunburned!) and drinking water!
Guests or SpectatorsSpectators can wait on the ground for the guests to return

Notes

We always meet at the very end of Signal hill drive, once you get to the parking area you will be welcomed by our take off manager Witness, 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 (like on your sofa at home). You won’t feel like you’re sinking or falling at all, since you glide, nearly horizontally, through the air at around 40 km/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!

Easy to find the team and very safe. The staff were exceptionally friendly and caring. Everyone had a most amazing experience and the footage was amazing. We got all the flight videos and this is being enjoyed all the time! Thank you so much and when we get to South Africa again this is a BIG doing again activity!

Took a while for the wind to be right but the team were great in the waiting. I loved the experience of paragliding, especially the fast turns towards the end! Would highly recommend. - Katie Holloway


Amazing, very professional, felt safe at all times, organised, overall great fun just wish it lasted longer! - Oliver Morgan


Unfortunately, due to inclement weather, I was unable to do the flight. Having said that, I was kept up to date on weather conditions and had constant communications from the team. I received my refund without any fuss. Overall a good experience. - Lorraine Browner
