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!

Customer Reviews

Great respond n booking and keeping up to date with the weather. We enjoyed the team and, of course the paragliding immensely and had loads of fun! Loved it and we'll definitely be back. - Ronel Collins


Real pros making it a really marvelous experience - Hans Palm


The trip with parapax tandem skydive was amazing. from the beginning the staff were efficient and able to give m e the information i needed to chose what i wanted. They followed up with a text and call arranging to pick us up. Nothing was any trouble. on the morning of the flight, the staff were friendly, put us at ease, so relaxed and just lovely. The owner of the business was an awesome warm and generous character who wasnt there to take your money but instead to make sure you were safe and had the best experience. we finished our flight with a nice coffee at the sea front - provided for us, it was perfect. I would highly recommend this trip - friends have used other companies in cape town and have been disappointed. I would certainly use this company again, it was fun, professional and all the staff were just lovely, it was like being on a day out with friends rather than with people you had just met, they were so enthusiastic about it. thank you so much Guys, a great experience ... we will be back. Niall & Favas - Niall Campbell
