Paragliding is one of the world’s most amazing adventure activities. And where better to experience this incredible pursuit than above the beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton with the City of Cape Town, Table Mountain and the Twelve Apostles as a backdrop? Lion’s Head offers the most accessible takeoff but there are numerous other options available around the Western Cape of South Africa.
Our expert, fully qualified guides ensure that this breathtaking flight is carried out with all the necessary safety measures in place. You can concentrate on taking in the views as you float effortlessly on the moving air currents.
Tandem Paragliding uses an oversized, specially designed tandem glider and two harnesses. Now individuals who don’t want to learn how to paraglide on their own, but wish to explore the skies and soar amongst the mountains, can also enjoy the sport.
Tandem Paragliding passengers require no previous knowledge of the sport. The pilot will brief you on takeoff and landing shortly before the flight.
Two of the most important things to remember: listen to the instructions of the pilot, and have total confidence in his experience.
Takeoffs are easy and landings are soft as we mostly land on large fields with no obstacles or dangers.
Each flight is different every time – but the exhilarating feeling is always incredible. One thing you won’t feel is the sensation of falling just after takeoff. This is a general misconception of most first-time flyers. Once you are securely strapped into the passenger harness in front of the pilot, the paraglider is laid out on the takeoff site facing into the wind. With a gentle tug the glider is pulled upward into the wind and begins inflating. Only once fully inflated, and after a quick line check, the pilot will instruct you to begin running forward. In a few seconds both pilot and passenger will be lifted and swept off their feet by the flying paraglider. Once the flight is underway, the pilot will help you get comfortable in your harness. The passenger has the benefit of being in front with a fantastic view of the mountains and earth below.
