Activity description

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

No other activity would let you enjoy spectacular panoramas of Table Mountain and 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.

You will be welcomed, 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!

Tandem flight

Please note that the activity lasts 30 minutes, 10 of which will be flight time. Flight duration varies, as paragliding is 100% dependent upon on the weather conditions.

The reason for Parapax's popularity is the fact that every flight is different and they tailor-make the flight to your wishes. The flight planning is 100% weather dependant and the team have become experts at judging weather. The pilots study 6 – 12 different wind and weather websites every morning, for a full accurate weather assessment. This means there is no time wasting or unnecessary delays. Trust Parapax to give you a safe experience to remember forever! If your flight is rescheduled, it’s for a good reason.

Activity requirements

Please DO NOT wear crocs, sandals, flip flops or anything similar. 

Special terms

You'll meet the friendly Parapax staff at the designated meeting point, just keep a look out for people in orange branded t-shirts and red caps.

It’s essential to allow some leeway when booking your flight. Make sure you book right at the beginning of your stay. The Cape often has ‘tricky’ weather and folks always regret it when they call on the last day of their visit and there happens to be a strong SE wind blowing. The most advisable thing is to do your paragliding flight on your first day in Cape Town and be flexible with your time. The whole experience can take as little as 1 hour (and you can be in the air for 30 mins of that!).

Although Parapax fly 365 days a year, from sunrise to sunset it’s always weather dependant and they only fly when it’s safe. Sunset tandem flights are their speciality, but optimal flying is generally between 9am and 2pm. Sunset flights are scheduled from 5pm to 7pm in both summer and winter.

You can opt for the shuttle collection, which costs R200 for the first person and R100 pp thereafter.

Do not forget to bring
  • Comfortable, closed running/walking shoes or hiking boots
  • T-shirt or long sleeved top, fleece jacket or windbreaker, long or short pants
  • Sunscreen and a hat
  • Bottled water and snacks

Lots of fun. Friendly instructors. You feel very safe and calm. I was suprised by how calming it was to be in mid air. It was less of a shocking thrill and more like what it might feel like to be a bird sitting on its couch on its day off.

There was absolutely nothing about this that was at all scared. It was as simple as taking a stroll along the beach. At the same time exhilarating as you step out off the mountain top and take flight.

Exhilarating!
